Sunday Sitrep - MIA

2 weeks?  all I can say is I really have been busy!

So lets get on with some catching up ...


I've received a whole stack of packages for Siblings Together, and will do a post all about those soon ...

There was some of this ..


and these didn't last very long ..


there may have been a considerable amount of home made cakes consumed, but I have no evidence of this,  ....  no guesses why! 

birthday been and gone for another year!

And last weekend I did a work shop ... or two with Patricia Archibald.


seems I can't get my pics right way up at the moment, mine's the middle one ...

and this one was Sunday, and I now have just the binding to stitch down. 

All I can say is, if you haven't ever had the chance to take a class with Pat, you've missed a real treat!  The most inspirational, delightful lady you could possibly meet, funny, patient, and very capable in herding cats! 

I've also made some headway in catching up with my Brit Bee blocks, so I'll do a post about them, hopefully tomorrow.

So, it's back to the salt mines and chaining myself to the quilt frame to continue with the marathon of quilts that currently gloat at me daily in the studio. 
 
I'll try to break free soon ...
 
Happy Quilting!

Love that long red quilt. Looks very interesting. Glad you are getting some fun stuff in, and cake, amongst all the usual work day crap.
