This and That!

Hi Girlfriends! I'm thrilled with the quilting Barb John has done on my Dresden Quilt. It has yet to be bound and then I will spread it out for it all to be seen. I love the quilting and it all looks just as it should - very vintage with lots of original feedsacks.


 Just a little sneak peek at a baby quilt WIP - fingers crossed, more to show soon!
Knock-knock at the door this morning - a lovely bundle of Bungle Jungle fat-quarters. Of course a future quilt for Nate.
 
 Another pic of our gorgeous little boy - 5 weeks old today and I am missing out on watching him grow. Never mind, the little family are all well, healthy and happy - bless them!
 Oopsy, smashed big toe! I had the big glass rotating plate from the microwave fall on it - so proud, I didn't swear - well, not too badly, LOL! I should have it x-rayed today, but think I will stitch instead.
I'm having quite a bit of trouble with Blogger these days - maybe the blame is being cast in the wrong direction - I am not sure?
Also, I would love to see pics of the Melbourne Show winners - so if anyone can let me know where they might be on the internet, I would really appreciate. Quite a few girls from my local quilt group flew over, so it will be lovely to catch up for the show and tell!
For now, Happy Quilting - hugs - Lurline!

Yikes, your toe looks dreadful! I hope it doesn't hurt as badly as it looks. Your Nate looks so very sweet! (I am a bit partial to Nates, having one of my own--now 30+) Your Dresden quilt is gorgeous--the quilting is perfect on it! And, love the Bungle Jungle--have been trying to justify buying some, but now I can just enjoy your project! :) Hope your toe isn't broken, heals well, and in the meantime gives you many guilt free hours of stitching without housework/chores.

Your Dresden looks beautiful and I'm sure the baby quilt will be too.
Take care Lou xx

The quilt looks like a family heirloom! I can't wait to see the whole thing bound and spread out on a bed!

Your poor toe but happy thoughts about that little puddin' of a baby should help take your mind off of it!

Get well quickly!

Congrats on the new arrival of your little grandson in Thailand. He looks gorgeous! I love your Dresden quilt and the quilting. I have 20 blocks of them made, but didn't know what to do next. Can I have Barb John's contact please? She might quilt it for me too! Hugs Nat
