A Lazy Lump

Well, I have to admit it, since Christmas (craftwise) I've been a lazy lump!  I really have.

I've done a little bit of quilting,

a little bit of tapestry

a little bit of crochet

and that's it!  I think it's because we've changed our furniture around and my upright armchair has gone into the best room, so in our sitting room I have to sit on a sofa which means I am forced to loll around a bit.  May have to have a re-think.

I have just discovered I've deleted all the photos on my phone - most of which I hadn't uploaded to the computer, so the things I was going to show, I can't.

However, I can report on the following.  This summer two elderly ladies in the village had to move out because their houses were flooded when a sewage pipe broke - it was actually on the National News - and the whole saga was really horrible for them.

Jackie had the idea of making them lap quilts to welcome them back home once their bungalows had been fixed, so a working party of Anthea, Toni, Carole, Sally, Jackie and me, with Dawn providing much needed lunch and refreshments, gathered in the workshop in November. 

We stitched all day like mad things, and then Jackie and Sandra C and Eileen later stitched all the blocks together.  Finally, on that snowy day in December Jackie and I delivered the quilts:

Both ladies were so happy to receive them - this appeared in the January Village Views

and then I received this through the post

So, well done Lorne Hill Farm Quilters!
