It's been a never ending series of lockdowns and the months just seem to roll into one long 'space'. I hope everyone is managing well in these trying times. It's difficult to be missing family and friends but hopefully we will start moving forward once again.
School holidays are here and one thing about lockdown is it's great for getting things done.
I have been busy hand quilting an old flimsy. It was about time my novelty hexies had their time in the sun. It has been very enjoyable finishing this off, as it isn't very big it was quite manageable. I remember how much fun it was fussy cutting the fabrics for the flowers.
The next hand quilting project has been basted today and I'm looking forward to ticking this flimsy off the list too. These clamshells have been hanging around for a few years too.
A recent quilt that was professionally quilted came back to me too. The binding has been waiting to be sewn down, another tick off the list.. My Okehampton quilt is complete. I am so happy with this quilt, just love the scrappy feel of it.
My slow works in progress have been progressing too.
The first border of 'basket case' by Irene Blanck is done...
The first monster quilt top is finished and has been taken to the quilter..... This version is a little different to the original pattern as I have made it for a work colleague. The second one I am working on is as the pattern.
We had a little addition to our household during Lockdown... a new Fox terrier girl has joined us and her name is Gypsy.
She has settled in very well and has an affectionate temperament. I feel this is due to being raised in a home environment with children who have handled her a lot.
Introducing Gypsy- she has taken to helping with quilting chores very well.
Learning to walk three dogs is a challenge at times, almost like trying to dance with an octopus, but with time Gypsy will find her place and learn to stay on one side ! lol
Hope you have a great day and I hope to post some more over the holidays and catch up with friends blogs.
