With a little help from Little Whale I laid out yesterday's progress at Patchwork Class . . . This is a quilt for daughter Tamzin. I FINALLY got to grips with the many mistakes I'd made and put them right, and am now getting it finished at class.
Above and below - a strip of Tam's quilt, using the quilt as you go method, and what's more, my first attempt at machine quilting. I have to say, it was not as difficult as I thought it would be and I am quite pleased with my first efforts.
A close-up of my efforts.
This is the top of the little box on legs I bought at the Fleamarket. It needs completely repainting and recovering but I'm onto it! I woke at 5 a.m. this morning and came downstairs to use my time constructively.
As I bought it - needing a complete revamp.
Current work in progress - as you can see, the new white shows up the very shabby old paintwork. Keith will have to make me up a new piece of beading to go on the front of the grubby door. Now I am away into town for yet more paint (3 lots I need!)
Hello to new followers. Lovely to have you "on board". For some reason I have been stuck on 184 followers for months - it never gets any higher though I must have an extra 20 or 30 who have joined me. Ah well, I know you're there anyway!
