The first block of the Rowdy Flat Library Quilt.......
Like I really needed to start another project Duh! I hope there are quilting stores in Heaven (I'm hoping to go there) coz I'm going to need all of eternity and then some to scale my WIP mountain.
I must admit I haven't stitched much in all the weeks I've been missing. Actually the fact I haven't sewn much is the reason I've been missing. There are only so many cat and chicken photos I can bore you all with and even I'm sick of the sound of my own whinging.
Still..... things might just be looking up. The party put a needle back in my hand and guess what.... I liked it. I had fun. I quaffed my share of vino collapso and munched my way through a mountain of root vegetable crisps. So what if I eventually felt sick..... I was happy as a pig in poo (being polite).
Now for a bit of a general catch up.
I'm showing you this photo of Chris and Sally to prove to you that the sun does shine in Scotland.....
I love it.... I covet it. Is that a sin? It looks just perfect for my conservatory. I can't believe she refused to leave it with me. Some friend eh! (just kidding Sal)
Chris caught the circle bug too...... this is her proudly displaying her first batch.....
She's got over 100 done now. Yep... she's addicted.
Kitty visited for a weekend.... she arrives every time she needs a hair cut. Sadly she doesn't trust me to style her locks. Perhaps I shouldn't have shown her the pudding basin......
Hand piecing is so relaxing.
Not a lot of progress but better than nothing.
A few weeks ago I took on the role of Chicken Nurse. Here I am
