Anyone still reading this ?????

I guess I need to apologise for being missing soooooo long from my Blog.
I have no excuse just a severe lack of motivation I guess.
Anyway at least with all the time I have been missing I should have something to show you.
2014 seems to have been dominated by Baby Quilts 3 made & delivered so far with 2 more pending.
But I did manage to complete a couple for myself, first up the latest finish my Granny Squares made from all my scraps & stash & machine quilted to her usual high standard by the fantastic
 
 
 
The latest Baby Quilt to be delivered to the UK was for a very special I.V.F baby
Evie Isabel
 

The label was Junes design in The Cottage Gardens Thread Club
I just added the words
Beautiful design courtesy of

 
The next quilt was made for a new Family member
Mia Hala
 

 
Fabric for both these Baby Quilts was Love Surrounded by Deb Strain
 
And finally another finish for me a Sisters Choice
 
 

 
The first Baby Quilt made this year was a Chevron made again from mainly stash & a cute
Winnie the Poo design
It was the first time I have attempted this pattern & I really enjoyed it
Great pattern for a boy
This was delivered to a gorgeous cutie named
River Hendrix

 
I also found some time to make these couple of
cheeky chaps as a 2nd birthday present for my Grandson Seth
Meet Erik the Viking & Jack the Pirate
Pattern by the fantastically talented
 

 
We have also had a few family things going on
My youngest daughters partner graduated from the Police Academy
It was a long & hard time for them both but all the hard work paid off
We are very proud of them both.
I am looking forward to October when I will be going to a workshop with the lovely
Jenny Doan of Missouri Quilt Company
at the AMQC in Adelaide.
 
So I think that is enough for now.
I'm glad to be back.
