This That & More

Well here goes me posting, what I been working on well not a lot i have done a few pairs of socks for DH which have been the same colour as previous ones i did a 2x2 rib down to the start of the heel flap then changed in to knit which gives a stocking stitch effect 
I don't think i shared the wedding quilt i did for my DD who got married in October it Red White & Black using The Lover's Knot Blocks with the borders in Valentine fabrics
Donna & Simon's Wedding Quilt 

DD loved it as it even when on honeymoon with them well they did go to Scotland lol

I am working on a flannel quilt it more for DH to either lay on or just cover up with if he laying on the floor so it won't be very big i guess you can say it more lap size here is the image i got from EQ showing the design it uses Broken Dishes Block i will only do 3 across & 5 down as not sure if i miss calculated or the flannel shrank more also if the cut was more generous on some colours either way didn't quite have enough to do 20 blocks i wanted
Broken Dishes Blocks
I am also in the stages of thinking what design & colours i want for a quilt for me as at present i have 2 3ft beds bolted together to make one very large bed we have decided to go back to a normal double which is 4ft 6inches so i won't have to make such large quilts as i really have struggle & not even done one that will do the 2 beds together 
DH came up with the idea & with moving the room around a bit it will give me more room for my quilting as i have a table i sew on in there but once i get to the stage where all 3 layers are together then i been doing it in the sitting room on a fold-away picnic table i may be able to set it up in the bedroom once we done the changes so i can set it up when i get to that stage & leave it up to i finish it without having to put it away every day.

Here is a friend's  blog  which you may like to go & see & even follow

Thumper 12th Feb 2012
My eldest DS said who looks the saddest Kayleigh or Thumper lol


  1. What a lovely wedding gift; I love it. I'm just starting one for my youngest son who is planning to marry in August 2013. Still a long time, so maybe I'll be able to get it done.

  2. What a great compliment that your quilt was even taken on honeymoon with them. They obviously loved it.

    I think Thumper looks adorable, but do see what DS meant in the comment about who looks the saddest!
