Yes, a definite improvement on last week. Although I desperately wanted to start quilting my sticks and stones quilt which is already layered what I HAD to do is finish the quilt top for the group quilt. As it was my suggestion to make it, it was taken as read I would be the one to put the blocks together, do the borders, layer, quilt, and bind it.
The lovely Jan has made the label, stitched by hand and decorated with two appliqué hearts. Jan does wonderful hand appliqué, I must try and show you a pic sometime.
This is my progress so far. The process reminded me how difficult it is to make a quilt from the blocks of several different people. It seems we all have different ideas of a 1/4 inch seam and the blocks ranged from 12 inches, to 13 1/4 inches. I admit I took out a ‘couple’ or so seams and redid them and I had to fudge it a bit, but the end product is fine and the most important thing is we all contributed. I had a bit of trouble with the circular quilting and so am taking some out but it should be finished next week for our group meeting when I will hand it over for a couple of the other girls to deliver.
On a good note my little Indi is recovering from her recent illness. She does love my rocking chair. This was taken before she took ill, you can tell how stressed she gets.
Indi is down from 13 tablets a day to 7, and in another week it will be 5. The treatment for meningitis in dogs is antibiotics for two weeks and steroids for about 6 months so it will be quite a while yet but at least she is doing well and more like her normal self.
My other dog Ella is being cut today and we just found out the lady who we booked is the owner of the dog who won Cruffts this year (the most prestigious dog show in the UK), most impressive, hope she has a magic wand. This shows Ella quite nicely but in reality she has and extremely thick long coat which tats up, and does she moult!
