Then my new "friend " arrived !!! I've named her Florry and she is a dress form to help with my new attempts at dress making. She is lovely -very stable and she's got nice legs!! She will live in the spare bedroom when I am not using her.
I have a couple of lengths of material waiting to be cut out so she will hopefully be spending time with me over the next few days.
My triangle quilt is finished !
It is a small baby quilt which I made using my Sizzix die cutting machine. It is a sample to take to the Retreat as I am doing a demonstration for the rest of the group on using the system to make cutting block pieces easier.
One of the other projects I have suggested at the retreat is for the group to make quilts for the Siblings Together project. There is a button on my side bar about this project but briefly it is a UK project which runs summer camps for siblings who are being fostered but who are separated. They attend the camp and spend time together and the project organisers have started to give them a quilt each to take away with them. It has been running for a few years but the numbers of kids it is helping continues to grow. We will try and make a group quilt during the retreat and I will also be sending them my Whacky Houses and Seaside Quilt .
Bye for now
