It's Friday Show and Tell again!

Thank you to all those who have sent me photos of their projects for this week's Show & Tell!
Let's start with some Daisy-do finishes, shall we?

Gisela made hers to fit perfectly in a space on her wall, so left off the bottom block. It's so vibrant in reds!

Now let's see some 'Give Thanks' wall-hangers....
Lis has hers ready for the first verse to be made, and she had some help in her display as her husband made the quilt hanger for her. :-)
This hanger is made by Pepe, in pretty pinks. 
 Now to some entries for my January "Cinderella" challenge! 
I won't show the before photos, but all the entrants have them on their blogs, or emailed them to me. :-)
Jen made her apron from an old favourite denim skirt she no longer wears...
Carmen made this Valentines Day apron for her little grandaughter. I was going to do this myself to show how lovely a gift this would make for a small child, but Carmen has done the work for me! :-)
Karen's butterfly embellished apron reminded me so much of daffodils in spring!
And our final item for today's Show & Tell - Dani made this sweet apron from a pretty eyelet cotton skirt that no longer fitted. It's lovely to see favourite items we no longer wear being given a second life!
Thank you everyone for sharing your projects!
Now, have you made your Give Thanks hanging yet? What about turning an apron into a skirt? 
Don't be shy...we're all dying to see them. :-)

Mr E and I are off to visit Wendy and Joe in Ayr tomorrow, so I'd best pack some projects I've prepared for the 'New Beginnings' sewing kits, as I *know* we girls are just going to HAVE to sit and stitch a bit.
It's all quite exciting too, because this is the furthest I've been away from Charters Towers in almost a year! \o/\o/ 
It's like a one-day-holiday, and Joe is cooking. :-)
Can't ask for better than that.



  1. Have a good time in Ayr, and thanks for showing all the lovely aprons and wallhangings.

  7. Great show and tell. The aprons are so creative.


It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
