More quilting

Posted by PicasaOnce again I spent awhile writing my spiel and then lost it! Not sure what blogger is doing to me, so here goes again!
Above are a few photos of recent quilting, edge to edge. mostly smaller quilts, which is great in between the custom jobs. Below is a photo of what I am working on at the moment. Hope to be finished this tomorrow or soon after. Have done the borders, ditched all the applique and finished the pieced blocks, so just the background to go.

 This weekend is long weekend, with the holiday on Monday for the Queen's Birthday.
I hope to get the final border on my Bedford quilt, so that I can finally say it is done, well almost, except for the quilting, which might be awhile yet. But there will be no photos of that as its still a mystery to some.
The weather here is very cold this week, but I guess we have to expect that in June because
it is winter. So that means I don't need to water the garden at The Sanctuary, except for the garden bed in the pergola and the potted plants. Probably should pull out a few weeds that seem to pop there heads up where they shouldn't.
Have been working on the programme for the next 6 months at The Sanctuary and hope to update the retreat page on the blog soon.
Still a couple of spots left for the Christmas in July weekend with Faye Packham, join us for a weekend of fun. Look forward to hearing from you.

So until next time, I shall put the feet up in a warm spot for the rest of the evening.
And welcome to any visitors from
that are visiting. Thankyou Marilyn.

Blessings, From

Jude, great quilts and quilting patterns. I especially liked the quilting on quilt the fourth picture down from the top. I hope you're not working too hard though. Blessings, Marilyn

Thankyou Marilyn,the fourth one down is a winding ways quilt, it was not as flat as it could have been, so used Blooming Feathers smaller than I would usually do to "Flatten" it. Am aiming for a few days away this week with family, so am trying to get a good amount done to make up for not being here! (It's just me in this household!)
