Daisy Cottage

I saw this little cutie at our stitching day last year with Gail Pan, Leanne Beasley of Leannes House and Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches.

This is the Daisy Cottage pattern by Gail Pan. This was included in the Saturday projects, but as I went on the Sunday, I received a different project. 

I loved it so much I recently purchased it (from Patchworks Plus) to make tablerunners for my mum and mother-in-law for Mothers Day. 

Unfortunately, I didn't finish my mum's on time but will give it to her in two weeks for her 79th birthday instead. 

I purchased this cute Robyn Pandolph fabric and Cottage Garden Thread - Dog Rose,  from my LQS, The Quilters Patch.
My mother-in-law seemed to like her gift.

Petit Coussin

Orange Daisy produced a range of French themed stitcheries a while ago now. I really can't wait to put them altogether in a quilt. 

 In the meantime, I have used one of them for this cushion to be sent up to Far North Queensland. Its for my cousin who is turning 60. She is going through an enormously rough time battling bone cancer and I can't wait to see her in a couple of weeks. (I hope she doesn't read my blog as I only sent it today). 

The fabric is from Bari J Designs and I think the line was called Paris Apartment. My original thought was to have different fabrics on the front and back however I'm so glad I decided to stick with the one design. 

I hope this brings a little smile to my cousin's face on her birthday.
