Happy days

Today was a great day with an early start to the airport picking up DS on the way to take pictures of the happy occasion, Three happy grand daughters and a happy mummy and daddy as they are all back together again after our son in law being away in Apghanistan for the last six month. So happy for them all..... Forgot to say only lost .5 kg this time but have been away on retreat for four days and as my dietician said a loss is a loss....

Basket and other stuff

I have revised the pattern a little and made a new start, I am going to make a softer coloured quilt and am only using red shirting as backgrounds.
I have emailed a number of patterns and they are all the revised copy, have fun stitching and maybe share an image some time.

I have copied my Basket pattern four times and taped it to one sheet and am using Freezer paper sheets to copy the pattern, makes it all a little faster and easier. These sheets are in a pack of 50 and great, I only put one at a time in the laser printer and it works fine.
The freezer papers can be used a number of times.
At the retreat I made two skirts for the Girls and they are fully reversible, I have also crochet a dew Beanies, Deidre the pink one is a new one for Sarah's little one, hopefully I get the size right.

Basket Quilt

Hi all

Well I have seen a few Basket Quilts happening and thought I would like one too. I started at the retreat drawing a pattern and stitching.
They are 6" finished blocks and I am having fun.

If any of you would like to make one too, just email me your snail mail and I put a copy of my Basket drawing in the post for you as a little giveaway.

Happy stitching
Christine
