We need someone new....

Hello everyone, I haven't been here for ages have I. There is a huge amount of stuff happening in my life right now and time is just so hard to find. It's over two years since I bought Corliss' gorgeous pattern and started this blog and the time has come for me to hand it over to someone else to administer.

If you're a regular reader of my personal blog A House in the Country you'll know that my  lovely, adorable Mum has Alzheimer's disease. She is 82 years old and I'm losing her slowly to this insidious disease. My time has to be for her and to support my Dad. I will keep my personal blogs so I'd love it if you would come visit me there from time to time..

Right now, I need one of you to take over the admin here. If you think you might be able to do this shoot me off an email and we'll sort it. I'll stay here as a sort of silent partner, just give whoever takes over admin rights. I'm sure that there is one of you lovely brides just right to do this..........

Blocks 7 thru 12

I have all the blocks finished but will show right now blocks 7 through 12. They were fun to work on. I'm already thinking about the quilting. Since this is all hand applique, I'll hand quilt it. I'm wondering have those of you who have finished your quilts, if you outlined the appliques and then quilted between the blocks next to the seam line. Or perhaps the blocks and appliques are so close together that they do not have to be quilted alone the seam lines. What do you think.

Red Wing Blackbirds

I finally finished another block.  I really like these red wing blackbirds and their little nest but I had more trouble than usual with their feet.  I don't think a glass of wine goes with the really tricky applique bits!
