BACK AGAIN…

So nothing happened re the storm we were supposed to have had last night lots of lightning but nothing else, very strange no doubt our turn will come…

So back to my pictures, I left last night after loading all the pictures from my group but I am going to put the last few up again as I was unable to comment on them, so just bear with me folks….

Cute chicken made from Hexagons, I think it is a doorstop….

The chicken was kept in this bag, far too nice for it I think…

A fun strippy quilt made by Bridget, love this design….

Full quilt and a close up of quilt, sorry I cannot remember who made this one either, it looks very complicated so hat’s off to the maker….

This is the back of a quilt made by Annette, it was a BOM {Block of the Month} she purchased at the Festival of Quilts 7 years ago, she has finally finished it, she did ask me to quilt it for her but I said no as how else is she to learn FMQ?

Various bits and bobs I have been working on, if you hover over the picture you ‘should’ see what it is for….

 

My Grand daughter Rebecca came up for a day last week and sorted my fabric cupboard out for me, it was in a bit of a mess I can tell you but she had every box out and tidied it all up, labelled every box for me so I can see at a glance what is in that particular box, well, just look, I am thrilled with the outcome….

and the inside of the cupboard now looks lovely….

Thank you Rebecca xxxxx

MIXED BUNCH

As I once again haven’t been on here for a while I am just going to probably post all the pictures I should have put on here with possible captions, who knows. It’s if I remember folks….

This was a very old UFO I found to finish, I have as yet got to take a picture of the finished quilt……

This is a fabulous cross stitch picture of the lovely Audrey Hepburn done by my beautiful Grand daughter, Rebecca…..

I belong to several groups on Facebook, in this particular group you are asked/invited to make an FMQ Sampler of the lady who runs it designs, well, you know me I just had to change the layout, I do like to be different I cannot help myself, this is ongoing…..

 

When the dreadful tragedy happened in Manchester, a call went out for quilts, and I am thrilled to say some of the ladies in my own Facebook group stepped up and made the blocks – 99 of them – and we made a quilt together, so proud of the ladies…..

This is the finished Quilt ready to go to Manchester…..

I treated myself to some new fabrics, fabricsagogo, extremely helpful lady as I had no idea what I wanted but she helped me and I chose these…..

Finally as there are a lot of pictures to it, the showtime from my JUNE Quilt group’s meeting….. Enjoy

I will try to catch up with the rest tomorrow evening, it looks as though we are in for a storm so am shutting down pdq……

OH MY

Once again I am way behind with this Blog. At this rate I will have no followers left… sorry folks.

So the main thing that happened in May was my Grand daughter Rebecca’s 18th birthday, cannot believe she is now 18. So very proud of her. I must have a more up to date photo done of her.Rebecca's coke

June came in with a heatwave, it is just awful, well it is for me as I am not a lover of the sun, for those on holiday it is wonderful of course. Regardless of the weather, I have been busy quilting still, so many things I want to do yet but am finishing some UFO’s this year along with starting other stuff too, well you just cannot help yourself can you?

So what have I been doing??? I will have to come back tomorrow and tell you as I didn’t realise the time and have to pop off to bed right now, sorry. I will come back with lots of pictures for you to see tomorrow.
