Where did the time go?

I can't believe it is already mid-April! I haven't been blogging but I have been quilting. I've been working on three projects, all of which have advanced, some more successfully than others. The first project, and the one I have finished with, is a group project that one of the women in my craft group… Continue reading Where did the time go?

This quilt was a bit of a roller coaster. For those of you who have read my earlier post, I decided that the reindeer offered the best combination of possibility of success and being something that I could imagine hanging in my apartment.

A few friends and I took a last-chance-before-lockdown outing to Dor Habonim Beach… Continue reading A Holiday Outing

Finished and Ready to Gift

I seem to have lost track of time, and suddenly it is a month since I last posted. In fact my quilt has been finished for a week. I started it as a practice making stars and intended it as a toddler quilt. I may have gotten a bit carried away.... One of the things… Continue reading Finished and Ready to Gift
