Several weeks ago Ebony had her 8th birthday and so many of you sent her birthday wishes but she also received a parcel from Paula in Queensland.
Now to say that I was envious would be an understatement.
When she opened it there were a huge pile of patchwork squares -laces-ribbons-ricrac-fibres-embroidery floss-buttons-beads and sequins all for her to make ATC's with.
When Ebony saw all those squares she decided that she wanted to make a little quilt.
She proceeded to lay the squares out on the floor--shifting them around until she had them arranged the way she wanted them -I tried to give advice but in her usual manner she knew what she was doing so I let her do it after all it was her quilt.
So I pinned them together and set the sewing machine up and away she went.
She now has 4 rows of 5 lots of 5inch squares stitched together.
Now let me tell you she wanted to finish the whole thing before she went to bed - yikes.
I allowed her to choose the fabric for the sashings and borders-again I had to keep my opinion to myself but I think it will be very nice when it is finished.
I am not going to show it to you until she does a little bit more so you will just have to wait a while----sorry.
I decided to make Paula a tassel to thank her for her generosity towards Ebony and I hope that she liked it--well I know she did because she has let me know.
Ebony and I each made an ATC to swap with Paula as well--mine is needle felted and Ebony"s is a card one that says Thank You to Paula.
You know I am truly amazed at the way the blogging community are so caring and encourage Ebony in all that she does----Thank you everyone.
