I was really thrilled today to finish sewing the binding on a quilt that has been on the go for about ten years, well maybe not ten, but at least nine years.. I kid you not. I started these blocks while going to the Otane Patchwork group.
The block is called Windy City and a group of us did these using only two fabrics for the blocks. The size of this quilt is a small single size. It is incredible to think that these fabrics have not dated yet.... I also did this block many years ago for my husbands nephew Mike as a cot quilt. These days it sits over the back of a lounge chair in their house.
Now what am I going to do next. Actually I have already started some stitching for another childs quilt, as well as the one for my youngest son and his wife. Always pays to have Works in Progress.
I have been quite busy lately with making cards. Last week a group I belong to met for Lunch at Rendevous in Palmerston North. It was lovely to catch up with a group of like minded people. I bought home a large collection of hand made cards. So far all my christmas cards are handmade.
I have also been minding my 3rd granddaughter quite a bit lately. We have got lots of new ducklings and chickens which she enjoys going to feed. I will post some more picture soon.
bye for now.
