Over due post

 I hadn't realised how long it was since I put a post on my blog - I have to confess to having been somewhat dispondent recently - felt that I have so many UFO's to complete and let it all get somewhat on top of me.  Fortunately I have a wonderful husband - and he listened to my woes - poor Rob!!  So I am going to make a concerted effort to get on top of the unfinished items and try to relax and enjoy sewing without feeling pressured.

Well I have been working on this quilt since before my wedding - but it is finally together - I have done it as quilt as you go - which has enabled me to quilt each block seperately and I made a template and enjoyed myself doing them.

We had a visitor to the shop on Wednesday - and of course I am not at all biased !!  Leo was not interested in the fabric - but the bowls were great to chew on - then he gave Dawn a lesson in how to use our ruler - although his idea is everying in his mouth at present!!

Then I just am so pleased with these - Angela had designed these stockings and was persuaded to do a course here last week - well I kept listening to all the instructions and hey presto I have made four of them.  Dawn has made one and is going to do another.  So these will be nice for Leo and our three little girls this Christmas.

So hopefully I will not leave blogging for so long - I love reading other blogs and find them all so interesting and then feel that I really have very little to say so I procrastinate and do not blog!!

  1. I've enjoyed your catch up Pam and the stockings look great! I think you've probably got post-wedding-excitement-blues. You had so much to think about and now all that rush and preparation is gone and it's all a bit flat. I'm sure your get up and go will be back soon. Leo looks very at home helping Dawn :-) Thank you for your comments on my blog. I've managed to finish a UFO this week too. Piccies soon.
