Over the last year I have won two blog giveaways from what has become a good friend - a young Mum called Chavah Kinloch all the way in my home country of New Zealand. She is so talented, and I am so lucky to have two of her paintings in my home. I wanted her to know that I was truly thankful, so I made her a couple of quilted goodies!
She received them a few days ago and blogged about them HERE. This is the picture she posted on her blog...
And here are some I took before sending them off to the other side of the world...
Chavah has a 'thing' for crowns, so of course I had to go with that. I made up a crown design, appliqued it, then quilted it, turning it into a cushion cover. I quilted some words around the outside so her kids could have some fun figuring out what they say! I loved the crown so much when I first designed it, that I used it on THIS project...
I also did one of my monogram letters for her daughter's room, a letter V. Chavah had mentioned on her blog that they were redoing her dauther's room, and that purple and yellow would be prevalent. That worked out well since I had already done the crown in purple and yellow. I had to - I mean, the crown of course had to be yellow/gold, and purple is the color of royalty! I even asked for your opinion way back HERE. I know, I know, these have been a long time coming!
I'm just glad that they were well received, and now I can look at her beautiful paintings in my home and feel good that I've given, as well as received, some art.
You are so clever Jo! And that Queen Bee cushions is sooo stunning! I really can't rave enough about your creations. They're so well made and the colours, designs and patterns are perfect. I can see great things coming your way. Thank you so much for your friendship and the amazing gifts. I love them.. and you :D. xx
Just pretty DARN CUTE girl!!!
