The three on the right of the picture as well as the big 30's one are made by me but the others are all made by some very talented bloggers. Aren't they all lovely ? My little sewing corner is filling up nicely. I have another to come with the 4seasons swap and then I'm hoping for some more swaps. Making these is very addictive. When signing up for the swaps my partners probably groan as I give NO preferences whatsoever. This is because I just love the complete surprise of what my partner has made me. I am not difficult to please and I am not fussy ( I tell my DH that's how he got to marry me - LOL !!! )
I have been working on my Summer quilt for this latest swap but have made a boo-boo ! As I was working on it something was nagging at me in the back of my mind. Eventually the light bulb went on and I decided to check the email with my partners preferences. DUH ! The only colour my partner does not like is in the quilt. Not a huge lot of it but enough ! I have hummed and hawed and decided that if my partner dislikes the colour enough to list it then I should take notice. So onto plan B. I have another idea and have picked out fabrics and will start hopefully tomorrow. Good job these quilts are small. Honestly I don't know where I keep my brain sometimes.
My very clever daughter passed her driving test last week - Well done Jess !! And wouldn't you know a few days later her driving instructor became a grandma for the first time to a baby boy called Ollie. Well obviously as a thankyou for getting Jess through her test this baby will now have a quilt - lol ! The emergency baby quilt I did last week would have been ideal for a girl but not a boy so I plan to do something very simple and easy. I have some fabric picked out and after getting off here I am going to get it all cut out ready to sew tomorrow. Blimey I'm going to get a lot done tomorrow - lol !
I also need to get these sent off
they are the little hats for the Save the Children campaign I talked about earlier. It only runs for another couple of months so I plan to get a few more done. All in a good cause.
I'd best get my skates on - I am off to my quilting group tonight and need to cut out some more 3D hexagons to sew while I'm there. I suppose I'd better feed the family too - lol !
Happy quilting !
