Look Below!

I am very excited! What I really want to show you is a great pic of my Blue Frames below! Now it is an attachment Karen from Quilts on Bastings has sent me and the pattern is by Kate of
One Flew Over - I did choose fabrics and stitched it together and asked Karen if she could do the quilting so I can take a tiny bit of credit - I just love it, thanks Girls! I'm on fire - this is popped over the back of the lounge ready for me to pick up and stitch at night - it's making me happy!



Up above - yes, I did get to the machine yesterday - a little sneak peek at what I have started - it is to be a baby quilt and hopefully I will show you the flimsy and tell you about it later on in the week. A little more here and there - I find as long as I do things in short spurts without repetition for ages the dear old arms stand up to it - it has been a long six months and boy, am I going to make up for it!

Wow Lurline, that quilt is stunning! So simple, but what a statement! I just love the blue against the white and all those quilted swirlies and just fabulous! Did Karen do that freehand or was it marked before the quilting began? It is just so perfect!

Nice to see you back in the game!
