It's been a hectic few days, with various odds and ends to keep us busy. On Saturday we went to visit number 2 son and his partner in Brighton. I took a picnic lunch with us to have in their flat - cheaper for us and definitely cheaper for them! It was good to catch up with them both.
On the sewing front I've been slaving away finishing all the blocks for my BOM that I started doing last year and gave up after about seven months. Quite a lot to do, as some months had more than one block, and there were filler blocks to do as well. I'm still not sure about it, the colours mostly, but it's growing on me. I've decided to quilt it in 4 quarters and then join them afterwards. Here's the first lump, layered up and pin basted (the pale colours are a bit washed out in this photograph)-
I've decided to hand quilt this as I have no idea how to go about machine quilting it. I haven't any thoughts for hand quilting either, come to that! Any suggestions?
I've also finished a couple of stitcheries BOMs - Once Upon a Time (Capricorn Quilts) and Veranda Views (Willowberry Designs).
My Rapunzel has red hair, since I didn't have any yellow wool! I've made a couple of small things too - a water bottle cover,
Thank you to everyone who commented on my last posting, it was great to receive so much encouragement. I'm now off shopping to buy some ingredients to try out a few new recipes. Let's hope they work out, there've been too many less than average meals lately. Next time I'll show you a picture of my new 'granny trolley' that Christopher bought for me!
