I've been working on the black and bright Quilt as You Go. Finishing the Dresden Plate:
Love the spiral in the middle.
Another one, although this went slightly wrong. I made a nine inch block and had to improvise to make it the right size.
The Tumbling Blocks is a design I love but I wanted a more lime green fabric for this. It looked lime green in the stash but looks very yellow next to the other fabrics.
My friend and I celebrated birthdays in June and we caught up at the end of the month. We went to the Sandown Quilt Show which, sadly, is a much reduced show from the ones we first went to. I think everyone concentrates on Birmingham in August. I did but some little bits - notably three tiny packs for £10. This is the first.
I've not been too hot over the past month (well thermally I have been too hot though). I had a trapped nerve which is just calming down now. I couldn't walk, stand, sit or lie - i.e. I couldn't exist, without shooting pains all down my leg and hideous joint pain in my knee. That and the feeling that my leg was a rubber band and I didn't know when it was going to give way. After some intensive treatment from my lovely son I am on the mend and have got my mojo back. It was very depressing and at my age made me worry that I was going downhill without the prospect of getting back to normal (yeah well my normal!).
But here I am - ibuprofen and cod liver oil imbued - and raring to go - until next time.... go safely.
