Overdue blog

Well I have been very very remiss this year and have not updated my blog all year.  The excuse was that |I my lovely husband gave me a tablet for my Christmas present and I thought I would be clever and try to transfer all my details to the tablet and update from there!  Well best laid plans of mice and men - or I am a total PICNIC and did it wrong but I have got all my settings back to where they should be so here is an update of 2014 todate
 We had this lovely little book at the shop for using up small pieces of jelly rolls that were left over and this little bag is superb it is only approx 6" x 5" but lovely to make.
My Rob has been busy in his workshop since Christmas making this wonderful Art Deco box - I have refused point blank for him to even think about selling it and it is now on my dresser in the Dining Room. 
 I have really decided that I have to finish some of my UFO's and have started quite well this year - Poppy as always has been amazingly helpful !
 Here is the finishes quilt it looks really good even if I do say so myself.
This quilt looks fabulous - I started it about eight years ago wadded bound and hand quilted then didn't bind it - it was on our back bed in its unfinished state for some time and then got put in a box under the bed! Anyway I pulled it out made the binding and it is finished - I am soo pleased I made myself do it..
 I have finished all my knitting and so decided to play with some more hexagons as I had enjoyed making the Christmas Wreath and once again Poppy has been supervising as usual.
We are doing another mystery Quilt at our Aston Quilters Group and these are my first three blocks.  We have got eight to make and they are looking good.  Some of the blocks are quite challenging but I keep telling our ladies that it will be worth it in the end!  I think I might find some voodoo dolls with pins sticking out in my likeness before this is finished!
Well I hope that some folks will read this blog and do apologise to all that have followed me in the past will forgive me for being so tardy this year.


  1. No need to apologise Pam. Life gets very hectic and I can see you've been very busy yourself making some beautiful pieces. Your mystery quilt is looking good and well done for finishing your UFO.
