Just a little bit more quilty fabric on my table today.
Annie found the mousey bits and bobs and now I just have to find a few more pieces to combine with them.
The pile on the right hand side will probably make a nice girly quilt.

Jo has blogged about them on her LillyBo Quilt blog.
It's wonderful to hear how they have been given to the poorly little ones at hospital in Liverpool by the CHICS group.

My latest finished quilt is below - I found the bright butterfly fabric and thought it would be perfect for a really cheery quilt and bag.
Of course I had to make a little fabric butterfly to pop in the pocket.

I hope you are all keeping cosy in this wild wintery weather.
I love the bright sunny days that go with the flurries of snow but that North wind is pretty chilly!!

Have a great week and thanks for popping in to see what I have been up to.
I will be round to visit as many desks as possible later.
Come over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in!

x Jo

I really love this quilt Jo, I feel quite guilty now for only making one. The mice are really cute and will look lovely on a quilt as does the girly fabric off to the right. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #23

Have loved all your quilts Jo but the butterfly one is a favourite. Must be steam coming of your, and Annie's, sewing machine the rate you two are going. All in a wonderful cause.

I just wish I was making quilts too. What you have all done is wonderful. Sadly,after Mum died, I got rid of The great majority of my fabric and my machine has only come out for very essential mending jobs. Hope all goes well with the latest creations. Thank you for your visit and your good wishes. xx Maggie #9

I admire you making these quilts and the little bag and toy that goes with it! I am not sure I will ever make one - sewing is really not my forte!
Lots of hugs,
