Lucy Boston The beginning

Dia Duit, On Sunday it was a great day to wash my stash of Lucy Boston Stash Fabrics .50 fabrics in total including the main colours and background fabric of white. I am itching to start but have two projects to finish first.When we were in the States we went to the Texas Quilt Museum which had an exhibition of white/red/green quilts. I fell in love with this colour way .Slan Ofaigh

Drop in the Pond a new pattern

Dia Duit,  I have been busy this past week with two more blankets made. I am so keen on crochet I Have joined a crochet group at our local wool store on a Friday afternoon. My keeness is yet to wan however, I am worried about my sewing mojo leaving me completely.I have so many more projects I wish to attempt, mayhap I am worrying for nothing.Slan O'faigh

A Sail Maker in the making

Dia Duit, recently one of DH car buddies requested me to make some Sails for his miniature Couta Boat. I am not so sure about some of his measurements, they seemed out of whack to a layman like me.To be sure , to be sure I made two sails, one with car buddies measurement ? And the one I think it should be. Now I am on the hunt for an eyelit punch to complete the job. The things a quilter is asked to do....grin....we are having technical issues with our iPad pc and phones. We have converted to mobile phones and iPad with no landline or pc.........hmmmm would you believe DH has used our months data in a week.......I am a little frustrated with the whole thing hence some of my responses to your kind comments have failed, my apologies Slan O'faigh
