And here comes Christmas…

It’s been a while since I posted as I’ve been busy with health issues and projects. I have a project awaiting inclusion in the Popular Patchwork magazine so I hope to see that in an issue soon and another project almost complete.

I was lucky to find a Sewing Box tin with Danish cookies in Debenhams (UK) yesterday, the last in the shop. Having seen a photo of this on a Quilters website, I imagined it to be larger than it is but I’m happy with it. It’s spacious enough to hold all of my scissors, snips and pinking shears to keep them together and it’s cute too.

The Sewing Box Tin comes with Danish Cookies and measures 9½ ins width, 5½ins height and 5½ ins depth. The 3D effect is so realistic as you can see.

Happy Christmas and A Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year 2017 to all.

Yay! My 9-Patch quilt is on the Magazine cover….

I received my preview copy of the Popular Patchwork magazine and I’m really pleased to see my 9-Patch quilt is on the front cover.

Health hasn’t been the best for a while but this has lifted my spirits so much.

I also have another quilt accepted to be split over two issues in a few months time so very happy.

Hope you are all as well as can be – gentle virtual hugs coming to those who would like one…

Recent projects

I’ve been working on some projects since my last posting here and I’ve managed to complete 2 quilts that will be featured in Popular Patchwork magazine, one in the next issue and a second split into 2 issues of the magazine later in the year.

I also found time between them to complete a project for myself from a book – Folk Art Applique by Clare Kingslake – that I bought a few years ago. Being used to working on quilts, the 3 small Wallhangings were a challenge in that each is approx. A4 size. As I don’t have the time or dexterity of hand(s) to complete needle-turn quilting I appliqued the pieces onto the backing, and machined the long grasses too. I embroidered the ‘flowers’ and bird markings to finish them. The 3 Wallhanging holders are 7½ inches width which shows how small they are. I love the end result and the fact that they are mine.
