The Weekender has come to a bit of a standstill. I keep reading the instructions but I'm sure it needs a zip to go in next. I need to have a bit of a think about zips before I pluck up the courage and then hopefully wonder what I was worried about. My other plan is to pick a few brains at the EMMQG on 1st June. Here are the panels. I'm very pleased with them.

While I was pondering on the zip(putting it off), a friend of mine had a lot of fabric and a 3rd birthday coming up. With this being her first quilt it could of been put in the cupboard for a long time. The fabric is lovely and I had a vision.

So this became this.

Its coming on lovely but has to go in the cupboard today as I'm off to Thomas Land with a very excited husband.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.

Everything seems a bit stop start on this blogging. I have had a fab holiday in Dawlish and recharged a few batteries. The seaside is so inspiring and I have come back with so many ideas to start. Due to the rain everything looked so green, I came back wanting to sew with green. I took a trip to Kisco and came back with red and a vision of a summer dress for Nancy. I might be able to grab a few minutes with a sketch book tomorrow and see what happens. In the meantime I also bought my zipper foot ready to press on with the weekender bag.

First Picture

There is nothing nicer than seeing your quilts being used and here are my two angels snoring away under one of my latest quilts. I've had this one on the go for about 2 years and this year I've made a promise to myself to complete all projects before starting a new one. However, in the words of Mary Poppins "Promises easily made and easily broken." I have just finished a baby quilt for Baby Abbie and I have to say its almost as beautiful as she is.

I think I need to work on my photography skills but I wanted to take a quick snap prior to giving it to her this morning. Its very fresh in real life. I'm very pleased with it.

Getting there

I am not sure if this is working and I am trying to get there but have had another technical failing and my camera has broke. Off for a new part on friday and then full steam ahead.
