My Quilt has Grown a Bit

Good evening to each and everyone of you.

As the title suggests my quilt - or at least the Quiltmaker's quilt has grown somewhat this week, I think that now the blue is out of the way my enthusiasm for this one has grown too.

So here is how she is looking at this moment in time.


I do wish I was better at taking pictures of my work, they always look slightly blurry I'm afraid.  However as you can see there is not a great deal of quilt left to do.  I am hoping this will be completed before the year is out but I guess that will depend on how much stitching time I get between here and the end of the year.  Maybe I am being a little optimistic but I shall do my best.

I meant to share the pictures of my Grandsons advent I made, but forgot last time, so I am showing them to you now.



 
This little draws are all full of sweeties now ready for the 1st of December.  I wanted a little duck to put on the pond but unfortunately I couldn't find one, so alas it will remain duckless lol.
 
I know my mum doesn't get on a computer nowdays, though she used to love reading about my stitching progress here in blogland.  So although she will not see this I want to wish her a very happy 87th Birthday for tomorrow.


This picture was taken last month by the team from the Derby Evening Telegraph. A Jazz band had been playing at the home she resides in and when they were finished she wanted to have a go, apparently she only made a funny noise lol.

Well that's it from me for tonight.  Thanks for visiting you are always welcome.

Hugs

You made some nice progress on the Quiltmaker. Such a beautiful design. I have pulled out mine but haven't managed to put a single stitch in it. So many other things got in the way, lol.
A great advent calendar you made for your grandson.

Great stitching Helen, and I love the advent calendar box. Have you tried The Early Learning Centre for your little duck, they do all kinds of little plastic farm animals?

The Quiltmaker is looking beautiful and well done on the Advent calendar made for your Grandson, it looks great!!

The Quiltmaker is beautiful and so is the advent box. I'm sure it will be treasured every year.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and checking out my paper shelves the other day, and for your sweet comment! I'm sure my neighbor would just love to come to the UK to build some for you too! Haha! I'm really lucky to have them right down the street from me!

You have a lovely blog. I can't wait to look around some more. I hope you start posting again!
