It is quite some time since I last updated my blog and my a lot has happened in that time. Towards the end of July my DH was critically ill and needed emergency surgery. He is now home from hospital and making a slow and steady recovery. As you can imagine I’ve not had much time for sewing during this time. It is only during the last week or so that I been able to pick up my needle and thread.
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a retreat a couple of weeks ago while my daughters looked after DH. While at the retreat I picked up some gorgeous fabrics as you can see below from the shop in attendance.
I love both packs but the red is my favourite. I’m not sure what I will do with yet, I don’t want to open as I just enjoy drooling over them!
I have been able to start work on the QuiltWest Raffle Quilt, here is the top border, I am now working on the side border. The design is by Robyn Falloon of BonBon Designs
With DH being sick I have to reschedule all my workshops. I will give you updates on the workshops page about my new workshops in the near future. In the meantime I can tell you that I will be doing a one day workshop at Ocean Keys Sewing Centre on October 11th that will cover using the wedge ruler and free motion quilting. Please contact Faye Peskett for more details.
