Quilt top finish

This has taken me ages.....life just got in the way lately with work and family stuff......and it's only the top done!

I'm not happy about where the new 'beast' is located.....in the main kitchen -living room area. I though it would be good not to tuck myself away upstairs but now I'm not sure. At least then I could just close the door on it instead of putting everything away when we want supper or just because other people living here(husband) don't really want the ironing board in plain sight.


Or I should stop making excuses and get on with it! ( posted by new app on ipad so see how this goes)


Quilt top finish

At last this quilt top is done. Life just seems to have got in the way of finishing this or was it the heat......just trying out the blogsy app on ipad so see how it goes

Bit late to the party......

but the tour came through our small town on its last leg in the UK and it was AMAZING! All the schools were shut and even though it was a Monday, I think most people must have had the day off.......the crowds were enormous.

A year off from blogging for no particular reason. I regret it a bit because its a nice diary of events but hey ho!

Christmas came and went.....gifts made and given.

One child started her dream job in the corporate world (scares the hell out of me!) and the other just finished uni and is job hunting.....not an easy task at the minute.Where have those 3 years gone!

bit of embroidery...well a lot

still playing with fabric .....I took the plunge and bought my very first sewing machine....up to now its been a 25 year old Brother, belonging to Sis.
Its a Janome 8900...I call it the beast and we're still getting to know one another.

a bit of hand sewing  for a  quilt along I'm taking part in on Facebook with Brigitte Giblin.

 and that's the spot where most of the hand sewing takes place.... when the english summer allows that is.

I've enjoyed reading all the blogs I like as always, ........its a great community  x
