Things are not working for me

Thanks for the welcome back.  I will reply to you all in time.

My Legend and Lace website is behaving very badly and requires an update.  I have turned it off!

If you have ordered any of the PDF blocks........you won't get them! 

I will over the next day or so reconfigure the Blog homepage so that they are not being offered.  Just have to remember how to do that :-((

So, in the mean time I will give you something else to look at.  I started this hand pieced Trip Around the world last year as I needed s "slow stitching"to keep me sane. It is fabric from my stash again.  It does not seem to matter how much you use out of the stashed fabric, there never seems to be less!  Does it breed?

Something ele that has taken over my life in recent months is this zig zag quilt.  I started using Kaffe Fasset fabrics, but really did not have enough to make the whole quilt.  This is a photo of only half of it.  It is huge!  so, I added some of my brighter repro fabrics, to the Kaffe fabrics.  I am hand quilting with perle cotton, and big stitches.  The appropriate way to handle the size (I think) is to "quilt as you go:.  I have never done this before, but I figured I would work it out.  So far I have 2 halves done.

You probably don't need to see this, but sharing anyway.  This is my DH in hospital in Bangkok.  The rooms were like hotel rooms, and I stayed in the room with him.  WE were here 6 days before getting back to Australia for his surgery.  Much improved now and causing a nuisance about the house again!

More stories and photos to come.....
