Back to it....

Well sorry for being so quiet, it was a concious decision to put the sewing machine away for christmas and have a break but not for it to stay away for so long, but after being ill for nealy 7 weeks in total it took it out of me a bit and ended up with help from the docs to sort it all out, was beginning to feel slightly better during the hols but as soon as i went back to work i hit the floor like a ton of bricks! anyway after feeling better for only 5 days i have a cold again.....
but on the sewing front the machine is out and glad to be back at work lol .....or maybe not when it shot a broken needle at me the other day in protest !!!
but together we have managed to produce these.......
a lovely bright and chearful for spring double quilt which is completely quilted freehand....a little tricky on something that size lol

and then in readiness for valentine these gorgeous "love" cushions and hanging hearts,
the hearts almost didnt make it in front of the camera as the sold very well on the market yesterday

the Love cushions are again free hand quilted

i have a couple of options of what to work on this week,
decision will be made when i return from my walk round the car boot sale.
