Well here is my Attic Windows quillow quilt finished and hanging on the workroom wall. We are having a workshop at Art & Stitch demonstrating this on Saturday 10th April 2010. So if you are interested in doing this technic it makes such a lovely quilt. I have done them previously with teddy bears in the window or other kiddie orientated themes. Contact the shop to join us for the day.

Poppy asked me to say hello to all her friends, she felt she had been neglecting you for a few weeks. She a little devil and no where in the house is sacred - but ohhh she is so cute just look at these photos - butter would not melt in her mouth. But five minutes before she was being really mischievious. The second photo is her actually sitting on the top of one of the units in the dining room - where a cat should not have beeen!!!!

Well I was going to do a blog about what a fabulous Mothers Day I had - but guess what all the photos have come off the camera onto our free serve external diskdrive. Still I had a great weekend, we took Rob's Mum to Anglesey Abbey on Sunday, the weather was fabulous, chilly, but sunny and the snowdrops well were out of this world. Tomorrow, I shall post some photos of snowdrops because that is what I had intended to do today, but Rob beat me to the camera last night whilst I was at Aston Quilters. Rob has this wonderful programme for photos and he does love to play with the new pictures and put on our digital frame which is nice as we see them daily in the living room.
Then in the evening Caroline had organised her two brothers into meeting us for a meal so I saw all three children and with Rob and his Mum , plus Zoey & Andy (Mark's fiancee and Carolines boyfriend) we had a lovely evening.

This quilt had been made for a friend of a friend for a very special baby who arrived on Sunday, phew I finished the quilt earlier in the week and it was taken down to Bristol at the weekend just in time for the arrival of the young man himself.

Overdue Blog

Well it has been ages since I sat down and updated my blog. I read everyone else's blogs and love seeing what everyone does and then i am too lazy to update my blog.

Well life has been really hectic. We had a fabulous workshop with Sally Holman and the ladies who came did some great work - the one photo is Sally's work and the other is on of our ladies Julies work - didnt she do well.

We had a fabulous meeting of the Quilters Quild at Swaffham Priory - an village I had never been to previously and it was lovely - I took the shop to the meeting so was too busy to take photos.
The two speakers were fabulous and so enlightening it makes you want to quilt more and more.
Angela is away in Jersey at the moment supposedly having a relaxing time - she will update her blog this week. She has done lots of workshops.
Well must go and get working, we have social stitching today and that will be great.
Oh just as a note Anne Stacey is starting back with her classes on Sampler Quilts on 5th June and we have booked her for machine quilting course and some other courses so see our website for the dates.
