If you found this blog last year, in the midst of my flurry of productivity with quilt making you are probably starting to wonder what’s happened to all the quilt making this year? 2011 has not (so far) been a fruitful year for me, partly due to the fact that I was without my machine for 3 months while it was in transit between Cyprus and Scotland, but things are changing. I currently have two quilts at various stages of production and I thought I’d give you a sneak peak of the completed top of one of them today.
This particular quilt should be finished next week, but it should have been finished today. However instead of having the busy week I intended I spent most of Sunday turning my sewing room upside down looking for 40 or so charm squares I needed to complete it and which had vanished into thin air overnight.
Eventually I concluded the only thing that could possibly have happened to them, was that my husband had swept them up with his clothes, packed them and driven them 500 miles south with him earlier that morning. Can you imagine how ridiculous I felt when I made the phone call to him and tentatively suggested he checked his luggage? He offered every suggestion going, from pregnancy brain (just don’t!) to them being “on the bed” (I’d been looking for 3 hours!) but grudgingly agreed to check his bag when he reached his destination.
And would you believe it, he DID have them! Don’t even ask me how it was possible to take them by accident. He claims they were “stuck to his shirt”! But as a result, I am now running 2 or 3 days behind… Next week I’ll show you the finished article (if husband doesn’t repeat his trick) and tell you the story about the lovely lady it is intended for…
