I've been slaving away and trying to meet my self imposed challenge.
So far I have one more quilt basted and waiting to be tied.
This one is going to a little girl in the UK who has just celebrated the first anniversary of her bone marrow transplant.
Then we have another quilt waiting to be be basted.
I've grown very fond of this one. It's the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning.
Then we have my huge string quilt.
Whoops! Didn't realise that a corner had flipped!
Each 1/4 block is 9" so this is going to be BIG! It takes me about an afternoon to do one complete block. I managed 1 and 2/3 today and have got another 4 complete blocks to do.
When it is finally done you'll have to flip over to the Quilts 4 Leukaemia blog. I'll let you know when.
So far I've completed 3 quilts and with 2 in the making that makes 5 done and 4 to go (the one above doesn't count. Yet!).
I've also extended the date of my Challenge until the end of April. Spring is on its way and the garden is calling. The Wisteria needs pruning and there is a lot of stuff that has got to be moved or removed! I've yet to update my sidebar, but keeping watching it. The date may change again.
Mimi Pipette/Poucette is doing fine. Gaining in confidence every day.
I somehow managed to lose the SD card for my camera today (goodness only knows where it is). The inbuilt memory only allows 5 captures at a time so this is the last photo of the day.
We've decided to kick the old fashioned desktop (5 years old!) into touch. It's still with us and being used as a music player/recorder etc, etc, etc.
The Young One and I now use a cross between a laptop and a Netbook. It's downstairs in the kitchen and we love it. The only problem is I'm standing up/crouching to use it and it's not doing my posture any good.
I promise that photo is not posed. That's how it is.
The cotton reel is there because I'm doing a search for the thread that I like best. The coffee cup? A long story but I love it and it's staying put!
Just before I sign off.
Someone recently gave me an blogging award. A Very Nice One. She sent me an email and I looked at her blog. Now I can't find the mail or the blog link. If you, nice personnage, are reading this could you contact me again. Thanks.
