A sneaky peek and some owls

Zali's little name owls are all finished and ready to be strung together. They were very easy to make and I am rather pleased with them. The hardest part was trying to find some matching buttons for the eyes.
And here is a little sneaky peek at a wall hanging I am nearly finished. I have been stitching the blocks for a while now and finally got them all done so was itching to get them sewn together. They are surrounded by little squares of fabric and I only stitched one in upside down! (I did unpick it and put it the right way round)
It still had to be quilted and the binding put on and then I will reveal all!
The story book print from thepoppytree (etsy) arrived and it is as lovely as I hoped it would be. We also got a bonus card and bookmark and a book label in the parcel.
We (Mr Fish and I) are going away this weekend to Mission Beach for a 10th wedding anniversary holiday. We have not been away on holiday except to visit relatives since I don't know when and we are really looking forward to a little break and a sleep in. Nanny and Poppy are kindly looking after the fish for us and they should have a great weekend at their house.

  2. Oh I can't wait to see that wall hanging - it looks so beautiful!
    Enjoy your weekend away - indulge - you really deserve it, oh it will be bliss!
