A funny week!

... as in funny strange, not funny haha!  I've lived in the same house (on and off) for the last 18 nearly 19 years, and I have to say, I like it here.  So it was a sad day on Friday when my neighbours of the last 12 years moved to a new home.  They have been such lovely neighbours and it's been a delight to watch their young son grow and go to school.  We had great fun in the summer baking together, and a sunflower growing contest... such memories. 

So this change has to be marked with a gift, don't you think?  And what better than a quilt, but oh the dilemma of which one could I possibly part with!

We decided on this one

I spent the weekend catching up on my Bees Knees Bee blocks. 

September Cobweb blocks for Marlene

October Improv Fishy blocks for Lynette. 

Not a lot else been going on, though there are signs of some Medlar Jelly in process  :) 

Oh, and a little more progress in the garden ...

Roll on January !

I hope you've all had a productive weekend,
Happy Quilting!

Our fabulous neighbours of 6 years have their house up for sale and we're so sad to see them go - I can't imagine what it must be like to lose them after 12 years!! What a lovely gift you have given them - so generous. Not to mention beautiful!!

Your friend will just love the quilt.

Like all of the projects you have going on.

It's always sad when neighbours who became friends move, I do hope the replacements will turn out to be just as good.

Your quilt looks beautiful even folded! I'm sure it will be treasured. I too hope you get good new neighbours.

What a lovely gift! We had fabulous neighbors in our last village & we moved away from them, never had such good ones since.

Make a list of all those wonderful combinations & flit from one to the other - you could always quilt a butterfly...
