A bit of Catch-up

Well, I didnt last long with the ‘blog every week’ resolution.  I just seemed to get busy.  What was I doing……I’ll have to think about that.  Lets have a look at where I was last blog…..27th April! I can hardly believe that.  Where have the five weeks gone.  I went to Scotland as a surprise for my Auntie on her birthday.  Had a great couple of days, but not many photos. This very peaceful scene at the front of my cousin’s house where I stayed.2014-05-02 19.23.52

Then DH and I went to Donegal. This is a pic of the cliffs at Slieve  Liag (league). The weather was not great, but we had this cosy stove for the evenings.


A local church held a lovely quilt exhibition in our neighbouring town.  There were some beautiful quilts, and lots of inspiration.  This is something new for my neighbourhood, and was a great hit. Here are a few pics.2014-05-23 18.50.372014-05-23 17.55.002014-05-23 17.55.18IMG_1925I loaned my Scrappy Happy Spring.

Summer has brought new life to the lake in our park.  This swan had 5 babies and seemed to be waiting for the other 3 eggs to hatch.  Sadly, as I walked this morning I noticed the eggs still there, and the family gone to swim at the other side of the lake.

We also have a family of 5 goslings to add to the growing goose flock.2014-06-02 09.20.46I entered a quilt in the home industries part of our local agricultural show. The first show I ever entered.2014-06-07 17.06.04Am I just a little proud to be acknowledged.  This is the quilt that won.  It is not well displayed, as there is a window behind it.2014-06-07 15.44.01Th photo doesnt do it justice.

I will finish with a peek at something I have made for a competition.  I will show all after the judging is done.  I am getting into this Smile.2014-05-20 14.45.46

Finally, finally I bought Ricky Tims book and am in the process of trying this technique. More photos to follow.
