I'm back! Gosh I am not very good at making the time to update my blog. In my defence we have moved house and have two lots of overseas visitors... Here is a photo of my completed BOM from Material Obsession by Sue Ross - I loved making it - I struggled with the fabrics as they were really not what I would pick - but I now love it!!! I changed the middle applique block as I did not fancy it - and added the hexagons - I am so happy with the end result. I intend to hand quilt this - I now have three quilts ready to hand quilt and this is second in line!!
In my absence I have also finally completed the blocks below and have the quilt top for this quilt completed (the first hand quilting project on the list) it is called Star Rose and a two versions of it are featured in Material Obsession 2 - a great book!!! by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke. I will post a picture tomorrow of the finished top - lots of orange!!
We also made our halloween pumpkin - a new tradition in our house in recent years (thanks to our American friends the Hipps). Sadly not one visitor came to the door - which meant we had a lot of treats to consume...
My 6 year old has also been cooking up a storm, thanks to Junior Masterchef - I missed getting a photo of the amazing Apple pie, but remembered for the Friars Omelette (yum) and the pancakes.
And lastly Retromummy www.retromummy.blogspot.com
has a fantastic giveaway on her blog for some of the fabric below - go and have a look - she has the loveliest fabrics!!!!
Thanks for the comments - it is lovely as a new blogger to actually get comments!!!
See you all soon!!
P.S The photos are from my phone sorry hence the average quality!! Time to learn to use the fancy camera.
