A Bit Of This And That

Not to much going on in the way of sewing , but thought you might like a bit of eye candy.
This small quilt was made some years ago and really like the fabric I chose for this . A nice flowery vintage feel to it..
Rosemary made an amazing job of quilting it with lovely feathers which brings the whole thing to life.

Also have been doing a bit of stamping up of fabric and now have another nine Klosjes to add to pile. I still have a long way to go before this is a full size quilt so decided I had better keep at it!

9 more Klosjes
Our quilt group has just started making blocks for out next charity fund raising quilt and have made two block for this .

Two block for the Charity Quilt

Big apologies to everyone that leaves me comments. For some reason blogger has been playing up badly for me and not letting me get back to you.
I do appreciate your comment so thanks and I will be persevering with blogger. Is anyone else having the same problem.?

Until next time.

A Finish and New Book

Here is my Midnight Stars quilt along that Lori put up on her blog last January.

Last year was a busy old year for me but at last I am slowly picking up the reigns again and starting finishing off some small projects.

This lovely new book arrived for my bookshelf this week. Really pleased that my ancestors that left Wales to go to America back in 1800's town is mentioned.(Merthyr Tydfil). My GG grandfathers sister, husband and 3 children set off for Johnstown Pennsylvania  in 1881 and made a new life for themselves. Johnstown is also mentioned in the book .Lots of the Immigrants from the Welsh Valleys headed for there as their was plenty of work in the coal industry . Since finding out about my ancestors immigration I have always wondered whether any quilts went with them. Pretty sure I will never find the answer to this question but do hope so.
