Mary Holly got a new home!

 This here is Mary Holly in her first house, made by her mommy Samm. Thank you so much for sending her to me, she is absolutely adorable and I love her cupcake dress! The picture below is her in her new house where she can watch me sew and cut fabric.
Samm is a wonderfully talented lady. She got us all excited about mug rugs and now she's making tea cozies. Did you know she's also the author of "I Want It All", a book based on "thinking about food in a natural way". She and her husband are registered nutritionists and have written a fantastic book that has secrets on how to lose weight the healthy way. I have started so many different diets that have all failed. Hopefully this will be the one. Thanks Samm for the nice gifts. 
 I just finished the quilting on this t-shirt quilt. I used my favorite panto Debb's Swirls.

 I'm busy squaring up the quilt. What a small space to work with! This area is not only my sewing table but it's also my cutting and Go cutter table.
 I have a pretty large dining room table but I'm too lazy and pressed for time to take my cutting boards all the way downstairs. It has it's ups though... I can only make one spot a mess at a time.

 The backing has a red fabric with white hearts and its leftovers were used for the binding.
Happy Quilting,
Millie and Mary Holly!

Die pop is baie oulik. Sy gaan jou nog baie glimlaggies bring.
Liedlike t-shirt quilt. Hou van die vis/haai prent in die quilt.
Ek weet hoe jy voel oor die klein spasie. Ek moet materiale sny op ons kombuis toonbank en doen die stikwerk op die eettafel. Alhoewel ons 'n lieflike ruim woonstel het, is daar egter nie enige ander ideale plek nie. Ek moet ook erken dat ek nog nie 'n kwilt tafel vir my gekoop het nie...

Oh my goodness, you are the lucky one to receive Mary Holly, she is so darling! Is there nothing Samm cannot do?

Great job on the T-Shirt Quilt, I would have a hard time quilting on T-Shirt material, but you sure did not!!
