Long time coming

It has been some time since my last post!! My mother has been in and out of hospital, and work and life have prevented me from updating my blog. Luckily life, etc have not stopped me patchworking and quilting, and I have some photos of what I am currently working on.

This  is a doll quilt that I hand pieced some time ago from a Renee Plains pattern, now quilted, bound and finished!

  I have finally started to make a medallion/frame quilt, this is my own design and definitely a work in progress!

These half inch hexagons are to be appliqued in the corners, I have completed two and two to go.

 I have even had time to do some knitting. I had one skein of baby alpaca wool after knitting my mother a pair of gloves, so I began to knit Mum a scarf to match the gloves, but soon realised that I would not have enough wool, so I purchased on line from Ecoyarns what I thought was the same colour, but as you can see it has become  a striped scarf.

I have a couple of other completed projects and will save them for my next post (I aim to be a more regular blogger).

Your medallion is beautiful - love the centre fabric! Sorry to hear about your mother - all the best for her recovery.
