It's good to be back......

hello there.......

My replacement laptop has arrived... woohoo..... of course this all entails links, and downloads ... blah blah blah so will take a bit of getting used to..... 

really is amazing how efficiently it all was done, I had to post my old one then they post back the replacement... all done within 2 weeks in spite of present postage delays.... 

New phone arrived within days....

So there we are... and of course it meant I had more time to sew!!! especially since we are still not doing too much with regards outings and sew days...

I sewed the blocks together and added borders to this little quilt made from left over HST's I had....


I think it makes a pretty little baby quilt

April blocks have been stitched to my Wish you Well BOM.  There is still a bunch of little circles to applique and then I can put the first few months blocks together.  

I want to do that before I start on May so I can catch up a bit first.


This stitchery is for a banner designed by Natalie Bird.  It comes preprinted so was perfect when I needed some handsewing without the prep work.  There are 6 more stitcheries to do for this set.


... and I have sewn the two little birds onto the centre medallion for this quilt, also designed by Natalie Bird.


I have been lucky with shutdown that there has still been some quilt jobs to be done, and more are coming in now that people can get about a little more.


Have missed blogging and linking to other blogs... .hope you are all keeping well....

Righto, Gotto Go.... need to see if I can link up with my emails now..... sigh

It is amazing at just how much time we spend on the "net" and amazing how much we achieve when it is not there. Lovely projects.

Lovely to have you back :) but it's good to have an enforced switch off so you can just get on with things :)

Good luck with the linking up and resorting. Your applique and stitcheries are beautiful and the baby quilt is gorgeous.

Good to have a nice new one to play with. Love the sweet baby quilt and both hand projects are beautiful xx

Janice said...

It looks like hand sewing has been your choice at the moment. Lovely stitcheries and your quilt centre is gorgeous. New computers and phones take a bit of getting used to, but I’m sure you will appreciate them once they are sorted.

So good to hear from you again and I'm happy for you that all your electronic connection issues have been resolved. Those HSTs do make a lovely baby quilt. Love your stitchery and the applique birds are adorable. ;^)

We depend so much on the quilting community we find online, so it's important to keep your machines and technology up to snuff! Glad things are rolling along for you again :)

I am pleased you are now back on deck with all your electronic devices.
Your little quilt is very sweet. And it appears you have been very busy with all your hand stitching. Gorgeous.

Glad you got your new laptop up and running! I have a bunch of my leftover HSTs spread on the floor of my sewing room waiting for inspiration....I had seen your exact layout and loved it so now I love it again!

It would have been a relief to get the laptop sorted. It does look like you are keeping your hands busy - those are all lovely projects you are working on!
