I Heart Quilts


Well I finally got the finger out & got stuck in to the dutch fabric quilt, here it is on my dining table being pinned & stretched for quilting, my least fav part of making a quilt, although a real necessary job, so you just grin & get on with it. It is worth it though, I guess like blocking crochet pieces the finish is better with patience !!!


On to the awkward quilting, am I moaning too much? Sorry on to the delightful job of quilting three layers on a small machine delightfully placed on my dining table, where by the way i do all my crafting, which has given the table a rather beaten "vintage" look :D. It didn't take too long though because I opted for a simple straight quilt in between the squares look!!!


Edged it in blue gingham and Hey Presto Its finito............................



I just need to embroider the hearts for total completion, I'm thrilled with it as i really do love the fabrics, lovely blues & soft reds, not normally what i go for but hey change is good yeah!!!!



Hearts are one of my fav motifs too, so i'm really singing, not a pretty sound mind you, not a talent i possess! But much to the delight of my children & long suffering man I do insist on trying, i'm convinced i'll have a breakthrough one day, in fact i'm certain of it :D

My friend Evelyn came back from a holiday in France & brought this for me........


Oh but i squealed with delight when i saw it........ its actually a candle holder, I can see it now hanging right in front of my hallway mirror, all lit up as the evenings get shorter again...... blissful!!!
I try to hang hearts in as many places as i can, spread the love & all that...............






Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last few posts, its encouraging & i feel like i've made so many new friends, a real blessing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So Lots of Love  & a heart for all of you
Have a sweet evening Karen X

ps..... is anyone else having this problem...... i published a new post at  17.30 exactly four & on wed 10th & it still hasn't updated to friends blog rolls.I've tried repubishing endlesly hence the different date on top. This has been happening now for a few weeks, i've done lots of different things with site feed etc & then the post updates all of a sudden sometimes after a few hrs then at other times it has taken lots of fiddling round & a few days....really bugging me, any advice????? PLEASE
I think i will have to abandon this blog & maybe try to move to typepad, not sure what to do!!!!!

The quilt is gorgeous. :o)

As for your blogger problems, try going to "new posts/edit posts" and see if it has posted - it might still be in draft form. If it is, click to edit it and then hit "publish". It *should* work - I hope. ;o)

Me back again - I was just reading someone else's blog and she said that Blogger had been doing upgrades yesterday and it meant she lost her post. Maybe that's what happened to yours?

There might still be a draft of it saved, though, so all might not be lost.

Hope that helps. :o)

Mother!
Winnie the Pooh does not normally go on that side of the pillow. Please, put him back beside Blossom and Muff.
See you in 5 weeks :)
