FINALLY CATCHING UP

I can’t believe I haven’t blogged for so long. I have so many different things to go on now this post could have you wondering what on earth I have been up to. Suffice to say I am on the case now and hope you haven’t deserted me. I will try to keep stuff together that needs to be together, but sometimes WORDPRESS takes over and I cannot control where it puts stuff when that happens. So off I go to sort the pictures right now.

First up I am putting on the pictures from my group’s meeting in OCTOBER – oh my – as I was ill Suzanne did the meeting for me and I have had great reports from some of the ladies on how she managed to do it all, here then are the pictures from that day – if by any chance I have already put them on in another post I apologise, but hey it’s always good to see things again don’t you think!

I made my own jelly roll and made a basic strip quilt, decided I didn’t like it as I thought it pretty boring, so chopped it up and made this instead, some close-ups follow.
