Nearly finished and New stuff....

I've just about finished the "Matryoshka Doll Quilt". I just have to do the label for the back.
Here it is "mid stipple"!
I had some left over strips from the quilt so I made this cute little zipper purse.
If you look closely at the zipper pull you may see an angel....
These are some fabric covered canvases that I finished off the other day.
I have used Rachel Ashwell's "wildflower" fabric along with some pretty pink ribbon and roses....
I found these frames this morning and had to put some of my all time favourite fabrics in them. They will all be for sale at Our Shabby Cottage and My Shabby Cottage soon....
(except for the quilt!)
What are you crafting today?

OMG... where do I start Kathryn? The quilt - absolutely fabulous; bag, canvases and frames - stunning. The fabrics are just so pretty and feminine.

Today I am working on several canvases - all different styles which makes it 'interesting'.

Please tell me, this was not ALL done in a day. My I feel so shameful. Some days I work with lighting in my hands and other days i'm happy to get a pillow done.

YOUR QUILT is breathtaking. I love how you laid it out in no particular order and went with free form. I love brave design. How are you getting your stippling done? On a longarm? Gorgeous. Just Gorgeous.
