The big news is that I finished my Cross and Crown quilt!The Country Yard so I took a few photos before taking it into the shop to display.
I had no more dramas with stabbing myself (see *here*) while quilting. Vireya suggested putting the back-pin-cap of an enamel badge on the upright pin; a great idea, but none of my badges had one the right size - grrrr. However I managed to sort my hands out so the rest of the quilting went smoothly.
I ended up using the Westelee circle template for the whole quilt, doing semi-circles along the edges in the border. I am quite pleased with the effect.
One more scenic shot. Our son's sheep are grazing our orchard at the moment -
I don't think I have shared this block yet. It's another for The Country Yard 20 Year Challenge. The theme is 'Have a Cuppa' -
I've started joining my blocks for my challenge quilt. Here is the top row. I've not used much of the challenge fabric so have decided to use it for cornerstones in the sashing.
It's been a whirlwind 24 hours on the grandparenting front; last night I babysat the three next door while their parents had a very rare dinner out.
Then this morning Odie and family came out -
I'm looking forward to a quiet Sunday - hopefully I will get more of the challenge quilt done.
'til next time,
