I'm not one for sitting still for long, so it's been fitting in some craft around housework & the mundane stuff, but alternating what I do, which helps with pain management. The garden is being quite neglected though. Just a few photos of what has been keeping me busy.
These 2 are going to wing there way across the skies to Yorkshire next week, hopefully, after I've made some labels. My youngest two nieces (sisters), have both given birth recently to baby boys & it's been lovely to make these. I've actually got a third one to do now, as my Doctor is also expecting. What do I let myself in for?
The quilt above is called "Owling Around", which I designed to use the owl fabric I had on hand. The quilting pattern (above right) is Oscar Owl.
I've also had another one on the machine in the trio of quilts I named for three of my granddaughters who live here in Oz. It just needs it's binding now, but I'll give you a sneak peek.

TRYING TO BE ARTY!!!!!!!
Out came my tin of paints, which haven't seen the light of day since Xmas 2017 and then came the messy part, but fun anyway.
I'm definitely not very clever, although I've wanted to give this a go for a while.
This piece of pegboard came along with our other items from the Indian Restaurant that had closed down. I posted about the fancy lattice panels, last year, which we put along side the shed to hide our water tanks. I'll be putting some beading (well, hubby will,) on the edge & hang it in the sewing room to hold a few of my tools.
It turned out to be the most fascinating of days with four absolutely amazing Makers. Pity my small camera battery was flat, which is the one I keep in the car.
OK, just a quick catch up & motivation is returning slowly.
Take care & huggles to all.
