It has been a long time since I visited my blog so I will post some more in my blog soon.  My husband and I have both had some health issues.  So look out for another post soon.

It has been a long time since I entered anything on my blogspot, but I do want to show that I am thinking about creating quilts and also some nice machine embroidery. Currently working on a guitar quilt. Hoping my son will be able to help put photos on. But there is one I want to show off now

Well this is another Neptune's garden block. I aim to make it into a wallhanging of nine blocks. Can you imagine starfish are one of my "things"? Will keep you up to date as I complete further blocks, and join it into a wall pictur.


Neptunes Garden

This block will join the others I have created in Ken's workshop Neptune's garden. I started this quite some time ago, but I have decided to get on with this and make it into a 9 block wall hanging. So this wall hanging will have blocks made in workshops tutored by Ken, or inspired by him. It has my favourite colour and it will probably feature in the centre. You could be forgiven for thinking I have a thing for starfish.

Neptune's Garden

My workshop with Ken Smith w sas sheer delight. I learnt so much. I have scanned several of my pieces and hope to add more over the weekend.

I have finished one block completely and a second one is well on the way. The work was enjoyable, the company delightful and the feedback on the standard achieved was flattering. I hope to finish my blocks and combine them with earlier ones to work the into a wall hanging or maybe a throw for my bed. I am not parting with this unless the price is right!

While holidaying at my eldest daughter's home I started stitching on this piece. I bought some beads resembling stones and the image just happened. It was so much fun. It is not quite finished but will feature in the exhibition which will now happen in November 2007.I am excited about finishing this little piece. As the exhibition will feature quite a few artists there will be loads of visitors. Looking forward to this very much. The holiday at my daughter's was very peaceful and enjoyable. Jos worked on cleaning bricks which Wilma will use in her backgarden as pavers and I helped her with other things. She finished a review of one of her books which went to the publishers while we were there and we had a celebration dinner with her. We had a wonderful evening.

Kirsten's Horsey quilt

Well, here it is. A WISP UFO finally finished and passed on to its new owner. Now I will start work on her brothers Chelsea Soccer Club quilt.

It will have photos of his favourite players, also one of himself now that he has become his team's leading goal kicker. He is so proud, and so are his parents and grand parents.

Kirsten spent the day with us on Wednesday as she was ill. I gave her the quilt to snuggle up in and allowed her to take it home.
