My goodness, it’s been hard to get back into the routine of posting here. It’s not like I don’t have anything to share, although I haven’t seen my sewing friends for SUCH a long time. The week before this I did make it to class, and through croaking, mime and gesticulation managed to make myself understood to direct my students (they were very patient and caring).
So even though it’s a week late, here’s some show and tell. The girls were very busy in my absence!!
Jo brought along some of her home made chocolate chip biscuits to share – and they were scrummy! (I snaffled another to have after lunch!)Marilyn has her “Carousel” (pattern by Sandra Boyle, Everyday Quilts) top finished, and it’s such a cheerful, sunny version; it just makes me smile.Sue W has finished these two blocks for her “Birdwalk“BOM and started on anotherJo has finished two blocks and we chose fabrics for lots moreCarilyn was bindingDenise is getting all her middles in her blocksSue E has started on “The Welsh Quilt” (pattern by Sandra Boyle, Everyday Quilts)and made this one in classand Carole chose fabrics for a new quilt, to be made with my “Saigon” template.Afternoon

Back soon (I hope!)
Well! That’s been a particularly nasty bug that’s laid me low for quite a few weeks. I’m still croaking and still tiring very easily, but hopefully on the mend. Thank you all so much for your kind words, helpful remedies and virtual hugs; they’ve helped and cheered me. Apologies for not replying personally to you all, but I’ve really not felt like tackling a keyboard/computer.
Now, however, I must as it’s the end of the month! Sadly my ufo activities this month have not been……well, nothing really has been achieved. At the start of the month I cut out setting triangles for “Brompton Road” and had high hopes of getting this quilt top together. Alas it was not to be. And obviously, no progress on any of my others.I’m aiming for greater things in October! I do hope you’ve all had a better month and achieved lots in the way of clearing that list, or at least achieving Substantial Progress with some of your projects. So over to you…….

……Dear Peeps, to let you know, in case you’ve been wondering, why it’s very quiet here at p and c – I’m suffering from a bout of laryngitis.
Should be on the mend soon. I will be back, just give me a few days.
Thanks and hugs (from a distance!)
