Floral Bouquet

I have been taking advantage of the rainy days we have been having to catch up on some hand quilting my Floral Bouquet.  Seven has been helping, sitting by me with his blankie and every so often trying to sit on the edges instead of his bed.

Stitching Day with Friends

It was a lovely day for catching up and stitching with friends, the sun was shining and not a black cloud in the sky. Usually I forget to take pictures.

Dutch Treat

Not sure if I will use this one a bit darker than I want in the quilt.

Also my apologies I am posting and on the Internet using my iPhone so I haven't been commenting on any blogs as it is so hard using the smaller format will be back normally Saturday :)

Daisy Meadows

Another block finished for Daisy Meadows. This makes three.

I will say this is testing my sewing machine skills as now I am hand stitching most of my projects. Lots of unpicking and back to slow stitching until I get used to the machine again...

The story so far...
