little stitched flower

Maen brav heddiw yndydy? (something like's sunny today isn't it?... and for any welsh speakers out there I haven't got my dictionary to hand to check spellings! )
I really enjoyed making this little flower. Embroidery skills are a bit rusty but french knots do add easy to do too. Thank you Sarah for giving me the inspiration to have a go. Just looking at my quilt these days. Must get on with it! Tan tro nesa.

fabric flowers

Bore da everyone
It's been a while since I last posted a blog. Things happen! However I am still quilting the massive purple quilt and I'm getting there.
My latest interest is in fabric flowers. A great way to use up tiny bits of fabric. The photo shows where I am up to. I stitched the petals by hand.
I was at a Spring Festival yesterday in our village Llanasa trying to drum up support for a new Craft Group that a friend and I have established and was able to carry on stitching. It's the sort of thing you can put in your handbag and pick up when travelling or watching telly. If you would like to see a completed flower got to and  press on accessories. Type in humblecraft and Sarah Meelans gifts should appear one of which is a lovely fabric flower. Whether mine will look as good as this when completed who knows but when I have finished it I'll show you!!
Cwm'wch ofal and tan tro nesa

Happy Easter

Well this is my first blog for a while so apologies to my loyal followers! all four of you! The heather coloured quilt is well on its way to quilting completion but getting to that point has not been without its problem. Having begged borrowed and stolen umpteen quilting patterns, nothing jumped out at me so when faced with choices my view is to just keep things simple so the piccie below is the pattern I eventually  came up with. Simples!!
