    Hi Izy, well I am glad to have finished it. Just finishing the border and binding on Rosewood Cottage for the show as well.

    I really donīt know what I am going to do next. I did buy a pattern but now I am slowly going off it. Other GD Alyssia is next in line for a quilt, but that will be after Christmas before I start.

    Looked at Cathedral Windows, but looks fiddily. So I am hunting for something at the moment.

    How about you? Whats your next project.

    Yesterday I finally picked up the crazy quilt I am doing for my son and girlfriend, I have half of it pieced together, on point....that is challenging, I made a boo boo on the set in triangles (cut them all out wrong twice now....) but I can fudge it - thats half of the fun isn't it???????????? I was doing the foot stomping dance yesterday when I realised, as I thought I would have to rip all 26 of them back out in and in the process waste lots of expensive fabric for the second time....but yippee I found a solution (Happy dancing took place then lol) Thats the problem with just doing it yourself and not following a pattern I suppose. I just have to figure out how much wadding to get with doing on the diagonal, and I am going off to Malaga today with John to get some backing fabric as I would like to give them it for xmas!!

    Ooops, thats awful when you cut it all wrong, but you are so brave to be designing it yourself, but you got it right in the end and thats the main thing.

    Good Luck in Malaga, hope you find the shop, I hate Malaga such a lot of tiny streets and so many traffic lights, we counted 19 in ONE street on the way to the Hospital.

    I have been here 5 years now and still canīt get used the the shops closing from 2 till 5, its good they open again at 5 ish till 8 or 9 but I hate that long siesta time they have.

    Good luck on your shop hunting, Rachel told me they are doing some road works (so what else is new) round there so be careful. It may well be finished by now. I would phone the shop and ask.

    Love it, love it, love it. Maybe I can come up with something like that for my great grandaughter, she loves fish and they have an aquarium.

    Thank you, thank you , thank you for all your wonderful comments. I am so glad you said about liking the colours, it was very difficult to get the materials and I thought they were not going to work, but it did come together eventually.

    Hi Lisa (jbstrawbery) glad you are back on line I have missed you. Glad you like it. Think it is just going to be there to cheer her up. We heard last night from her Mum that she is crying when Mummy leaves her at school and wouldnīt say what it was, however last night having her meal she just burst into tears and they eventually got it out of her what was wrong, seems that she is missing her Mummy very much when she is in school. Bless her, think maybe the new baby has made her feel a little insecure, sometimes that does happen. So the quilt will make her feel a bit more secure, and special.

    That is gorgeous/ My youngest grandaughter is just 2 but maybe she'll want a mermaid someday. Did you make your own pattern?

    JCL, yes I made up the pattern as I went along, The mermaid started off as a Nymph and I gave her a tail and added to it. The centre was a square we all did at out Group and is one of Ricky Timms Convergance design and it just kinda lent itself to this design.
