a new love.....

the pictures are poor.......but I have a new love. 

Its in its early stages but choosing fabric, colours, cutting, and sewing have kept me going in the past month. These were taken with a borrowed and broken camera, youngest took mine on her travels and of course it is now broken! (how many I told you so's have I had to listen to about that!) 

On that subject youngest is now in Australia, Noosa....which she is loving. She is in regular contact so I cant ask for more than that and she having an absolute brilliant time.(have only had one sleepless night when she sent an email to her sister saying they were staying in a hostel with no other girls just a great bunch of Korean guys that didn't speak English....mixed dorms.....felt better when she moved on!)

 No sign of elderly P going home yet so this quilt obsession could get verrry expensive!!


  1. That quilt's looking gorgeous! When our youngest was on a gap year a few years ago, she sent a video email that showed her bungee jumping, sky-diving and zip-wiring across a canyon - hah, just what we wanted to see!! Abby x

  2. I do like your choice of colours and fabrics, hope it doesn't get too expensive!
    Glad to hear all is going well for your daughter and your sleep quota, most of the time!
    Take care

  3. I am crazy for fabric and have been collecting a stash to make a quilt. Your quilt will be beautiful! xxx

  4. You are making a great job of that! I really feel for you - and I will be glad when she is home for you! Sheffield will seem like just down the road! xxxx

  5. Aha you've caught the bug! Quilting is so satisfying. I just love the fabric and playing with it.
    Noosa is having beautiful weather at the moment, your daughter picked a great time to be here, and we just had the food and wine festival on the weekend.

  6. ooh that's lovely. I'm worried...very worried...
