Monday's Show and Tell

A few months ago one of the ladies on a blog that I follow posted that she found a giraffe tea pot in a second hand shop. I told her that I had seen kettles like that several years ago but not recently. While in Brisbane last week I saw this lovely window display in The Tea Centre shop in Brisbane Arcade. Seems they are back in fashion!

I have been working hard on the Christmas quilt and have finally finished it. All the blocks are quilt as you go. Same with the outer border which I appliqued, stem stitched and then quilted before applying. I used 505 glue to attach the back. It made the final quilting and binding really easy. I used a flannelette sheet and a few pins to hold the quilt up while I sprayed the glue and smoothed on the backing half at a time. I will definitely be be using this method again.

Gluing the back on.
