Baby Quilt 2

Just a quick update on the jungle HSTs that appeared a while back.

They've now been combined to make the top for another zig zag baby quilt.

Very much a work in progress type picture.  I really like how this one is working out.  And I now have, hopefully, the right fabric for the back and binding.  I foresee a quilting and binding session in my future!

Strawberries and white!

More exciting news from my garden...on my regular inspection of the strawberry plants I've found baby strawberries

Or at least I found them on one plant, the other has decided its mission in life is to grow leaves.  Hopefully I'll
get to at least see some red strawberries.  The birds round here are keen on berries.

And speaking of red

I couldn't resist trying out making a pinwheel for my next baby quilt.

New Toy!

Big excitement this weekend is the purchase of a new car.  A lot of debating went on beforehand but in the end I went for a red mini.

Brilliant fun to drive and the weather and roads have been kind so the roof has been down.  Couple of lessons learnt - a hat or hairband is a must and suncream would be a good idea too!

Normal Service Will Be Resumed...

...with a vengeance once I find the cable for my camera.  It's annoying as I have at least two so one is always where my camera is, or at least that's the plan.

I have also been pretty busy changing jobs and doing all the peripheral stuff that comes with that.

So busy that I had totally failed to notice the upcoming FNSI and now, as I've made other totally pleasant plans, I won't be able to participate for the second month in a row.  But if you're interested in finding out what it's all about then click this link

Handmade by Heidi

Hopefully that worked and hopefully I'll remember the simple way of doing it.

Anyways whilst remembering (and being too chicken to post another button linky thing) if you're a UK quilter then you may want to look in on Lily's Quilts Brit Quilt group (button over there -----> somewhere, the cool union flag one...that's it you know you want to find out more) designed to give us British quilters somewhere to virtually meet up and chat. <Looks embarassed> I have signed up quite early on but due to earlier excuses I haven't got round to having a good nosey and joining the fun but I keep reading good things about it so will be making regular visits in future.

Right enough apologetic blogging, watch out for the re-emergence of posts over the weekend I have plenty to share.
