I am sorry that I have been so silent for so long but have not had much to say. I know I should have told you all before I disappeared. Excuses - do I have them? Well I have spent a lot of time machine quilting my large applique project which was shown at the Festival of Quilts last week.
How scary was that!! Here is a photo
So it will now be put away our local show next May and until the Summer Fair comes around next year when it will be the first prize in the raffle and hopefully raise a pleasing amount of money.
The Festival was marvellous as usual and it was good to have enough time to return to the quilts that I really enjoyed for a second look. The traders were calling to me as usual and here is one bundle that I bought
I am still working on my other applique quilt - I had thought I would do a lot of glueing on holiday but managed to do nothing and then thought I would do it all whilst watching the Olympics but being such a sports nut I decided that I did not want to be distracted from the sport and so had a totally sewing free fortnight.
Promise I will be back again before too long
