I don't know why it is, but since my productive day last Wednesday, I just haven't felt like blogging. I've been doing various things - quilting my Strawberry Crush, visiting No 2 son in Brighton, visiting my sister-in-law, shopping, all the usual things - but just not blogging.
But I have made a very speedy quilt. My mother-in-law's health deteriorated rather rapidly over the last few days. Her lap quilt desperately needed washing but she was reluctant to give it up even for a few days, so I set to late on Saturday afternoon to make her another one. It had to be done quickly so I decided on a strippy quilt - I already had a jelly roll so it went together very quickly. I pieced the back from the last few strips and a few other 30s style fabrics I had and managed to finish the binding on Sunday evening. Then yesterday morning we heard that she was being taken into a local hospice, so we rushed over to visit and help out. I was so glad I'd pressed on and got it finished. The pictures are taken with my mobile phone so are not the best quality. She was pretty much asleep the whole time because of the medication, but I think she liked the new quilt a lot.
The weather's been lovely here over the past few days, sunny and warm but not hot, so we've been able to sit out and watch the tomatoes and courgettes grow. The strawberries are just about finished I think. Today I need to have a good tidy up, then finish quilting the Strawberry Crush and start on the borders. I'll be glad to get that one done.
