My beautiful chevron blanket

Here are a couple of photos of the beautiful blanket Louise made for me.  I just love it! I love the colours.  She crocheted until her arm nearly fell off and I am so grateful!

Louise's birthday cushion

Well Louise finally got her cushion that I was making her for her birthday! Here are the photos of it.

This is the quilt for my bed.  I added the mustard border today and I am very happy with it....and this for the back.  Until next time I hope to have more to show you.

My first blog

Hello blogland!
It's taken a long time but I have finally got my blog up and running....well sort of.  I'm still not completely sure what I'm doing but I thought I'd start blogging anyway.

With my son Lloyd in Europe at the moment and my middle child having just moved out I have had a bit more time than usual so I have been finishing some projects that needed to be finished.  The first project is a gift for my lovely friend Louise whose birthday was in May!!! As I haven"t had a chance to give it to her yet I"ll give you a sneak peek.

The second project I have been working on is a quilt for my bed.  I"d come to a bit of a road block but a recent visit to Ametie inspired me and I sewed a border around it which I"m pleased with.  Now I"m working on the back.

So now I"m going to try a work out how to put up the photos! Yeah!!  It worked!  So this is the front of a long cushion.  I appliqued her year of birth on the front.

and this is the back.
