Err, we got a puppy just before Christmas, and my life has been in suspended animation since
Ted, ready to go for first walk , firmly strapped into coat
Reminds me of when Robyn was born. I am not a natural go with the flow person.
I understand some people actually have a puppy and get on with their lives as well.
Late February, finally tried to get back to some sewing, so let little pooch ( Ted ) into room.
Within 30 seconds she found the only pin on the floor and trod on the sewing machine pedal
Did that seam quite fast....OUT YOU GO !
But, finally got the simply solids amaranth july quilt together and I like, you like?
Daughter is now 15, and capable of looking after doggy whilst I attended London Modern Quilt Guild at last. Enjoyed the meeting. Good buzz, as we have now joined modern quilt guild, whoo hoo!
Challenge this month was to make a boxy pouch which Cara from pink stitches demoed for us, thanks Cara. Chose some linen mix solid to combine with print.Used fairly light fusible interfacing, so a bit too floppy for my liking...but with lots of stuffing and starch spray made it pull itself together for the photo. I enjoyed the simple zip, no fannying around with zip tabs. Should have waited until my order of chunky zips arrived, but when you want to get on with a project, you just have to go for it.When they do arrive, I can make more.The zip is not a nasty royal blue, honest. I think iPhoto enhanced it a bit too much.
One of my junior docs sent me this photo of his bubby wrapped in the quilt I made for her...sweet.
