Real photo's this time


The cabin fever finally kicked in after nearly 5 weeks of not leaving the house other than to do the school run, and as promised I took the quilts for a walk :)
So as I also promised some un-faffed with pictures




We had a jaunt to the park with the quilts and Madam leading the way


This is partly show's how fab "him in doors" really is, hiding behind a plastic rock (yup its plastic!?!) holding a quilt in place for photos :D 


The binding was done on Friday and I know the sashing doesn't line up but I love this quilt to bits. It has been named "Fairytale Forest" 


Thank you all for your advice on sewing machines it was much appreciated! I have a lovely machine all boxed up in the sewing room, that we picked up today, ready to play with tomorrow and I. CAN'T. WAIT!!!!

Expect a sewing machine review soon :)

Hope your weekends going well!

  2. They are all beautiful! Love the diamond one with all those bright colors! And if you hadnt mentioned the sashing not lining up I would not have noticed. I really had to search for it. it's still a beauty and you can be really proud of it. Cant wait to see and read about your new toy!

  10. Plastic rock? Uh, yeah, I could see how bereft of rocks the North East was when I was down in Sheffield at the weekend, I can see why they brought the plastic ones in... o.O

    Anywho, the diamond quilt is fab, and looking forward to reading about your new toy
