Finally i find some quiet, slow .....space
for some catch up here
you are my winner of my sedge stitched

i shall package them up for you and pop in the post as soon as i hear
from you
i hope you enjoy using them
i would love to know how they go
i have made a few now and given them away to various people
its always good to hear if they are a goer or not!!
one is bamboo, one cotton, the other a mix of both
you will see which, i am sure
hope you enjoy them shelly x
and thank you to all my friends and new visitors for joining in
please pop back x
as if i have time

for another craft
but we women squeeze it all into life huh

i have dreamt of making a quilt for so long
you may recall the first one i made for a christmas swap partner
two years ago
how can 2 whole years go by without being swept away
by this beautiful craft one would think
the second is a long awaited catch up with a sweet lady
in the UK.
Collette has not received this yet
due to my budget and opting for snail mail
I dont think she visits here often so
i am sure its ok to post the pic
i really enjoyed making these baskets and plan
to make some more for

and lastly this crazy
but gorgeous little (20 x 20) soft n snuggly
in part of a swap
and inspired by Aneela of Comfort Stitching
check it out, she is amazing
unlike this novice
i just wish i had more room
this home of mine is full to the brim
no beds vacant and more on their way!!!!!
so as a result of all this i have joined in a
block swap, monthly, still to get to mine.
The lovely Shannon is so patient x
also i have decided its time to go for it and make a quilt for ME!!
so ..........i have joined The Single Girl Quiltalong
Feels good to make the commitment actually
its also nice to know there is so much support, guidelines, a schedule

have a beautiful day...xx
