Gosh it has been a busy week..

hmmm it has been rather hectic, but oh so much fun!
 this bright breezy Dr Suess quilt is for my brand new - well 4 weeks old now - baby of my lovely niece Emma. Yep, 4-5 weeks old and just tipping the scales @ 71/2lbs, so a teeny tiny model
 this lovely bright one is for a very good quilting friend from our local group who very sadly lost her battle with cancer late last year, our group has been rather busy working through her stash making quilts for her grandchildren. So these are my 2 finishes for February OPAM... and I made a couple of journals also, but haven't managed to take photos yet.. on the to-do-list!
 and I have been rather busy eating plenty of these fresh goodies... off my good neighbours tree... must plant a few at our new home, they grow ever so well up here. It has been a plentiful year with beans, plums, pumpkins, courgettes, tomatoes and of course the usual lettuces, potatoes, spinach etc
 and a blog post is not complete without an update on our delightful leggy blonde.. my she is growing very fast. I can't imagine a time when she was not in our lives...
and this was on my (new) quilty machine.... all done and dusted now, along with 2 other mates, I thought I had photos, but cannot find them so maybe not... another time then,,
so, you see, I have been rather steadily busy - great fun!
how was yourweek?

lovely pics of what you have been up to. What a lovely idea to make up quilts from your friend's stash. It looks lovely!
Those peaches look yum, nothing beats home grown.

Oh Emma will look so lovely snuggled under this beautiful quilt - precious.
What good friends you are making quilts for your friend's grandy's - they won't forget their Gran's stitching friends.

Shiree please don't tell me you're a domestic goddess too and bottling peaches - you'll put me to shame??!!

What a great and busy week. The Dr Seuss quilt will be timeless - all kids love his stories. And a wonderful gesture for your friend - it's what I hope will happen to my stash and quilts when the day comes. You're a good friend.

Hi Shiree,
Well my week turned to two, to three to a month. Been out of blogland a while, but its healthful to be back. Quilts, puppies and peaches. What's not to like?

All the best
