As this is intended to be a blog about quilting, etc., I think it's about time I shared more than the odd hexie...and we all know how odd one of them was!! (If you're just here for the hexies or the cute dog photos don't panic, they're further down!)
My most recent finish used the pattern from the QAL hosted by Jennifer . I didn't join in the QAL but discovered it through another blog and started way after everyone else finished!! I was given the charm pack (I think it's Freebird by Momo but please feel free to correct me!) and hadn't a clue what to make and the QAL came at just the right time. Without further ado, here's the 'ta da' moment...are you ready?!
|Sorry about the odd angles - I've yet to work out the best place to take photos of larger quilts, I may need to invest in a washing line, just for the photo opportunity!|
|The back, with a toothpaste stripe!|
I would like to sell this quilt and have approached a couple of local shops but it didn't fit in with their stock theme and we're short of crafty handmade shops up here. I'm going to have a think about where to go next and if I don't sell it then I'll adopt it. Ceri has been really helpful (thank you!) as has Marjorie (thank you!) but if anyone else has any suggestions they're very welcome!
I haven't managed much sewing in the past few days but I have managed another three-hexie combo
|I haven't joined these either but I did manage to sellotape them to the door in the right order!|
We've had Alfie staying for the last 24 hours - a little holiday for him! Archie was feeling quite generous and allowed Alfie to roll him
|Doggy action shots are tricky - sorry it's a bit blurry!|
|Spot Archie's lovely pink tongue!|
|He may look relaxed but Alfie is like a coiled spring!|
|I promise I didn't pose this photo!|
