Great pictures Rosemary. I couldnt make it this year so nice to see some of the quilts..

I have to agree with Eileen that the Best in Show is technically fantastic but not the most Woweeee!

Definitely going to try to go to FOQ 2019.

Well, I have just found this and feel like I must have been on Mars for the last couple of months.

I’m sad to see PP go and even though I subscribe to both PP and P&Q, I always felt that PP had the edge in both variety and it’s style. Let’s hope that P&Q goes forward with the best of both magazines.

I love quilting but do also enjoy projects that are smaller and include some stitchery aspects as well. I’m a massive fan of Lynette Anderson who makes lots of lovely little projects and I know she has a massive following in the uk.

I also love hatched and patched and jo colwill.

I have as much fun making book covers, needle cases and accessory items as I do making the quilts.

Well that’s my 2 penneth’s worth.

I’m loving all your creativity ladies. Very beautiful makes here.

I finished the following basket from a Lynette Anderson pattern. You make it from a steam basket and then you make some accessories to go with it....

Thank you all for your kind words ladies, it really means a lot.

Thank you as well for the lovely hug hearts that I received today in the post, a great surprise and I’m very touched.

I’m back onto the handsewing at the moment and I’m just following a Lynette Anderson pattern (of course) and will let you know how I get on.

Big hugs

Hello all,

I’m sorry to have been AWOL for a while. Since Easter we have been on a roller coaster here. David’s Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer and we lost him at the end of April. Since then we have had to sort out the funeral and start the probate process.

My stepdad who suffers with MND had a bad fall and has now gone into a care home where he can get all the support he needs. My Mum has been adjusting to life without him.

We are now just getting back into a routine and so I thought I would come and say hello. I hope you are all well and I will try and catch up with everything that has been going on.
