Another quilt for PNG

Gina has been doing so well organising baby quilts and wraps for little babies in PNG.  In fact it's all become so big, it now has its own blog, the Patea PNG Quilt Collective.  An extremely interesting and worthwhile project.  I am very happy to use some of my stash to make quilts for these babies.  Here's a top I made in a spare hour yesterday, out of scraps in my stash.
Remember Max.  He's the little sweetheart I rescued from a neighbour's window ledge in the Christmas 2011 floods here in northern Melbourne.  They never did want him back, so he is now my father-in-law's dog.  He's staying for awhile and has decided my barrel of violets is a great place to nap in the garden - he is not supposed to do this!
When I took my little quilt top outside to get a picture, where did I find Maxie? Lucky I love him so much.

Do you love pin cushions?  I can't resist them.  So if you would to see a few (or a lot) pop on over to Madam Samm's blog Sew We Quilt and follow all the links on the Pin It pin cushion blog hop.

My love affair with crochet continues

and how could you not love this granny heart bunting.  The pattern and tutorial are very kindly shared at Cherry Heart Boutique.  Here is the LINK.  Enormous thanks to Sandra.

    Lovely to see Max so happy. I am so pleased somebody wanted to love and keep him!
