Welcome to our April theme....
Celebrations bring family, friends and community together.
Here we are in 2002, ready for lift off.
Mum(Colina) aged 78, myself and hubby Owen.
Soory having trouble adding photos today.
A wonderful photo and memory of a balloon flight with your mum and hubby Sandra and a spectacular balloon blanket! :))
A fab memory, Sandra. What a great photo!!
What a clever way to commemorate a special memory, Sandra.
So exciting! Love the memory for you and your family. I hope it inspires a lucky child to let their imagination soar to great heights.
My last two squares for this month (and actually completed on time!)
I made these little cross-stitch pieces so long ago that I can't even tell which decade it was. And, I thought I had given away all these crafty bits many, many years ago. So imagine my surprise when I cleaned out a closet and found them in a work basket. Just in time for the Celebrations theme.
Attaching them to the backing squares took longer than making the squares, which means that my admiration for those who regularly use appliques has been renewed and enhanced.
Thank you for a terrific month with creative and joyful contributions from everyone.
Aww, these are SO sweet, Sharon!! I LOVE the look of cross stitch, but would never have the patience for doing it....or the eyesight, these days.
What a wonderful surprise to find in your closet....I think I would find unfinished knitting projects....hahaha.
I hear you about the sewing on of appliques, I'm even slower at that than my knitting. :))
Two fabulous squares Sharon I can’t wait for all these beautiful squares to arrive.
Lovely squares, Patricia. I love the texture this pattern gives. It will be fun for little hands to explore.
Oh YAY!! I have been hanging out all month to see if you would make some of these in the CoM, Patricia. :)) (no pressure...lol)
They look FAB in this colour!! Thank you, thank you!!
They will add much cheer and texture to a blanket, especially if they should land in a Chrissy blanket. :))
