Tilda Zippy Pouch And FNSI

 
Our Tilda Lover's Club challenge this week
was a zippy pouch with a lace zip. 
I knew I had a lace zip in my stash somewhere 
and after a  lot of searching I found it. 
But when I did, it was a pale blue one
and not the cream I thought. After spending ages
 deciding which fabrics to use, I had to start again as the zip 
didn't go with my original fabric choice. 
So off I went and spent more time choosing fabric. 
This is Windflower Nutmeg from Tilda's Plum Garden range.
Thank you to Wendy for hosting us for Friday Night Sew-In.

Friday Night With Friends

 
On Friday I worked a bit more on my Tilda Christmas stitchery. 
I'm a bit late with my report as Friday night my phone 
started to die and couldn't take any photos. 
Saturday finished it off! 
So now I've got a new whiz-bang phone!
Thanks to Chez for hosting us for FNWF.

Easter Mini Quilt

 
Saturday afternoon I started making this mini quilt for my stand. 
I used some of my Tilda Happy Camper fabrics. 
They matched nicely with my felt rabbits. 
The design is by Bev at Flamingo Toes
I'm getting quite a collection of bunnies now that I have 
decided I will decorate for Easter each year!

An Easter Swap

   
We had an Easter Swap with the Tilda Lovers Club. 
You had to send a mug rug, a fabric vessel of some sort 
and something with a rabbit theme. 
My mug rug. I used a stitchery from 
Gail Pan's Patchwork Loves Embroidery Too. 
A fabric basket. 
For the rabbit theme, I made a needle case. 
The inside. 
A scissor fob to match. 
And a rabbit pin cushion. How cute is this! 
These are the goodies I received from Deb. 
The mug rug is reversible! 
The back.
 
I don't usually decorate for Easter but have decided I am going to 
from now on. In the past I have put these out. 
Michelle from Rag-Tag Stitchin' made me the cute rabbit bag. 
I looked through my blog and that was back in 2012! 
I've started collecting a few little rabbits. 
Have you been to Bed, Bath and Table? 
They have gorgeous Easter things! 
I need to make a mini quilt for my stand but that will be next year. 
Now do I do a stitchery one, an appliqued one or a pieced one? 
Decisions, Decisions!
