Sometimes I finish off a project I started ages ago and wonder why I didn't bother to finish it at the time!
It only took me a couple of hours to finish this quilt, and I must admit, it isn't my best work. BUT it was a learning experience, and now I think I would have another go, but with hindsight!
so - above is the top of the quilt...
Below is the back of the quilt
And here is a close up of that fuzzy effect I wanted!
It had to be washed and dried for the edges to fray - it was almost like waiting for a cake to bake, with me running round the house looking for My Juicy shouting "it worked!!!" "I baked a quilt"
My baby brother who lives next door to us with his partner and their 2 gorgeous children, are all off to Wales for a fortnight - this morning he has been messing about with a tiny boat and outboard motor he bought for mackerel fishing last year, readying it for it's maiden voyage ~(well, his maiden voyage with it - I think he bought it off the local scout troop) and he has been popping round to keep me updated with animal care instructions - when to feed the cat, how to handle the hamster - oh, and apparently the Sea Monkeys need feeding on a Thursday...wish me luck! (I forgot he had fish last year...and now he has none.)
