It’s been a busy time

So I’ve just realised it is nearly two months since I posted anything, but that is not because I’ve not been working on my ‘UFOs’! Easter holidays with family here and then a trip down to my daughter’s to help out along with gardening, playing Bridge and walking in the North Yorks Moors has made life very busy (how did I ever find time to work?) However, in between all those activities, I have been beavering away on some of those ‘UFO’s.

I’ll start by bringing you up to date with Enchanting Stars – I’ve finally completed the quilt top! My last post mentioned that I still had 5 sections to do, but having decided that I would sign up to a workshop in November for another of Jaqueline de Jonge’s designs (Infinity), I though I’d better get on and complete Enchanting Stars. Here are some photos of the stages – and finally the finished top. Now I have to decide how to quilt it – this will be put on the back-burner as there are skills I would like to learn (more about this later!) to be able to do this quilt justice and for it, I hope, to become a bit of a family heirloom.





While this was a very challenging project, I loved putting it together and am looking forward to starting on Infinity. 

Lots more projects have been worked on over the last few weeks – I’ll post more on these soon.
