"It's definitely not finished Mum"


That was Cameron's reaction to looking at the current quilt I am working on. He is right, though I don't need reminding!
This is a quilt I started at last year's Kaye England seminar in November. I got the centre piece and the next 2 rows completed at the seminar. Once it was all together I decided I wanted to add an extra row around the whole thing. This got popped away for another day, while I started a new project at the seminar. After talking to Kelly,who is waiting patiently (not) for her baby to make an appearance at any moment, I thought I would tackle this one.....Mmm...sounded like a good thing to do this morning. 168 small , 12 medium and 16 large triangles later, I have decided one extra row will be enough for this quilt! I will get the rows together tomorrow. Cameron is busting to work on his first quilt, so we better get going on that one! We will try and get all the fabric cut out this afternoon before Alexander comes home from school

Zig Zag Quilt


Here is the latest finished quilt. I started this one a few weeks ago and then got held up looking after Alexander with the chicken pox. It is a cot size quilt, for a friend that has had a baby boy. I thought I better finish it today, while I had Phil home. Otherwise it would be another week before it was finished. I begin another week of chicken pox with Cameron! He is looking forward to starting his first quilt as well!

Halloween Sampler


One of the bonuses of Alexander being ill is that he lies on the couch. He wants me to sit next to him, so I can do some cross stitching while I am sitting there. I managed to finish this Halloween piece this afternoon. There was heaps of beading in it, and that has taken me awhile to complete. This piece is my penfriend Charlotte's, I just finished it off for her! I will send it to her once I can get out of the house and get to the post office.
On another note, we are supposed to be going to Hamburg this weekend, fingers crossed that we will actually manage to get out of the house....we are really looking forward to going..It is only 1 1/2 hours train ride from Berlin!

Halloween Lap Quilt


Here is a picture of a quilt I finished this weekend. (Of course I started another one as well). I was given all this Halloween fabric and had no idea what to do with it. My quilt group did this pattern a few months ago. It is called Birds in The Air.
