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.


  1. OMG it is completely amazing!!! Did you redo the whole cushion? I can't wait to see it on my couch. You are so, so clever - I LOVE it!! Looking forward to a more normal week next week where we can sit and sew and watch the telly together. You are a such a beautiful friend xxxxxx
