The Olympic Post

I've not kept up with my intentions already. I've been too busy watching the Olympics to post anything. Hasn't it been fantastic, I've been hooked. Shame the interest hasn't been translated into me running round the block or cycling or swimming for that matter.

I have made a few things in the last 2 weeks.

Firstly. I made these 2 ET phone home blocks.

This one was for practice and can go towards my star quilt.

 This second one is for Sue Bone  Miss August in FQ Kinky Bee.

 I also bought this quarter inch foot

I wish I'd bought it years ago, it has made life so much easier.

I also bought this walking foot

I haven't tried it out yet, have to finish a whole quilt first!

I have also been a busy bee on the soap front. I made two loaves of oatmeal and honey and one of gardener's soap.

These have now been sliced up and placed in my cupboard to 'cure'.

I have also started a new baby quilt which I will post next time when I have finished the whole top.

I spent Friday evening and all day Saturday helping my daughter move into her new flat in Notting Hill.She used to live in Hoxton so this is a whole new experience. I hope she'll be happy there.

Off to view the closing ceremony now.
