I am feeling much better, just waiting for everything to clear away so I can start trying again. That’s supposed to be the fun bit, right?
My hubby has been great, baby H has kept me occupied and busy. My mum has been there to listen if I need her (aren’t mum’s great?) I have been busy on a quilt, which has helped, as I go into my own little world when sewing. When my mum was over, we went to a craft fair that I had tickets for and I got some lovely material. Four different kinds, but they all go really well. The thing is it is green and I don’t usually go for green, but I must be getting old as I am starting to like it. (Had a birthday by the way, but wasn’t in the mood to celebrate it, but it means that I am getting older. I won’t say how old, but my mum knows…)
Any way here is the quilt, the photo’s aren’t great as the light has been really naff now it has got cold.
I thought I would show you the close up first, just so you can see just how colourful and bright the fabric is. You see why I fell in love with it?
I really need to take a better picture of it.
I did stitch in the ditch quilting and I am really pleased with it, the back looks as good as the front. If I may say so myself.
And one more for good luck…
Its up for sale on ebay if you want to go and have a look. It was going to be part of a set. I was doing a bumper and pillow to go with it and then changed my mind, so the bumper is a similar quilt and believe me it wants to be a bumper. It has been doomed from the get go. Its telling me to let it be a bumper, but I am saying NO, you will be a quilt. There have been lots of ripping, but it is finally getting there. It has kept me more busy than the original quilt
