My name is Collette and I am a quilter from Scotland. I have been a patchworker and quilter for over a decade and love to share what I have been making here.

proud as punch

Well yesterday my lovely ladies finished their EPP cushions and aren't they lovely?

I love how different they all are!  The bottom is very autumnal looking!  The ladies did so so well and for one it was her first time using a machine (when making the cushion!).  I really felt pleased when she got such satisfaction from using the machine for the first time.  

These ladies plus one more will be moving on to making a charm square mini quilt next.  I can't wait to get started!

I managed some sewing today and got on with Karen from Blueberry park's Bee a Brit Stingy blocks.  I have another to make but number one is done!  I really like it!  

Yesterday I felt I was struggling with my class bags from the car park to the shop, so I bought a shopping trolley or my "Hoppa"!!! My mum had a tartan one of these when we were wee and she had to bus it to the supermarket and back.  I remember it with affection!  Now I am officially old and have one but it will be for my class stuff.  Much easier than lugging big bags and I don't care what I look like so there! Lol!

Hope all my loyal readers are well and I promise to catch up on all your lovely blogs asap!

  2. Well done on such great class makes. I took a fold up trolley to the FQR because I was carrying a sewing machine and didn't have the arms for bags with all the other stuff in!
