I have finished Helen`s quilt, she chose the turquoise spot material for the binding and she seems delighted with it. It has received lots of lovely comments on her facebook account where she put a picture up of it, I am not into facebook but she has read the comments out to me which was lovely, mind you very few of them are from stitchers so I suppose it will look pretty impressive to those who do not know about things matching seams etc.
Helen is now back at work, on shortened hours for now and with a new chemo package that seems to be working which is great news. She rang me in tears of joy friday evening as it was the first time for over 13 weeks she was pain free, so thrilled by her pain free days
Blogland have been up the shoot, I have been able to see those from the email I get from bloglovin daily but those that I open from my dashboard have been horrendous, inundated with adverts, have put an adbloc on but the screen kept crashing, this has been going on for 3 week but great news today all is back to normal, not sure what was going on but it has been sorted out now. If I have not commented on your post it is because I was unable to access them.
Also 2 new bags, one made for my trip to the Malvern quilt show but it was not used as it poured with rain all day, no actual quilting on this one, It has a pocket on the front and I have used stitchy fabric for it, not sure about the orange with the purple and pink but tell myself it pops!
This next one is reversible and as soon as Helen saw it I knew I had lost it! so retro she says.
I had a great day at the quilt show and 2 nights in London staying with my good friend Cheryl, will post some photos, have managed to install picasa on my lap top but have to work out how to use it to make a collage seem to have forgotten from when I had it on the old computer, took over 100 photos so it will be fun choosing which ones to share.
