Back to my blog

 I've been neglecting my blog - busy with family and doing things that
don't take too much thought, like the piece above which is made from leftover strips of quilt fabric, stitched with built in patterns and couched with yarns using my new sewing machine (below) The Brother QC 2000 has taken a bit of getting used to but I'm liking it. It does a lot of things better than my Viking Designer1, although there are still things I like with both of my old machines.

 

I'm also doing some quilting and even managed some dressmaking this week - finished a top that I'm happy with. This month's BOM is done with English paper piecing - I have everything ready but have not actually started yet. I'm not one for hand sewing but I think it will be nice to have something to take along and do.

Do check out the Designing Women blog - I did a post after our April meeting with lots to look at and other members are beginning to post too - wich is great.

DH is having further problems with his health - several trips to Emergency in the past 2 weeks. Posted by Picasa

  Not much work happening lately, I've been painting walls instead of fabric. I have made another bag which I haven't photographed yet and have been working on the DW red challenge. See the DW blog for my first piece.
