Long time no blog...

So, after almost a year out of the blogging world I amazingly had some spare time this evening and rediscovered my page! What a year it's been, too much for one post, but I can leave you with some little snippets of what has been happening in my neck of the woods. Most significantly, I had a baby, Harry, who is already six months old! This is him below about three months ago. He is such a happy baby, I feel very lucky.

 Brigi loves him (phew!) and he is a big strapping thing, much to my relief. In the photo above you can see some of a divine cathedral window quilt that I made for him, finishing it about a week before he arrived. Amazingly I can't find a whole photo of the quilt, promise to post it next time. Thank heavens he was overdue, that's all I can say. It was worth the effort though, I think it's one of my favourites.

And last but not least, Brigi has been going so well we get to stop her fortnightly hospital visits for three months and see how she goes. This is her saying goodbye to "her" ward! Clever girl. I hope you have had a good year, next time I find a spare few minutes I'll hope to pop over to your pages. Bec x

Beehive quilt finished!

Phew! This quilt, although relatively simple design, turned into a bit of a monster from its sheer size, and the number of nine patch squares around the edges. White linen was used for the backing, just in case my mother in law needs a break from the colour.

Thanks to all the girls from the Beehive, I don't think it would have been finished for my mother in law in time for Christmas if it wasn't for your sewing capabilities! She loves it and it takes pride of place on her bed in her holiday house by the sea.

I hope everyone had a good break over the Christmas / New Year period, and I look forward to catching up on all the latest in the quilting world. Bye for now, Bec x
