A Finish and An Anxious Wait

Drum roll please, the quilt is finished, YEAH!!

Here is a little look

002 

Oh my, look at those hearts, I haven’t done hearts before

003

004

Okay so I am only showing you the best bits, I’m not that stupid!!!

Here is me trying to look all professional but it was so windy had to give up in the end, the line kept moving in the wind every time I tried to take a picture.

008

So had to resort to my better half (well so he keeps telling me) holding the quilt for me.  This was the best picture I could get in the house.  I did it with Moda Civil War Crossings 2 charm packs and as there wasn’t quite enough I added a few prints from my stash , did you hear that “my stash” LOL my stash being one drawer of fabric, but it sounded good didn’t it!!!

And the anxious wait?     My little man has had an operation this morning, to remove 2 tumours that were coming out of his bottom (eewww I know) we took him this morning at 8.30am and had to stay with him while the nurse gave him a pre-med as he was so stressed (him and me both!!) he cried and cried and cried when she put the needle in (oh okay I will admit it…..him and me both!!).  Pleased to say he is back home now, still a bit drowsy and wobbly.  We aren’t out of the woods yet, the tumour has been sent off for analysis and the operation could make him incontinent – only time will tell, fingers and everything else crossed that he is okay.  So, now he is back with me safe and sound I can get on with some sewing.

Here he is looking very sorry for himself.  “Oh Mum how could you do this to me!”

Lady is keeping well  away from him with that “bucket" on his head, I don’t blame her, it’s really painful when he hits you with it!!

That’s it for today from a mild, sunny but very windy little corner of France.

Makin’ New Friends

Today I received a couple of charm packs through the post, I sent for these before I started this blog, to make something Christmassy………..how appropriate that I chose this one  called “Makin’ New Friends”  by Deb Strain for Moda – little did I know!

002

Also want to say a special “Thank You” to one of my new friends,  Diane at Sideroad Stitcher who has helped me and encouraged me to start this blog (hope I have got the link right Diane!),  she has also blogged about me, so thanks to her, I am not talking to myself anymore!!  Thank you Diane x

A Cold and Frosty Morning

Brr it was cold this morning, so what to do today, oh I know sewing.  I know I said I was going to finish my quilt, and I did do a little bit more of the binding but......there was this material that was just calling out to me

It kept saying to me "make a table runner out of me"  so how could I refuse!

Here is the (nearly) finished runner, the corners need cutting off then it needs quilting and binding (oh no, not more binding).


Not sure what to do about the backing but think I am going to use the same coral and maybe use one of the flower patterns for the binding.

My First Post!

Well I've done it....never done a blog before but.... here goes.  Just hope I have something interesting to tell everybody!  I have only been quilting for around 6 months so I am very much a newbie and learning everyday so this blog won't be a place to learn new techniques etc, but perhaps other newbies may like to drop by and we can share our ups and downs, and if nobody drops by I guess I can bribe my family and friends to become followers LOL.

I am just adding the binding to my second quilt, will post a pic when it's done - oh that's if I can work out how to do it on here......

Got to go hubby just brought some sweeties in and he will eat them all if I don't take some off him!

Bye for now

Hugs Linda x
