still here ...

... I've been reading a lot lately  ...  blogs  ... I treated myself to an ipad, though I've yet to work out how to blog from it...  I'm sure some of you clever ladies will point me in the right direction ...

... and 'those' books ... all three of them! 


But I have been busy sewing and quilting ...


Ab Fab Free Bees ...


I've been working on my 'In the Frame Purse' for my swap partner ...


and the purse is done, I've just got a few extras to get in hand ... and post it all this week.

the July BOM for the PeaRoom Quilters ...


Which went down at the summer celebration well!

And in addition to quilting a customer quilt, I've been very busy working on my Festival Quilt ...


delivery of said finished quilts by Friday this week! 
I'm afraid this is it for seeing the Quilters Guild Challenge quilt, I'd like the impact of it to be at the show.  I promise to show you the finished quilt come Festival of Quilts.   The theme is 'Britain, what it means to you' - oh the possibilities!


So whilst I've been awol, I have been beavering away ...

normal service to resume shortly :)

I thought you'd maybe been overcome by a sugar high from your last post ;o) Loving what you've been up to while you've remained the strong silent type :oD

Yes, me too, I would like a report on "those" books there seems to be mixed reaction. ;-) Linda

QuiltSue said...

Glad to hear you're OK. I assumed you were busy (just hoped it wasn't with work!), but this weekend I was beginning to be a bit worried.

Lis said...

You've been busy, as usual, but we've missed your lovely posts, welcome back.

It's good to "see" you. Looks like you've been really busy. I love the things you're working on.
