CRACKING PACE

Today I managed to get the first of the give away quilts quilting part finished, so it is now ready for its binding............this one......


AND, AND, what do you know!!! I got the second one quilted too, ready for binding. I cannot believe it, I did it so fast......this one..

OK I will admit to it being a little, 'hmm!' in places, I haven't quilted for ages, not a quilt that is, so was a little rough round the edges. But I do hope the person who gets these, or at least one of them, will like what I have done, and maybe forgive me. I am roaring ahead, so it looks as though the date will be brought forward. Great stuff.

Will tack the last one up tomorrow when I am back from town. I haven't a clue how to quilt that one. Oh, it is the chicken one left to do.

I will post pictures when they are done.

THE PATTERN ..............................................this one......



.............I sent to America for has arrived, it is a very good pattern, very detailed. It has to go on the list for now though as I am concentrating on these give away ones. BUT, I am thrilled to bits with it.

Hi Phyllis,
I did smile when I read your message, I wish I had the patience to do what you do. I do admire your spinning, it is so beautiful, I really want to buy some of your beautiful wool, but must justify it first. You keep putting gorgeous ones up and I get all fired up, then you change them. :-) Beautiful all of them.
