It has REALLY been a while...

Hi There! I'm still around. It has been a rather loooong while. 4 years, 1 week & 5 days since I popped in. Ooooops!!
The gorgeous baby Weeman of my last post, is still gorgeous of course, but is on the downhill run to school next year!! He's all long legs & energy & chatty preschooler now.
I changed jobs about 6 weeks after my last post & got swamped in a totally new, completely alien environment. I'm happy there now.
All in all, life burbles on...
I'm baaack :)

No more tonsils...

As of yesterday, I have no tonsils...
The up-side to this is 2 weeks off work, 2 weeks away from crowds / shopping centres / supermarkets, 2 weeks of rest & recouperation, 2 weeks of having to stay at home & quilt & make dolls & clothes... Undisturbed...
The slightly sore, post-surgery throat is just about worth it.

Quilt top

It's taken a while, but I think this top is done. It was a project I started some time ago, then gave up on for a while. My sweetheart insisted that as it's Mother's Day, I should spend time doing something I love, so I pulled it out & put the last border on it. It's resting on a queen-size bed.
Now for batting, backing & hand quilting...

way, way back, there was a creative challenge...

I am completely slack & haven't put these up before. Sorry Sam, only ... 4? months late...
I had this lovely photo of watermelon slices & the colour magenta as my inspiration.

These are part of my finished creations... placemats.

I wanted to make them each a little different, the backs are all the swirly magenta fabric, so they could all match.
When I go visit my little niece, I'll to get a photo of the watermelon slice bag I made for her. I totally forgot before I let her take it home. It's the red with white dots on one side & pale pink on the other.
