This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

Things I want to get finished..... Number Two.

A very dear friend of mine has a big birthday this coming Thursday. About a year and a half ago she got married, second time for both of them and I have to say that it was one of the most moving weddings I have ever been to. On the day I collected lots of little pieces knowing that somewhere down the line I would put a little something together as a souvenir. I am going to make her a quilt, but I want her to help me plan it, so I am hoping to have this ready to give her on the day.
I plan to make a small fabric book like the one demonstrated in this DVD that I downloaded from Quilting Arts. I had better go and get on with it!

Before I go I wanted to show you the monster that was on the beach this morning!


  1. But what IS the monster on the beach? :)

  2. I love walking the beach this time of year, still warm enough and no crowds.


  3. Can I ask a rather cheeky question?

    I have some of that sheer fabric, exactly for lavender bags, but I have no idea how to sew them up so they look 'nice', how have you done yours, if you don't mind me asking.



  4. Now we know where Nessie went!lol Now that might have made it home for my garden had I been with you! Driftwood is so wonderful!

  5. Such a lovely idea for the little souvenirs. The sort of thing you don't have chance to collect for yourself.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
