Not A Happy Camper

Why is it that you can piece a quilt, start hand quilting it then when you put it on your blog for the world to see that's when you see your GREAT BIG BLUE ??
I can see some reverse stitching being done.

UFOs I'll only bore you with one today

I thought I'd show a couple of UFOs but I think I'll keep the other one for another day's post.

I have chosen to show the flower one first it's called" Cottage Flowers Quilt" byAmberwood Country Craft put out by Threads Of Time. The size was 123cm-155cm I did three of some blocks and two of others to increase it to the size to fit my bed.

Catch Up

I have had a really nice time doing lots of hand stitching from a few of the many projects I have started but not finished yet, sorry no pics yet but will get some ASAP of some of my stitching.

I have also been doing some of the thread holders on Blog Land and one of those cute little baskets.
The little guy in the pic is my new puppy he thinks he's my boss and has to check out all my stitching he especially dislikes anything with vilene type backing those must be chewed up and disposed of LOL .
Stay safe and happy stitching

Well I dont know what happened, Blogger wont accept my password for my last blog, I have had to add No2 to the end of my blog name and start again.
Last week I ordered some fabric from "Calico Crossroads" at Exeter Imagin my surprise when it arrived the very next day.
I have been making those lovely little thread holders from "The Stitching Room" to add to small gifts for the girls at our wee stitching group.
I will add photo's when I find my way around flicker if I ever do. LOl
