And finally here is a quilt I finished way back and never had time to photograph it properly. It's made from panels intended for a soft fabric ABC book. I incorporated some chenille strips, blue linen and natural linen fabric patches with my little girly print. I think this would look fab both as a quilt on the bed or a playmat. I did the stitch in the ditch slack quilter method with log cabin joins at the corners. I must get around to making the mitred corners one day.

To Market, To Market - A Beautiful Day
So the Olive Tree Market was on the 7th of March and for once the weather was beautiful. The markets have been plagued with terrible weather so it was a welcome relief. My new products at this market were my new tote bags, which I'm loving and toting around. Who knew short straps actually save your back and shoulders. For eons I've been carrying around a sling bag and it has been pulling my shoulder out in all different directions and voila short straps have solved my shoulder woes. An illustration I did a few posts back has been reincarnated as a print on bags, wrislets, skirts and pillows. Above it is shown on a little girl skirt. I'm loving this print and will probably find it's way on a quilt very soon.
