Welcome all 🙂
I think I should be welcoming myself back as well after a period of time when my blogging mojo just disappeared. I hadn’t really appreciated how long it had been until Lin from St Victor Quilts emailed me asking me if I was OK. Thank you Lin, I really appreciated your email and yes I’m fine.
Like many of you I’ve been busy making ‘secret’ things which still can’t be revealed but I will make sure I take some photos of each item before the wrapping process happens 😉
Back in October a dear friend got married. She has been a member of my ‘Ladies Wot Sew’ group from when it first started and so we got together and made her a wall hanging which was used as a Lectern frontal during the wedding. We didn’t leave her out of the sewing process, oh no! Everyone made at least one flower which seemed very appropriate as together we’ve been part of producing a couple of displays for our Church’s flower festival. We will miss our friend but wish her all the happiness in the world and hope she will visit when she can.
When my vicar saw the frontal he was delighted to see what he thought was a new piece of textile ‘decoration’ for the Church and, I think, was a bit disappointed to discover that our friend was taking it with her. So I set to and made a second version so future couples can have it at their weddings.
The second of my ‘Show and Tells’ is a heart wall hanging cum lap quilt which I saw on Pinterest and liked. It’s taken me a long time to finish as it kept being put to one side but after my new daughter -in-law saw it and liked it I was motivated to finish it and give it to her for her birthday, which was this week.
Bonnie Hunter over at Quiltville’s Quips and Snips has started her 2017 Mystery quilt instructions, after taking part last year I was hugely tempted to join in this year too especially after seeing the beautiful colours she’s chosen for her version. But although I’ve completed last year’s design, it isn’t quilted yet and perhaps I should concentrate on doing that first. I’m saving all the instructions though. I’ll content myself with watching everyone else’s creations take shape.
These seem to be the only photos I took of it, another reason to get it quilted so I can show you 🙂
Until I post again, take care.
