Stone Soup

Havent blogged for a while, get quite disheartened when I cannot put up my photos.

Our Atr Quilts Around the World Stone Soup reveal has been a bit slow- I had taken a final photo guessed it! Will try here.

Today I appliqued 8 healing hearts for the New Zealand mine tragedy. On SCQuilters there was an appeal so that every child who lost someone in the disaster will get a heart quilt.

Anthony's Gift

This was the result of a Batik challenge between DD2 and myself, a gift for her husband's 40th.(5 months late)


With a bit of luck here is my Flora.


Managed to get my photos on the blog but no dialogue- computer dummy eh?
The Rainforest is A3 size, made as a commission for a friend, as this was Take 2 I was pleased about that! The original one got chopped into the UFO postcards for my SCQILTERS group. I,m currently working on quilts for my youngest two grandsons who are 5 and almost 4. I have learned that a baby quilt is best a little large (generous cot size) if you dont want to be soon making a sofa rug in a year or two! Both of the tiny quilts I made the boys are in reasonable nick but much too small now. Their sister's Quilts are much bigger.
Today I spent time with friends making quilts for hospitals/nursing homes, tomorrow am working on a rag doll-love dolls and teddies too.

try again

It has been a while since I last tried to post a ohoto on this blog- I get quite disheartened when I cannot do it. Looks so easy when others do it! Anyway I will try to put up a photo of the Rainforest , made for Lorraine. It is A3 size and is the second attempt- the first was going to be binned but my DD suggested cutting it up into postcards. Great idea, they will also be posted with a bit of luck. the third project was a challenge quilt between DD and I using (mostly, in my case) batiks. This is an overdue 40th birthday pressie for my SIL.
