I was asked what my favourite colour was at the last Quilt Set meeting, I of course said YELLOW, as that is and always has been my favourite. I realised I didn’t have a yellow quilt, so rummaged through my UFO’s and found one that is almost all yellow – well near enough for me and I have finished it. Very, very pleased with it too. So thank you to Tilly who asked the question. Oops, just realised I didn’t take a picture of it, so tomorrow that will come……  meantime I decided I would do another UFO and pulled out this one….

I have received some fabulous postcards lately from ladies in the swap group.Mind you a lot of these postcards appear to be either going missing or taking soooooo long to arrive we almost give up on them. I wonder if other groups have these problems?

    Glad someone else makes lists too. I’m great at doing that, just not so good at getting things done that are on the list 🙂 Looking forward to seeing the yellow quilt and the Geta one quilted. Sorry to hear that you are losing some postcards in your group. Why can’t they lose the bills as easily??
