Look! A blog post!

Yes I have been a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad blogger - but I've had nothing to blog about. Yesterday, however, I spent the day with the Lyttelton Quilters at Glentui Meadows, a country lodge in North Canterbury. Here are some photos from the day:
Sue-Ellen made this lovely bag from a partly embroidered doily and some hand -dyed fabric that didn't come out right. The combination worked brilliantly. It's partly completed in the photo. I loved the pattern, so will make some bags this way.
Here's Sue-Ellen (who won't thank me for the butt view - sorry), Donna and Aileen working hard on their projects.
I rotary cut, sewed, cut again, and made the various sections of my quilt. Heres' where I laid it all out on the floor to see how it would look together. The colour is not right in the big picture.
This is better - the light colour around the centre squares is a mauve colour. Click on the photo to get a better look - a lot of the fabric detail is lost unless you can see it closer. The feature fabric is Hoffman's "Feathers" - in the centre of the blocks, and the outside border.

Hi Shirley,
Glad you had some quilting time - your blues are looking veru nice.

Do keep warm.......the weather is all over the place; different from hour to hour around here. Raining about every 2nd hour.
