I have been missing from my blog for about 3 weeks . Reason being my family have been visiting .
This is my daughter in law Alison who decided she wanted to learn something new so we settled for crazy patchwork .
She got the hang of it very quickly , bright girl, and decided to make a bag from a Lynette Anderson book I had bought at the quilt show .
The piece with the cat and dog on it are the front flap of the bag . By now I should imagine it has been sitting proudly on her shoulder .
Tomorrow hopefully I will have time to show the quilts that took my fancy at the NEC Festival of quilts .
Now I'm off to sit quietly with some chocolate in my hot little hand  .

These last 2 pics,. were for another blog but popped up unannounced . I dare not cancel them in case the whole lot disappears .
I was making red onion chutney , and a pic,. of my most recent orchid .
