Puffing away

The only work from today are some more puffs, as I spent most of the day doing errands (farmers' market), chores (laundry) and taking some girls out shopping as part of Sarah's best friend's birthday present. (Q: How long does it take two 9 or 10 YOs to decide whether or not to buy a particular skirt? A: about three times longer than you want to hang out in Woolworths.)
Anyway, here are some more puffs - two more on the brown background - one more with orange puffs, and one with mustard yellow puffs - the colour combo looks better in person than in the photo. Then I did some blue on pale purple, which I decided doesn't work as well as light on dark. Am also working on some purple on purple (darker background), which I'll share tomorrow or whenever they are finished. I'm having fun with these - I was only going to do the required number for the swap, but they are going a lot faster than I thought they would, so I think I'll do a few extra, as usual. Watch this space :)

Hi Kate

Just flew in to say thanks for your comment about my Kookie-Birds. Have enjoyed looking at your creations - seeing your puffs reminded me that I'd been shown how to make these the lady (quilter) was making flowers and put a button into the centers - I'd forgot *!* they look even better with beads inside them, bfn Annie
