On the mend.

Hi everyone,
Thank you for all the get well emails.
I am sorry I had to cancel last weeks classes but I totally underestimated the op I had.
I have never had stitches before no idea
what it would feel like, it doesn't help that it's in the middle of my back.
Gosh the brave girls who have major procedures then arrive in class a month later! Amazing.
Anyway my problem is over apart from having all the stitches out... Does that hurt!
I must also up date my emails as some of you did not receive the email, my apologies girls.
Let's get back to sewing!
Block five and six are ready for September.

 I got the gorgeous cat fabric from Quiltsmith.
 Nice easy appliqué block.
Kelly who is doing correspondence BOM
sent some nice photos.
They are lovely Kelly.

A few photos from the girls in my Glenbrook class.
How cute are the thirties fabrics.

I never get tired of the blocks from Birds and Blooms.
Elvis is back!
A bit Alfred Hichcock.
I will catch up on my emails today too.
Sorry for the delay everyone.
I just want to say thank you to my friend Helen, she's the girl who turns up with flowers, food and friendship and doesn't even hint that you look awful!
Take care everyone, back on the road Saturday.
Karen xx

Block of the month.

I am so impressed everyone has done their "Friendship Quilt" homework.
Here are the pictures of blocks three and four.

Our first row is now complete.
Wendy has finished her marriage quilt.
Hand quilting around each shape was enough quilting.
It's beautiful congratulations Wendy!

Lorraine has also finished her top.
Anyone needing help with fabrics I will be teaching at Quiltsmith tomorrow then Patchwork Plus Thursday and Friday.
Best get my printing done.
Have a good day everyone,
Karen x
