Another pop along to blog world . Where have I been , nowhere !! I suppose because its winter I get up later and go to bed earlier . That cuts into my spare time . The shorter winter days really do make a difference to what can be finished . Sewing in artificial light isn't a good thing for me and I do no like daylight bulbs .
I have been reading more but that is no excuse .
I have been doing more crochet . This is the 2nd hexi blanket I have made . The last one had red borders . Although I didn't make it to sell a friend ask could it be bought and I said yes , . I knew I could make another so I was quite happy to let it go .
I have started another hexi blanket . This time I am putting a beige row around each hexi to give them a more spaced out look .I am so hooked, excuse the pun, on crocheting these little bits of woolly nonsense in the evenings .
I have not give up on my patchwork and quilting . On the go I am making a quilt for a neighbour that will be a gift . A quilt for a dearly loved grandson . A snowman wall hanging for a great granddaughter who has a birthday in Dec,. It's all go really .
I go to my sewing group on Thursday afternoon . This is the back of a quilt my friend is putting on a quilt she is making . I think it is really interesting .She made it out of donated pieces .Just shows what can be done for no expense . It will be a double sided quilt , flannelette on one side and cotton on the other . If it is finished before she goes off on her winter long holiday I will show the other side otherwise we will have to wait .
I shall show my gift quilts as they get finished .
