From last mothers day

 I have finally finished my project, made from last years mothers day present: a moda charm pack - so long ago that I can't even remember the name of it.

 Actually, to be fair to me, I did kinda finish it a while ago, but just had to finish a bit of the binding.  Now it is all done.
It is a dissapearing nine patch pattern and was very easy to make up and put together.  It was the hand quilting that took all the time.  I did spiralling squares in each square.

- which you cant really see!  I really should have tried to do it on my machine, but I like hand quilting, it gives me something to do when I am sitting down in the evenings - which probably explains why it took so long .... I don't do much sitting down!

Anyway, its all finished now and looking very lovely on my glass table in the lounge.

We had the first Bugsy Malone show last night, which went very well and the kids were amazing with their singing, dancing: and of course, splurge guns.  I must take my camera tonight.  We sold loads of tickets, programmes and refreshments, so hopefully lots of money will be made - for the next production.  We are back there at 1pm today for the matinee and stay right through to tonights performance.  It should be great fun


  1. Hope the shows went well today. I think the table topper is lovely. Too bad we can't really see your quilting.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message
