Civil War Sampler Quilt second time around...


Dia Duit, I am really happy with how this quilt turned out.......I made it into a tablecloth and love love the colours. Thank you Dear Julie as they are the fabrics that you sent to me as a Christmas Present......I used a new pattern I purchased from Lorien Quilting feather flip. I did not do the quilting close together as I wanted the quilt to be soft and not hard from over quilting. Slan, O'faigh

I have been spoilt by my beloved..................

 Dia Duit, Rob bought me some beautiful flowers to cheer me up....just gorgeous......

I have had another reshuffle in the house......Quiltness came to visit last week and said Lynnie where is your hexagon quilt......as with most of my quilts they are tucked in the linen press.....I said Nessie it is in the linen press.......that night.....I did some surfing on Pinterest and found our lassies in America have beautiful cabinets to display their quilts............the other morning Rob popped me in the car and we went antique hunting for a cabinet.............it was hard.....I did find a wooden cabinet with pressed steel doors........but it did not fit in with the furnishings in our living room........I chose the 1950 Walnut cabinet and love it.........it has all my special quilts in.......at first I jammed it full and Robbie went crook at me.......so what I will do is rotate them....Slan, O'faigh

A Ray of Sunshine in the shape of a little Girl Elyza Grace...

Dia Duit, last Wednesday my neighbours came in to check up on me.......Jac loved the large Tilda doll and said Lyn I want her...for a baby shower...and of course Elyza wanted one as well..what could I say..Elyza sat up in the chair and chose the fabrics and of course wanted the little house bag as well.......my that child makes me laugh....Rob says that is how you were when you were a little girl and still are..........this morning I was up at 4am and could not sleep and finished off making the small Tilda...I might say I won't be making the little one again.........so so fiddly......We have two little mini foxies...Molly is ok with Elyza but Spot growls at her....so I have to watch him like a hawk...eventually he will get used to her......she is so full of life and her movements are quick.....as Elyza was leaving and going out the door she was poking her tongue out at Spot....it made me giggle because that is one of the things I used to do as a child....Slan, O'faigh....
