Hi Everyone!

Yippee - I have followers! I'm so excited because I was a bit worried I was talking to myself, alone in the whole world. Thanks so much to Kathie for your tips. And to Jean and Lizzie and Kim for coming over to read my blog. You can find links to all their beautiful blogs over on the sidebar.

I have had a bit of a lazy week this week. Busy work days mean when I get home I am a bit floppy and look for easy things to do. So the granny squares have had my attention. Easy on the brain and the eyesight. I would say they have me hooked (but that would be a terrible pun) so I won't.

Here is the ever growing pile.......





Don't those ends look daunting? Sewing them in is my least favourite job.

The highlight of the week was meeting with my quilting gang yesterday. They are such great fun and I always come home with my mood enhanced - that may also have something to do with the fabulous food we always devour at these meetings.

I am between quilting projects right now - but I promise there will be lots of pictures coming.

One quilt I have nearly finished is for my daughter (my gang hasn't seen it yet since it is all machine sewn and for the gang meetings we mainly take handwork). Last year we renovated her room. Her chosen colour scheme, red and white, screamed out for a new quilt. It's nearly done - have a look.....



It only needs to be set into a background square. Won't have time to do that today though - maybe next week. I have used mainly Sturbridge scarlets and a pattern called Indiana rising sun by Michelle Yeo. You can find here patterns here.

I hope you have an enjoyable and productive week,

Cheers, Deb

I don't have time right now but I am going to have to go back through your blog and do some reading. You have done some quilt things that interest me very much! I have become a follower of your blog so that I don't miss anything.
