I went to start up the computer on Saturday morning and all i got was the dreaded "Blue Screen", not a great thing to happen at anytime but more frustrating when it happens on a weekend!!!! so we only got the computer back from the shop today...........and i got heaps to share!!!! and heaps to catch up on when i go off and read everyones blogs later tonite.
Firstly, the Family Values BOM Quilt is finished!!!! (except for a final cotton check and erasing the chalk mark lines). I am so proud of this quilt, if i never design another thing, i have this quilt. I pour my heart and soul into everything i design but this one is extremely personal to me:
I am so glad i decided to rip out the stitcheries and reset them.....i love the colours, i love the way it feels.........i dont wanna give it to the quilt shop!!!!! lol Heres a close up of the quilting:
Im taking it in to Sally on Friday and then all thats left to do is write up the instructions for the last 10 stitcheries. She is so excited about it, she got me to take some photos and in Sept.(i think) she has taken out a full page ad in Homespun magazine using my quilt!!! exciting!!!
So after a marathon quilting session, i spent a day or so relaxing with my SBS blocks and "loggies". It was a great change of pace:
Heres Lady of the Lake, Grape Basket, Album and Northwind and for those who had forgotten what "loggies" im working on (it had been so long id almost forgotten lol) here they r:
Ive spent the last few nites stitching and watching TV with DH and i have managed to finish my house stitchery for my medallion wallhanging. I have kept the design very simple because im looking forward to a "busy" setting for this stitchery. Im going to use EQ6 on this one i think but im looking forward to the challenge:
The little saying goes as follows:
Our windows may need painting,
And our roof my need repair, but
Our house becomes the grandest home,
When the family are all there.
Last but not least, I have had a few enquires about where my patterns can be purchsed from....well my LQS The Country Quilter is now online and all of my patterns (except the Family Values BOM.....should be in a week or two) are available!!!
Take care and happy quilting
