I was a bit stumped as what to do for this one but eventually after a false start came up with this.
I even did a bit of applique which is NOT my favourite thing. I need to practise I think !
Anyway Julia sent me a lovely email thanking me very much which was appreciated as I have been involved in a couple of swaps lately where I received no thanks at all. On one I was left wondering if my package had got there.
So that's the end of the 4seasons swap. I did 3 out of the 4 and really enjoyed it. Thankyou to Margaret for all her hard work. My quilt wall is looking lovely. I am also doing a couple of private swaps so my collection will be growing still further. Fun ? Oh yes . . .
I decided this week to have a sort out of my fabrics as they were looking a bit muddled. I tried to get them all in colour order of a sort. During this I noticed my BIG scrap box was very full so that only means one thing..
Now here in Britain our energy prices are going mad. Our heating costs have doubled and a bit more the last few months. So this Winter I am going to be a bit more careful with our heating bills. I must admit I am the worst culprit. The first sign of a bit of a chill and on goes the heating. We keep hearing on the news that Britain is in a recession and we have a "credit crunch" going on. So to do my bit I have decided to make DH Jason his very own "credit crunch quilt" - lol ! In 5 years of quilting I have not made him a quilt to call his own. Bad wife !!! So he is getting one whether he wants one or not.
Not sure where this is going but at least now I can get the lid back on my scrap box.
Both children have several quilts and I have a couple that I wrap up in when I'm reading or something so now Jason can join the quilt gang - lol !
I never watch TV but I love the Olympics and have been doing some hand sewing. Pictures in next post. . .
