Another hot one today!!

I have been up to Gisborne and back today, had my hair done at Margs, our lovely mobile hairdresser does her magic and off we go again!! Of course when you are in Gisborne a visit to Patch n Quilt is a must and as always I came out with a bag of goodies...I have had the urge to do some more EPP and I wanted to do Stars and decided to use reproduction fabric....not my usual bright colours!!
It isn't like I don't have anything else to do!! Lol!! Maybe I just needed another hand sewing pick up and go project!

This doll pattern was on special so I thought I would try and make it for the sales table at the Seachange quilt show next month.

The tram lady is finished!! Yay!! (Well except she isn't mounted n her canvas from yet!)  I have to find the staple gun, I know it is here somewhere, just not sure where, probably with the mini iron I can't find either!!! She needs to be stapled on to the canvas and she is all done. I m very happy with her.
I had better go and check on dinner!
Happy sewing.

The tram and tram lady are just amazing, lots of time and hard work involved. I may have missed the reason you are making this - what will you do with the end result of this quilt Sue?

Wow! Sue! I love love love your tram lady. I just looked back through earlier posts and couldn't see it described how you made it. Was it from a photo? Did you paint the fabric yourself? How did you make the background?
