Sorry it's Been so Long!

Hello everyone, I am so sorry it's been so long since I posted anything but I have been a bit poorly, all over Easter and I am only just getting better, it was one of these awful virus's and it knocked me for six, never mind I am on the mend. The picture you see is of a quilt I have just finished, I took it around to Kathleens and we photographed it on her bed, I love hexagons this whole quilt was hand pieced and hand quilted the only bit of machining was to attach the binding, it's always a lovely feeling when you finish a quilt.
Well, did you all watch that beautiful Royal Wedding what a lovely day! lets hope they will be happy, I am sure they will be, he is much more of a man than his father will ever be, enough said.

I have missed you and am so sorry you have been sick. Your quilt is such a work of art. Just lovely and you should be very proud. Hope you continue to feel better and stronger each day.

Wow, all hand sewn! What a labour of love that must have been. ½ dozen buttons is a stretch for me altho decorative sewing is much more pleasurable than utilitarian. I'm sorry you've been so unwell over Easter and glad that you're on the mend now. Look after yourself and don't start overdoing things :O)

Lovely quilt and very impressive for being hand sewn.
I'm new to quilting and have not yet tried hand quilting - will I ever get that good.
