A mini quilt ...or two....

I received a mini quilt in the post all the way from arrived on Friday, wrapped in tissue paper and tied with  bow. Beautiful...
What was inside the parcel was even more lovely.....

Look at the tiny pieces...
It came from Lynette in California, so thank you so much Lynette, I am really delighted with this lovely quilt which must have taken ages to sew.

I have recently designed a tiny quilt to put on my webshop....

Great fun and quick to make!! 

And finally, I hope all you mums out there enjoyed a good Mothers Day!  It happened to coincide with Mr RC's birthday, so a good day was had by all!

Quilt complete and lots of new comments

Well, having decided to leap into blogland and link up with the Small blog meet with Lilysquilts I have had lots of new comments which make for a very happy running chicken!!  Always nice to chat with fellow quilters and sewers, so thank you Lynne for organising this.

Yesterday, a quilt for Cupcake Cottons shop was completed and despatched.  Just had a call from them to say that it has arrived and they LOVE it!!!  It was lovely to quilt and thank you ladies for sending it to me!   Enjoy your cake this afternoon!
 The quilt was done using a combination of computer aided designs and freehand work.

Happy St Davids Day

As a child in South Wales, we always looked forward to this day!  We always had an eisteddfod where there were singing, dancing and poetry competitions and best of all half day off school!!
Hence the significance of the running chicken with the daffodil, the national flower of Wales!!

I have just linked this post to a small blog link with Lilys quilts, so hopefully lots of visitors to wish a Happy St Davids Day!!
