Yes please - I have really missed swaps!

Lovely quilts etc! This is a super quick quilt I made last month for a little boy to use with his wheelchair. Miss helped choose the pirate and sailing fabrics but somehow, my stash of those fabrics hasn't really decreased...I used the serpentine stitch on my machine to mimic waves.pirate.jpg

Congratulations Maria (and DH!) Hope everyone is now fully recovered.

Those are some good ideas, Maria. For Christmas, I gave my DH a gift bag with 25 small presents inside, ranging from a bar of chocolate to a bottle of his favourite tipple. Nothing major, just fun. The problem is that he then said he'd kept the wooden numbered tags for me to reuse so I'll be on the look out all year now for new ideas.

I've been very quiet here recently I know but I have been lurking. Pleased to report that my surgeon was happy with my progress one year on from my mastectomy. Life is slowly returning to normal, but usually means I'm pretty shattered by dinner time. Trying to concentrate on my UFOs but have somehow or other also made a few new quilts too.

I used a sheet for the backing and was quite surprised when we laid it on our king sized bed as to how big it had turned out. The binding was cut from the excess sheet when I trimmed up.back of friendship quilt

This one had been layered up for a couple of years, awaiting quilting. The centre was a half jelly roll, the hearts were from here, sent to me when I was having a bad time with a pickle of a miss and she added a heart too. Then I added some charm squares miss gave me, a pack of fat eighths I couldn't resist at my first time at Duxford, and the green fabrics are from a swap. I used perle cotton to big stitch quilt. It was really quick, about 5 weeks off and on and inbetween the rest.friendship quilt

This one was made over the New Year, with the leftovers from the star quilt and a few added fabrics which have a flying theme so will probably end up with DD1. This was another magazine pattern, about 50" square.flying 2017

I've been sewing like a maniac for the last 6 weeks, making the most of DH being home to do chores I think. These are some of them - no idea where the other photos are...

The star one was made with a pack of fat quarters DH gave me for xmas 2015 - saw the pattern in October and replaced the hearts with stars. It's 60" square so a nice topper on our king size.

Alison, I also didn't reply to your email for the same reason as the others. I have very much appreciated the hard work both you and Katy (and to begin with Jan as well) over the years. It's lovely having squishies arrive and the anticipation is wonderful! I have several "birthday" quilts in daily use, as well as one half hand quilted and another one ( from this year!) in the planning stage for when I can sew again.

Rosemary, I'd be delighted to take part in 2017 so will PM you now.

Hi, I have just had an email giving me 2 complimentary tickets to next week's show as a competition prize. Sadly, it's too far for me but I'm happy to email them to someone to print out and use. First come, first served!

Might be of interest - found this while surfing the web earlier. Possibly a chance to relove someone else's hard work.;q=quilt;q1=Household;show_all=products;x1=secondary_cat_1&gid=&owner=

Spending my morning catching up on here, while DH and miss are busy downstairs putting the furniture back now that the redecorating is finished. (Plus the all-important reconnection of the tv and other technology!) The wind is blowing outside so it's nice to be snug indoors but we'll be heading out later as miss has an invitation to a birthday party at a tapas bar, completer with flamenco lesson.

I'm slowly getting back to normal, whatever that is, and my fingers are improving after someone recommended a vitamin B-100 complex supplement. Not quite back to sewing but at least I can now knit! However, I have been spending lots of time blog hopping and now have a huge wish list of projects....

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Stay safe and warm everyone. x

Welcome, Marie! This group has been a major part of my life for at least 8 years, with friends that mean a lot to me, even if I have never met most in person.

Brenda, that verse is so true.

I often don't have yardage in my stash but could happily provide 2 x half width 2 1/2" strips from fat quarters.

I'm so sorry to read about Juliet. Her quilts were just gorgeous.

Winnie, just relax please and take things easy! (Says the woman who' still thinks she can run round like crazy...!)

I've had a lovely day today. I finally managed to take miss to her monthly class at an agricultural college unit, a round trip of 80 miles so the furthest I've driven since January. Apart from the animals, of course, it was lovely to see a new group of children gel together after a very quiet start. And to see them take part and appreciate the two minutes silence to mark Armistice Day in the common room with everyone else on site.
