I had to be so sneaky last night. I was hiding away in my bedroom finishing the cushion for Blossom's birthday and she'd come knocking softly, enquiring, "everything okay, Mum?"....I would open the door just a wee crack and my one revealed eye would meet her two eyes as I responded, "Fine sweetie, off you go now." And I'd wait to hear those soft footsteps pattering back down the hall before heading back to the sewing machine.
I'm so pleased with the final result! I hope she is. :-)
If I can find some free time in the next 36 hours I'll see if I can make her a matching one from another of the Oopsie Daisies patterns I've stitched. If not, then I'll wait till next weekend and make her one in full view of her sparkling eyes!
A number of people has emailed me about Whisper Weft, wanting to know just what it is.
This is a photo of what I mean...
It is lovely and soft, a fusible weft-insertion lightweight interfacing. In Australia it sells for around $9.95 per metre, and in the USA it sells for around $4 per yard. I'm not sure the cost anywhere else.
If your local quilting store does not stock it try Googling 'whisper weft' in your country and see if you can find a local supplier.
Well, my husband's flight arrives in just 45 minutes so I'm off to collect him from the airport!
Have a wonderful day!
Remember to smile a lot, you never know who's day you will brighten.
