Checking In!!

Haven't done much on the quilting side of life lately as we have had family over from Albany WA Australia for a visit. Had a wonderful time and drank too much red wine, but thats what you do.
Must get back to finishing the quilt I started at the retreat, as Mereana's (GD) birthday is coming up real fast on the 5th August.
Those jolly big grand-daughters are now busy producing children of their own, so now I have another Great grandchild to make a quilt for. 4th one. Actually they are my husbands GGkids not mine ( I'm far too young for that carry-on :-))
I'm off to another retreat in a couple of weeks so must find ( not too hard to do) another UFO to finish!!

Great Weekend Retreat!

What a wonderful retreat I went to last weekend. Scrumptious food, fabulous bed, and a weekend of sewing with no interuptions. Every girls dream!!
I spent Friday night drinking too much wine, and couldn't be bothered sewing, but thats O.K.!
Saturday I added a 12" strip to each side of a strippy quilt I made 12 years ago. It was not big enough to go over the side of the bed, so the quilt languished in the cupboard. I am now in the process of quilting the add ons.

Sunday I started sewing together the blocks I had made earlier for one of my dear Grand-daughters 9th birthday quilt. I got the idea for the string quilt from Maryquilts.com
