a mixed bag ...

Is it just me, or is everyone a little lacking in energy and v v vroooom!  I've been a little lax in posting lately, but better to have something to show than bore you silly ?

Recently I have been the very lucky recipient of these two beautiful hand made beaded badges from Mary.  I have to say she is an amaizing beader as well as a perfectionist with quilting too! 
Thank you Mary, I love them both  :)

The light was poor, but I'm a sucker for a quilt along, and the Old Red Barn Flikr group is running another.  Asterisks!  This is my first block, I'm using my large stash of Wildwood by Erin McMorris for FreeSpirit.  I've got all the blocks and strips cut, I just need to find a few moments to piece them all!

I finished a quilt last week too!  I made this one last year using a charm pack, it has travelled to South Wales to be part of the summer raffle at a school on Barry Island.   It was hard to part with, but I know it will help the school out raising much needed funds.

I went to the Pearoom Quilters exhibition at Heckington at the weekend, more on that in the next post ....

oh, and I'll let you know about my pinkie promise too!

Happy Quilting!

I've definitely had a lack of energy lately. I think it's the extreme heat here. It just sucks the life out of me.

Nice beadwork on the badges. Mary does very nice work.

I'm been on the fence about the quilt-along. It looks like fun. I may just have to get started on that one.

I love your latest quilt. The design is really pretty, but I could gaze at the quilting all day. I love feathers, and these look so pretty. I'll be it was hard to part with that one. You're very generous.

I agree about the lack of energy thing. I wondered if everyone was just out gardening? Your quilt is just beautiful, I loved it and the quilting was wonderful.

Same problems in Finland too ;O)
I agree with the other two ladies about your quilt!
I hope you have a nice summer.
