Dee Dee was also a project for my FNWF but was not completed until now.
When she was sitting there on my sewing table waiting to be assemble l was not happy with the fabric l had chosen for her .... trying to use up scraps is challenging to say the least. Normally l would have a fabric in mind before l started a project but having to rummage through what l already had... well that is another chapter.
As it has turned out she came together and everyone has thrown her around the room and are very happy with the way she has preformed. lol A house full of Boys. Now Dee Dee is resting on my book shelf. Waiting for that special child to walk in and grab her.

l purchased the pattern from the Quilting Angel in Highfields last week. I wanted and needed to enlarge her as she is a Pin cushion in reality a pattern by the very talented Heather Bailey sewing patterns (mini pattern) Her real name is Henrietta Turtle. But l have re named mine for one of my many nieces the very beautiful Simone...as her nick name is Turtle, don't ask me why....as l really do not know.
All l need to do is add her eyes and "wellla". Made out of scrap fabric from my never ending scrap box. Lachlan is going to Brissy to hand her over. Sorry about the photo as l was in a hurry to post and could not get a good one inside at night.
