A small gift

I made this one evening last week as a gift to a good friend

I needed to just quilt something!!
 Its just a little holder to put on the table

Above was the correct side...sewn with Gold Silk yli 100
Her daughter told me orange was her mother's favorite colour!

 I had forgotten my trade mark  - a quilted Ladybug ..so I drew and painted one on.
My friend liked this side so much..she says she will frame it - this side up.
The Ladybug this way may have started something new
The best thing was - it didn't take long to complete.
And another gift that was given to me by one of my lovely patients....
Tra la..
A chocolate ladybug - just for me... Felt a bit strange actually eating it...
but it was yummy!!

On the Frame

Now have my third quilt on the frame... 
This one is mine, so if I do something wrong ...my problem.  
Thinking about what to do here.
My Bernina 820 is away getting a service, so this will be ready when I get it back,
Hopefully by the end of next week.
Looking at the quilt on the photo here.. I am wondering if I have 'mussed' up the borders!
Should have just put the white on and THEN a red border to finish.
There are those odd white squares in the corners!!
Never mind - its all practice!

Hope I have put it on correctly - in the right order.. I watched a video as I went...

Back to the DWR... but slow progress there.

We are really busy here with life in general, so not very much of anything being accomplished.
