Work in progress

Here's my latest work in progress.  A quilt!

The Japanese floral will be the backing, with a two-tone herringbone front.

As I don't have a long-arm sewing machine, I'm going to have to hand-quilt this one.  Eeek.  That's a LOT of work.

Hopefully it'll be ready in 3 weeks.............  But I'm sure the person it's destined for won't mind if it's a little late :)

Lovely lavender

My house smells DIVINE at the moment.

I used to think these were so 'granny'.  Lavender sachets?  Ugh!  Once upon a time I wouldn't have been caught dead with these in my drawers.

And maybe they still are, and maybe I'm getting old; but maybe, just maybe, I'm learning more and more to appreciate the beautiful things in life.

Like your smalls smelling of lavender.

The girls {and a giveaway}

Meet the girls.

They're a fun bunch.  Down to earth.  Ready for action.  They enjoy their food too (note the lack of waistlines).

They're not perfect; but if you can look past their pigeon toes and stubby fingers their little faces are sure to put a smile on your dial.

Here's Pearl... she's bright and bubbly, and never lets a rainy day get her down.

And Phyllis...  she's sweet, and fun-loving.  And is always up for a 'cuggle' with the Rosebud.

Then we've got Gertie.  She's got a cheeky streak (you can tell by her smile), and loves a good practical joke.  But she's really a kind-hearted lady who loves to cheer you up if you're having a bad day.

And finally, here's Agatha, or Aggie for short.  Aggie's a hard worker and is always up for an adventure.

Aggie's looking for a new home.  If you know a little someone who'd be able to give her the love she's looking for, make sure you enter this giveaway!

All you have to do is:
1. 'Like' Wife-made on Facebook.
2. Share the photo of Aggie, that you'll find on the Wife-made Facebook page, with all your Facebook pals.

That's it!  I'll announce a winner Friday morning!

**Sorry, this giveaway is only open to Australian residents :)
