Still here!

Sorry I haven't been posting very regularly lately. Things have been pretty hectic around here over the last few days. On Sunday we had a very busy day at Church with a fellowship meal in the afternoon. Yesterday we had our parent and toddlers group at Church which was quite busy!

Last night I was looking into gifts for the toddlers Christmas party and nursing a sore throat and cough at the same time! I have, of course, woken this morning feeling pretty naff so I don't think I will be blogging much this week if I continue to feel this way.
I just wanted to share my most recent quilting project with you. I made this one for my mum and it was a hard one for me. The quilting is machine stitched and I done a kind of freehand Baptist fan design on the main part of the quilt. I am not 100% happy with it but then whoever is with their projects?

My mum loves it and it is just the right size for her lap. My mum hasn't been well the last few weeks. She has had a chest infection and has a chest condition which causes her difficulty exerting herself. She gets out of breath really easily. This has been caused by smoking and she has really really tried to stop but struggles with it. I worry about her so much. I love her dearly and worry about how much time she will have with the kids because of this condition. She can't do a lot physically so I worry about this too.

So anyway I am happy to be able to do small things like making a quilt for her to brighten her day hopefully!


  1. Your quilt is BEAUTIFUL! I hope you are feeling better soon. There are so many virus' and flu going around on this side of the pond. Hope you all stay clear of it.
    Blessings, hugs, and prayers, andrea
