Beach Dreamin'...

good morning to you...
i'm linking up with quiltstory today!


i am seriously goin' to have to go beach trippin'!

nancy @ a gardner's cottage sent me these georgeous aqua fabrics...
i've been beach dreamin'
walking in my imagination through cool rainforests
day dreaming under trees of falling leaves!

the fabric used in these is quite fine
so "starfish" is lined with cream cotton

and "waves" has a layer of fleece and then a backing of cotton
then has wavey stitching to hold the layers together...

random waves

if you look closely you will see
a large machine stitched starfish on the front of "starfish"...

buttons on the back...

these two will be joining the others
and given to flood affected people here in queensland...

currently made & collected...

43 hand made cushions
hip hip hooray!

thank you everyone!!

now kara just wants to say hello...

so..a big 'hi' from kara...

enjoy a terrrific tuesday,

i should finish collating one of the surveys today...
