Hello there, thanks for popping by…
Well it’s been a good long while since I posted, but life bobs along up here, much the same as it has been doing for much of the year, my two Teenagers both passed significant birthdays this year, and Hubby and I celebrated our Silver Wedding in May too so it’s been a very busy first half of the year…
I’ve always managed to get some crafting in though, and my attention has turned, as it always does, in the summer time, to Patchwork.
You may remember the start of this quilt, a couple of years ago now? I’m making it in English Paper Piecing, in memory of my Mum, who passed away in 2015. It’s really starting to look like a quilt now, isn’t it? 😊
One of the things I love about hand sewing is how portable it is.
This was on a trip out to the seaside a couple of weks ago….my lovely friend is modeling here, and we spent a lovely half an hour or so gazing out to sea and stitching. It was heaven! 😊
Here I am again, out in our garden during this lovely summer we’re having in the UK at the moment. This gorgeous day to day sunshine is practically unheard of and I’m really making the most of it and stitching outside whenever the oportunity arises. 😊
I’m very active on Instagram if you’d like to see more pictures of my ‘summer of stitches’.
I’m ‘happyjustcrafting’ just the same as on wordpress. It would be lovely to say hello… 😊
That’s all for now though, I hope you’re all having a lovely summer wherever you are, and until next time, I’ll keep crafting, and I hope you do too…
