As promised Mrs Palmer

Well lookie here......it has certainly been a while since I've made some type of appearance on my blog.
I'm not even going to mention how long...for that will make me feel even worse.
With all excuses aside, and moving forward...as I seem to be forever hearing lately,
I have a blog post...requested by a very dear friend Mrs Palmer
Now I'm sure that a lot of you would know Mrs Palmer mostly by the name of Sue over at http://kiwikidspage.blogspot.com.au/

So here is to you Mrs Palmer a blog post by me......Mrs Perry
I found this cute panel of critters and thought that I would sew them up in to softies
I  have filled their bellies with lavender, they smell divine and I am now extremely calm.
 I have finished a quilt top of snowball blocks, made with Tim Holtz fabrics and shot cotton
 Now I also made a Hussif....To be honest I had no idea what a Hussif was...but after researching they are very common...it's just that I have never heard them being called that before.
This was a free pattern from the block of the month that I had joined...called Down the Rabbit Hole. By Sarah Fielke
 So I decided to embroider on my machine a collection from Alice in Wonderland
to suit the theme.
 My bunny has little watch pieces stitched to him, along with painted eyes &felt eye lids
 The fabric...is of course from the Tim Holtz range
 The clock faces suit the Rabbit for always being late & the Mad Hatter just in time for tea
Yes.....I know what your all thinking...what! another block of the month...I know! I have about a million of unfinished projects...but hey I don't drink, smoke or hang with naughty men....so this is my vice.
Last but not least my block for a charity quilt...my very first foundation pieced block, I actually quite enjoyed that process.
So there you go Mrs Palmer, I hope that I didn't disappoint.
