I have been so slack at blogging,  I'm surprised there is anyone left following me!  So a huge thank you to those who continue to read and/or comment on my posts.  You are a very tolerant bunch!

I have not been keeping up with my sewing commitments either - firstly I failed to complete the first Alphabet Challenge, and, having signed up for the May FNSI, didn't manage to work on anything.  Most importantly my  SKoW quilt is nowhere near where it should be up to.  Hopeless!!   I have, however, completed my mini quilt for the 12 inch Mini Club Swap, although I was supposed to put up a post about it yesterday and didn't manage that!

The pattern I used for my mini quilt is Lynette Anderson's Our Home Pillow design.  It ended up being more time consuming that I had anticipated, but I think I have now perfected french knots and lazy daisies!  I am very pleased with the result, and now I can finally say I have made a quilt, albeit a rather small one :-)

I love the topiary trees! 

I hope the recipient of this quilt will love it as much as I do.  A big thanks goes to Cheryl for organising this swap and I look forward to taking part in another in the future.

Have a lovely weekend.
