365 Quilt

Here are the first photos of my 365 quilt (from the 365 Challenge idea by Leanne's House). I have decided to make it smaller by putting 3x 5.5", 10 x 4.5" and 10 x 3.5" blocks in each strip. Hopefully it will end up being about 7'x5' (ish). This seems much less scary to me!

The blocks are rather scrumpled but my iron (which never gets used - except for crafting) has decided to die - and I'm not very good at photographing craft things!

I have spent a frustrating day tidying today - however much I move things around I still seem to have too much "stuff" and nowhere seems much tidier to me. The children and "the boss" seemed to think it looked much better though so I can go fabric shopping with an almost clean conscience tomorrow!

First Photos

I have managed to connect my camera to the computer again so thought I should post some photos so you can see what I have been up to! The first photo is of my allotment when I took it over in June 2006. The second is of it now in May '07. I think we have done quite well!

Playing at the allotment

We spent most of the day at the allotment today. It was misty/cloudy but I still managed to get sunburnt!

I've been trying to avoid the housework for a few weeks but it has now got too awful to ignore so I thought I would create a blog instead!

I had started my 365 quilt and had my first strip stitched together and journalled but have taken it apart again as I want to make the quilt a bit smaller. Hopefully, if I find the dining table this evening, I will be able to do a bit more.

My first post - will it work??

A very first post to see how this works
