Wow, has it really been 'that' long since I did a post? According to the date stamp on my last post, yes, yes it has.
I have been sewing, and crocheting, but I don't have pics of everything to share with you just yet, as I have to either take photos, or find that safe place that I saved them in!
I do have a couple of pics to share with you, both are of WIP's, but the quilt is now finished, and perhaps I shouldn't be sharing a pic of it just yet, as the recipient hasn't received it, but by the time I publish this post, she will have, so I think I'm safe lol
First up, is a crochet blanket I'm making....using whatever balls of pink, blue, white or purple yarn I had lying around in my stash spots (we all have those right?)
This pattern is called Drop in the pond, and is a free pattern on Ravelry, which you can grab for yourself by clicking HERE
Next up, is a Healing Heart quilt I suggested that my quilting group do for one of the members who has had some health woes. I got everyone to make 12 & 1/2" heart blocks, in THEIR favourite colour...and of the 19 blocks, there wasn't two the same, and I think they look great in their multi coloured splendidness, don't you?
When I joined the QAYG blocks, I used two different colour sashings, so when it came time to decide what I'd do for binding, I remembered seeing a two sided binding method, which worked perfectly on this quilt, and I highly recommend it to you for a different take on two colour binding......just make sure you cut/sew it using the measurements that you'll find HERE
I promise to show you the pics of the finished quilt, as I'm pretty proud of how it turned out, and I also promise to get back into more regular posting.....I spend so much time on the internet, I should have the most up to date blog out there, but sadly I've been slack.....well, it is my middle nickname after all lol
Oh, I also need to post some pics of the trip to Melbourne I just took with my gorgeous daughter, and her two little princesses.....I think my feet didn't know what hit them, but I survived and for a whirlwind trip, it was a blast.
