My poor neglected blog... Ha!
I've had a multitude of reasons not to blog... For a while I lost my perfect purple camera. New internet provider that wasn't really providing! A new granddaughter has to be given days... it's my duty to kiss those cheeks!! And on top of all that, the little corner where my computer lives is like a sauna with this heatwave!! No time needs to be spent there dripping hot for a blog!
And... on top of all those excuses, I am learning to crochet.... I couldn't do it so I was consumed with determination and every waking minute was spent trying to get it right... I have actually cracked it now. With a lot of help from PM Pam, Farmer Lynda, Longport Lynda, Monday Judy and My Mum Gwynneth... yes, every one of them has tried to help me, I think I have Crochet-Lexia!!!
So a few quilty pictures for you...
|Gail is first up with her fabulous and finished kiddie play mat.. |
Toot toot toot Gail
|This is the back... no fabric has been wasted and all those little left over blocks have been incorporated too. Well done Gail, it is a lovely quilt... perfect for gifting.|
|Gosh, this is from a couple of weeks ago. A lady came to make the beginner cushion. Annette had a great day learning lots of top tips as she wasn't really a beginner, she just thought she needed to go back to basics.|
|Princess Jackie and a few other ladies went to a children's dressmaking workshop in Leek a few weeks ago and is now making dresses for all the little girls in her world. Such beautiful fabrics too!! I wonder where they are from?? ha ha|
|Gail's Twisted Heart is coming along very nicely... She's made a few of them over the years so, I'm just guessing, she might be an expert now... Don't tell her I said that!|
|A delicious dessert, Summer Berry Eton Mess|
