Went to see the lovely display of 12 x 12 inch rhyme quilts at Midsomer Quilting Chilcompton yesterday,it's on until 21 st December and well worth a visit if you're in the area. Here is my 12 x12.It's from a 1944 book of my hubby's called Rhymes without reason by Mervyn Peake. It goes like this ;

It makes a change.

There's nothing makes a Greenland Whale Feel half so high-and-mighty

As sitting on a mantlepiece In Aunty Mabel's nighty

It makes a change from Freezing Seas (Of which a Whale can tire)

To warm his weary tail at ease Before an English fire.

For this delight he leaves the sea (Unknown to Aunty Mabel)

Returning only when the dawn Lights up the Breakfast Table.midsomer quilting exhibition.

Feel for you Mandy,as I have had to do it many times with cats,( it doesn't get any easier) but you done the most kindest thing for him, I don't know if he was old but you would have had lots of happy times with him ,as others say they are our babies and part of the family.But the kindest gesture is to put them out of their misery and pain at the end.

thinking of you love Liz x

Sorry my reply to you is late Sylvia, yes Claire is a lovely lady and am sure you will enjoy doing the workshop with her. I've seen a book on bowls but nothing like Claire's. Personal taste know ,but I do love the flowers!!

Take care love liz x

Thank you Sylvia for contacting Claire about the bowls. I went to the quilting shop again today and saw her there,she told me you had contacted her.

Claire is such a lovely lady and has worked hard on her patterns,so good that we don't abuse the system and copyright by sharing.

03/11/2015 20:16:43

Yes Margaret me and my best friend Sue with our bowls!!

Sorry Sylvia the patterns are copyrighted but you can get them from Claire, just email her from her blog or website. She does pack with fabrics for sunflower, poppy ( we done) poinsettia and another.

They really are not that difficult, we made one at group,as I said I  finished the little one and made the other next day so not long really.

midsomer quilting workshop bowls 014.jpgmy bowlsI went to Midsomer Quilters in Chilcompton near Radstock on Sunday and done a workshop with Claire Passmore on Fabric bowls. Mine is the purple one . Claire so inspired me that I came home finished the baby one, then the next day made the 2nd bowl.

They are so nice to do and so effective,you can use different colours top and bottom and turn them as I have for bowls

Hi Angela, I do feel for you, when is the baby due? My son and partner are expecting in March and she has a heart condition which they are not sure if the baby may have too,they are monitoring her and all ok so far,but it is a worry.

Aren't scans lovely though to be able to tell us so much about the unborn child.

We don't know yet if it's a boy or girl but it's health and the health of mum so much more important.

Take care x

My Dad and mums side of the family both tall,so guess that's where I get it! Was horrid when I was younger but many more tall people around now. I always got you'll have to put a brick on her head to stop her growing,or whats the weather like up there?

Have a good weekend with your daughter Myra.
