Black & White

I spent most of my creative time this week working on my Black & White quilt.
I used black poly velvet in strips between the squares and around the edge.

Side 1

I'm quite pleased with how it has turned out so far......
its not finished though......I hope to work on each of the squares to hand quilt around the flowers but that can be done as and when the mood takes me :)

Side 2

Now it sits on my sofa and I can cuddle under it in the winter evenings.

Just in time it seems as I think I'm coming down with a head cold and in need of a little comfort :(
sniff sniff

on another black and white note this is a little Zebra I bought last year for Charlotte's Christmas, she has now outgrown it
 (catching her toes under it on Monday while trying to have a go! :( poor wee thing)


Hes a lovely little wooden rocker, I bought him from a lovely seller on EBay.
now he needs a new home.

cute isn't he!
I was always going to fill the name in


but never got around to it. It kinda suits him anyway
So Clark is heading on to gumtree to find a new home, and
yesterday Charlotte and I went for a drive to collect a new rocker



needless to say shes delighted with him! she can just about climb up all by herself and as you can see, has had lots of fun already..... thanks to Gumtree, my favourite place at the moment.
The best thing about it is, it's free to list and sell, meaning the sellers gets to keep 100% Thats good for everyone :) I know its been around for a while now but I think its growing and more people are using it everyday worth a look for those who like a bargain.

Indeed, Charlotte loves her new rocking horse! Looks quite comfy too! Never heard of Gumtree, must check it out.

Thanks for stopping by my blog--looking forward to see your interpretation of 'my' fabric idea--the 'size stretcher'!!
