Trying to keep up

I just have to admit that I have no time for the blog at the moment. I love writing the blog, loading the photos, reading your comments, it is lovely to see the quilt progress here in the sewing room and post about it on line. But I have to take a break at the moment as there is so much to do. My gorgeous girl is getting married in nine days time. There will be a wedding in the country and a party in the garden here later. There will be homemade caterering and cake making, there will be heartfelt speeches and tears of happiness too. There will be a new and fine young man in our family and lots of things to look forward to.
 But now there are quilts to make, a bridesmaid dress to finish, ribbons to sew on a wedding dress and lots of lists to be ticked off. Oh so many lists.....
So here are pictures of the quilts I have made recently, please keep looking to see when I am back, some time in September I hope....

This quilt was made for Liz, who needed to be wrapped up in it so much.
