Busy, busy, busy ....

I have been fairly busy for the past few weeks so I apologise for my lack of blogging skills.
I have managed to finish the orchid quilt and I was more than happy with the results. It was delivered to it's new owner last week and she was thrilled to bits.


This is a detail of the stippling which I'm glad to say I now have under control - no more looping at the back since I had my Janome serviced and the result is much tidier and consistent.


I have also managed to make my Jack Russel Henri his own quilt for the sofa where he spends a lot of his time in the evenings, snuggled up like a baby!!

This Sweetie Jar quilt is also almost finished and will be a Linus quilt, I have completely finished another quilt too which I forgot to take pictures of.
Today I'm off to the studio to prepare some work for a class in beginner patchwork that I have just started teaching, I also hope to frame up the stitcheries for the 'Take Time To ...' BOM so I can have something to show you next time and hopefully finishing up the sweetie jars.

I will leave you for now with this beautiful flowering Cherry tree which caught my eye in a local park last week.

PS Can you send me the details of the beginners class you're doing, as some ladies in my area were looking for a beginners class and couldn't find one.

Beautiful orchid quilt! And what a great idea to use a jar pattern for a Linus quilt. I can do that.

I invite you to link up this post (or any recently completed projects) to my "Finished for Friday" party tomorrow.
