No blogging but plenty of sewing.....

Red, Black and White charm bag.

Floral Charm Bag

32 Pineapple blocks

Pile of border block to iron.
I have been meaning to post on my blog every day for the last week but I have been to lazy to get the camera out of my bag and take some photos of current projects I am working on.  I am however full of cold at the minute, courtesy of my sister who was full of cold last weekend. It just happened to be the weekend we were travelling to Hampshire to visit my sons grave. So four hour car journey and sharing a room over night then four hour car journey home. So it was probably inevitable that I would catch it. Anyway I have not let it get all the better of me and I have done quite a bit of sewing. I have made two charm bags as requested for my friend lovely gentle friend Judith. I have made 32 blocks of 36 for the pineapple blossom quilt I am making all from my stash. I also have a little pile of half triangle border blocks to be ironed.  So you see I have been a busy girl so maybe I will be forgiven for my lack of recent post.
