It has been a long time since I worked on this
blog, I've almost forgotten how. I had a big birthday
at the beginning of the year and haven't been well
since. The dreaded lurgy took over my whole system
and continued until this week. I'm back to my sewing
and still trying to finish projects, far too many for
comfort. We visited Uttoxeter show in April, not
the roaring success it should have been maybe
because of the weather or the timing. Needless to
say money was spent and new projects started
resulting in another pile of ufo's.
|This quilt has been made by Val, I think its for her sofa|
to save from head marks,( I hope I'm right)
|These are the beginnings of a wall hanging|
by arty Beryl, stitched onto velvet samples.
Using many techniques as per usual for Beryl.
|As these pics have been taken over quite a period|
this cushion could well be finished by now.
Margaret has been working on this, a prototype
cushion from a previous flag quilt made by Annie pie.
|Joey has just started to quilt with us, this is a cushion for|
one of her grand children.
|The ladies have been knitting Innocence hats, till last week they|
had made 200. Also 200 at Christmas. each one gets 25p
for the charity.
|This doll will possibly be finished by now, another gift|
for a little girl in the far east. Chris was on a mission
to complete before her next visit some time now.
|Paper pieced ie:-stitch and flip onto a4 portrait way. Cut in 2|
length ways and the plain colour stitched to form a tube.
Then cut into triangles. Magic.
|Uttoxeter charm purchase Kaffe Fasset, this will|
be a charity quilt.
|and again this time a Robert Kaufman set, really|
|This was a small plastic bag of scraps from Linus stand.|
The cost £3-00. As you must know by now, some one
elses scraps are always desirable( as if we haven't
enough of our own)
|A variation from a recent quilt book, using all scraps.|
I empted a draw to make this. Mostly the fabrics left
from previous quilts.
|Another lap quilt made from scraps from other quilts, almost|
finished just the hand sewing to do. That means the last
6 quilts are all mine to finish.(besides all the others that are
hanging on the bedroom door.)
