A sneak preview........

It is just 8 weeks to Pour l'Amour du Fils and the 'official' launch of Di's book. And just this week Di received.........

...a photo of the cover design.

Many of us took our first tentative steps to becoming a quilter under Di's kind and caring tutelage at her shop (Primarily Patchwork) in Canterbury and will instantly recognise the reference to that wonderful, but now sadly closed, haven in the title.  It was there that many of us met and where many lifetime friendships have been formed.

If the cover photo is any indication, then I think this is going to be a most beautiful addition to my collection of quilting books.

Congratulations Di,


PS.  Threadbear are taking pre-orders if you are interested.

With apologies to my "Sisters"

This post is meant to be all about our 3rd Saturday of the month sewing day.  The gathering for this month was at Deb's. Everyone was very industrious but....sorry no photos.  I forgot to take my camera! (I am blaming the hot weather for my frazzled state of mind).  

So, forgive me SSS for being a little self indulgent.  Instead of show and tell pictures from Saturday, I am filling the gap with the project I have been working on for the past few months, well years actually.  I have regained enthusiasm for this project again and began working steadily towards completing it last August.  I have posted some bits in the past but thought you might like to see what has been completed to date.

The design is by Liz Willing, it is called Mrs Miller's Journey and I have finished....

...the centre block
...all 4 of these
..two of these
...with the other two underway
...two of the borders and
...all 4 of the border cornerstone blocks.
I promise to take the camera sewing next month

Until next time
