On the Saturday the ladies of The Fennel Shed opened an extra hour especially for us, so we had an opportunity to buy up those necessary fat quarters and metres of the very fabric we were looking for.
I have been beavering away at Safe Harbor, by Kaaren Johnston. I have the final border on, and plan to have it longarm quilted. This is the first time I have had a quilt LAQ. I am really looking forward to the finished article.
I have just found this in my drafts today 1st Jan 2015, so I will post before I do my NYpost.
I have become really lazy about the blogging. Sorry to those kind people who follow my almost nonexistant blog. I have continued to sew through the past 5 months. I completed a full size quilt and had it long-arm quilted. Safe Harbor is a design by Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt.
I tried something different and entered it in a competition. I didnt win, but my little quilt was ‘published’ with photos of all the other entries. I was chuffed to bits. I stuck in, this week and finished all the blocks for my Pondhouse by Lynette Anderson, which has been on the go for……..4?years.This is the last log cabin block. Yay! Only two borders to attach and I will be ready for quilting. I would like to attempt hand quilting, but it is sooo big.
I made table decorations for Christmas and two lovely flannel cushions for my favourite Auntie, oh, and a table runner for my cousin in Scotland. Yes, I have been busy. I tried a wool felt workshop, and got hooked enough to make a few Christmas gifts.
I want to wish you all a Happy New Year 2015.
Perhaps I will keep up with my blogging. That sounds like a maybe NY resolution. Bx
