On my own this week,B has gone on a motorbike trip to France with his Club.They are riding to Millau in the south to see the bridge in the sky.Its a long ride,I couldn't do it now,couldn't sit on the bike that long ,my joints wouldn't like it.
Don't much like being on my own and I'm a terrible worrier.
Been keeping busy with decorating crocheting and a bit of stitching.
The two end panls of the table runner have been stitched and I can now put it together
Amigurumi animals are growing.
This is supposed to be a cat....
Aren't they cute.
The weather has warmed up and it's been glorious last couple of days,this always happens in September when the children go back to school after their summer hols.
Lovely a Autumnal mornings and evenings,I love this season.
A bit more of this,Central panel finished and started on the end ones.
I love this pattern,it's so pretty and romantic.
The end panels are traced ready to stitch.
My lovely B bought me a brilliant LED light box, I love it it makes such a difference when tracing.
Here's the old one,with just a light bulb inside,had to keep moving my work to catch the light.
and here's my new led one,woohoo I'm a lucky girl.
Isn't it a beaut, A3 so big enough for anything I want to trace.
I've not been doing much in the crafty line,we do all the jobs that need doing at home during the school holidays ,this is me whitening the tile grout in the bathroom,time consuming job but worth the effort. Kitchen tiles next,then the bedrooms could do with a lick of paint .....sigh .
I did make this block,saw this pattern and loved it.Nesting churn dash block,I decided to make it in just two colours instead of multi.
I have a feeing I will just have to make a quilt in this pattern,purple and white for my youngest daughter Natalie ,her fave colours.I will use this block as a table topper,it's big enough coming out at 24 inch square.
Nickys quilt is finally finished and ready to to Australia with me in November.
I love it,it has eight extra blocks ,
My usual wobbly quilting( the quilting police needn't bother coming to my house lol)
I have made quilts for many years but only started to quilt then two years ago.A pattern is beyond me but I will keep trying.
Shez has been raving about this book so I thought I would get it.....well Shez you are not wrong it's a fabulous book.Ive already decided what I am going to make first and have photocopied it ready to trace.
A beautiful table runner.Cant wait to get started.
Made another one of these little pots.
And another pincushion.
The last two reighndeer .
Stitched a couple of club badges on for Bs friends( 4 in total) their wives can't thread needles,all the sewing comes to me.
Thought I would share this,sewing on the binding and sorting the loose ends ,of couse Lilly has to help....
She's a little bugger,sits on what you're doing and can't shift her.
Half way through painting my craft room,so better get back to it.
