Rain, Rain Go Away!

Happy New Year to you All.

Lazy holiday days have moved on now and tomorrow I go back to work, how quickly the days at home have gone.  Anna has returned home too, and she made good progress on her quilt, and she did it all herself.  I was really pleased with her efforts, particularly for someone who had never sewed before.  Here is a bit of a snapshot of the making of her quilt....

She placed the squares...

she practised on the machine with scraps first

she sewed all the squares  together.

The seams were very good and were matching perfectly as the rows were sewn together.  Sadly that is as far as she got.  Next visit she will do more to have it finished to take home.
It's been a particularly nasty day out there today, rain has come down in buckets, and forecasters are saying we will have this for a good few days yet. Oh yay!!!  One thing though, it is great for crafting.  I have not done as much as I had set out to do.  I will update progress next time.
Thanks for dropping by, I do love to read your comments.

Anna is doing really well with the quilt. Must be genetic! LOL.

Would love some rain here. We now finally have hot weather and tonight is thundery & humid. Ack. I'm trying to cook some little quiches & sweating my head off. Hate that.

Anna's colour choice is just perfect and I can't wait to see the finished quilt.

Anna's quilt is going to be beautiful. Isn't it great to see non-sewers start something like this :-)
