Last year I swapped sampler blocks for several months with Diane of the Cheshire Quilter blog and I finally decided what to do with the 6 super blocks she sent me. I never thought it would make a quilt but with the borders it has come out at 3 feet by 4 feet and I am really thrilled with it.
Thanks so much to Diane for making these blocks and I learned so much from making her returns.
This table runner was started 2 years ago and I have finally finished it.
The fabric is Tim Holtz Ecclectic designs for Coats and the instructions can be found in one of Missouri Star Quilt Co's video tutorials. Believe me, it is so easy to get this one together, even though it looks complex, and the videos are a great step by step learning process.
Each Friday I try to join in with Friday Smile over at Annie's blog and nowadays it seems it is the main incentive to make me post on my blog.
It's a great start to the weekend, it's fun, I have got to know quite a few really lovely people and we have shared so many laughs. Why miss it!!??
This week, this is my main reason for smiling as each time I see this special drawing on my wall it has me beaming. It was made for me by one of my grandies (aged 6) who knows how much I love giraffes and also purple. Perfect!
I love all the children's art work so much.
Early this year there was a radio appeal for BBC Radio Merseyside listeners to make fabric, paper, knitted or crochet poppies to create an installation after the "Weeping Window" poppies outside St George's Hall moved to their next location. Our group responded and made quite a few and, along with other people in and around Liverpool, the collection was put together to create this striking display.
It is now on show in the Royal British Legion drop in centre in Williamson Street (off Church Street), right in the heart of Liverpool City Centre, in tribute to the service given by so many during WW1.
We are pleased and honoured to be a part of it.
How would you like this as your local pharmacist? (Or Apoteke as it is called in Germany)
I went inside just for some paracetamol, during my recent visit, so I asked if I could take a photo.
The staff were so friendly and even offered me a bottle of water to take the medication.
In the days when old fittings are ripped out and discarded, this place is historical treasure.
