I hope this post finds you happy and well.
I have been absent without leave on here but it has been full on every day elsewhere. I have had lots of visitors the last 6 weeks which was lovely and lots of fun.
I did plan to get some batting and quilting and a few quilts from the UFO list finished , but!!!! It didn't happen. Not much sewing done so they are still waiting for me.
I have been getting some projects ready for when our sewing group starts back together on the 3rd February gathering some fabrics together.. Also I did a practice block for the English Paper Piecing class I will be starting. I have never used that method ever before and really enjoyed it. So I am looking forward to starting the quilt..
With the school holidays here I have had my sewing room taken over by my teenage grandchildren . 4 of them live around the corner from me and are always calling in and on my computer and looking in the fridge and pantry to see what they can find. I do love them coming I always have some baking done. 4 of them are bigger than me now but I still have 4 little cute ones.
Kristy Caleb and Jacob. Little Hugh is a cousin.
My friend Robyn called in with her quilt to show me .It is beautiful and her embroideries are lovely.
I also love these Christmas pot holders that Gudrun sent to me.Thank you kindly Gudrun. Hej ka"ra Gudrun xx
These are the fabric and colours I am going to use for my next quilt .
My first practice of the quick strip paper piecing technique .I just used some left over fabric for this block as a practice to get an idea where to place my colours for the pinwheel effect. I will be using the 6 fabrics above.
Enjoy your coming weekend blogging friends .Until next time .
