Summer is coming!!

Here is the promised picture of my "St Clementine" Quilt, which goes off to the quilters today, I am so excited!! I just love the fresh crisp colours of this quilt. It's not all put together yet, in these photos, but I haven't taken a complete photo of it yet, but I think you get the idea!! Once it is quilted, I'll post a completed picture, so you can see the detail in the quilting, as the gals at "Edge to Edge" do a great job!!

And all the daffodils are coming out, at our house at the moment, and this just reminds me that Spring is around the corner, sunny days and longer nights are not too far away!!

We have had the longest, wettest winter this year, and yes! I am ready for summer, to feel the sun on my face, and not to feel cold anymore!

I can't wait to get this one back from the quilters, so I can display it in the house to add a splash of summer colour!!

Until next time

Time away from the computer creates results...

It's been a little while since my last post, all due to fact that a new computer entered the household, and I had to learn how to use it, or should I say get used to the new features and the way the programs worked, why does every computer have to be just that little bit different!! I just wish I could do all this on the iPad, but I can't upload photos on the iPad version of this site, any suggestions??

Anyway it has given me plenty of time to stitch - I have finished 5 quilts (not all yet quilted, but tops are done!!) - "Apples For Jam", "St. Clements", " Kaffe Tapestry", "It's A Hoot!" and "Kiss, Kiss" and made three more blocks for my "Swoon" quilt!!

I have also completed a project for "Country Threads" magazine, which unfortunately I can't show you...shh! It's a secret! Oh! Okay just a titbit okay! Just to whet the appetite!

And here are the next three blocks for my "Swoon" quilt, by Camille Roskelley of Thimbleblossoms...

And next time I will show pictures of the quilts I have completed during my break!!
