Sunshine on a rainy day .......

.......  and my first completed item for Annie the Felt Fairy's 2011 Monthly Make Challenge

Fed up to the back teeth of rain, greyness and lack of sunshine I looked to my fabric stash for something to brighten my week up.  What better than yellow and orange ..... I chose a mix of vintage embroidered fabric and contempory plain/floral/gingham/stripe and I am calling this one Oranges and Lemons.

Hope it's brought you a little sunshine too x


  1. its lovely very cheery I love the swirly-ness of the embroidery

  2. That is really lovely, well done you and thank you for the 'sunshine' ;-)

  3. It's beautiful did you do all that in one month you are really good.
    I'm doing the monthly make too.

  4. Wow thats so beautiful - I'm not normally a yellow person but You've changed my mind - well done for doing it in a month - would take me about 2 and a half years :)

  5. What a lovely idea, I had never thought to use my vintage embroidery stuff in a quilt, yours looks really good, Thankyou

  6. Love the way that the vintage embroidery "dances" round this...... it's a joyous piece of work. :O))))
