Anyway, after only 3 days away from Blogland I feel very behind and need to catch up. Thanks to all who emailed with concern about my missing gift. I am SOOO glad it turned up. Could you imagine the disappointment if the good old Post Office had lost it. Doesn't bear thinking about !! As I previously mentioned I had no intention of waiting til Christmas to open my pressie - just don't have the patience. So open it I did. I will post photos in the next few days but I will just say I am delighted with what I received. Absolutely wonderful !! I have sent an email to thank Jeanne and I know she was as anxious as me when the parcel appearred to be mislaid. I am wondering if I am the only naughty blogger to open my gift early - surely not lol !! Anyone feel the need to confess alongside of me ????
Well my 30's stars got a bit of work and turned into this
Do you like the border fabric ?
I got this from my fabric warehouse on Sale night for 89 pence a metre. It is not a 30's print but I decided it would work well as the colours are very similar. I love the way it shades from one colour to the next and I love how it looks on the quilt.
Next on my list was to make a knitting bag for my sister. The plan was to make a nice quilted bag and fill it with different balls of wool. If you have read my blog for a while you may remember that my quilts always turn out bigger than I anticipated. Well same thing happened here . Never mind fitting in a few balls of wool - you could have fitted in the actual sheep - lol !!! Don't quite know what I was thinking of. I must plan before I go charging in. So change of plan - these blocks were re-jigged and will now become a small quilt for a friends little girl. This is halfway quilted in this picture. Now I really need to make that knitting bag.... Time is running out but I work best under pressure. However it is looking unlikely that Patrick will get his quillow this Christmas. I have a ton of present shopping still to do as well as loads of other stuff.
Nice to be back and have a lovely weekend.
