Well, I didnt last long with the ‘blog every week’ resolution. I just seemed to get busy. What was I doing……I’ll have to think about that. Lets have a look at where I was last blog…..27th April! I can hardly believe that. Where have the five weeks gone. I went to Scotland as a surprise for my Auntie on her birthday. Had a great couple of days, but not many photos. This very peaceful scene at the front of my cousin’s house where I stayed.
Then DH and I went to Donegal. This is a pic of the cliffs at Slieve Liag (league). The weather was not great, but we had this cosy stove for the evenings.
A local church held a lovely quilt exhibition in our neighbouring town. There were some beautiful quilts, and lots of inspiration. This is something new for my neighbourhood, and was a great hit. Here are a few pics.I loaned my Scrappy Happy Spring.
Summer has brought new life to the lake in our park. This swan had 5 babies and seemed to be waiting for the other 3 eggs to hatch. Sadly, as I walked this morning I noticed the eggs still there, and the family gone to swim at the other side of the lake.
We also have a family of 5 goslings to add to the growing goose flock.I entered a quilt in the home industries part of our local agricultural show. The first show I ever entered.Am I just a little proud to be acknowledged. This is the quilt that won. It is not well displayed, as there is a window behind it.Th photo doesnt do it justice.
Finally, finally I bought Ricky Tims book and am in the process of trying this technique. More photos to follow.
This will take practice, but I love it. B.
