Royal Navy Sea King crew at Waddington 2010 #WADD10

My darling daughter doing her top gun thing!

Towelling dress

I'm all ready for when summer returns, just need to go to a beach to try out how well wearing a towel works

I love going swimming in the sea and go most days whatever the weather so this will be a godsend

Border on the birdies and another finish

Its got a scrappy border with leftovers from DD's quilt that were lying around (literally). I'm going to put extra wadding on it so that the border looks really framelike and hand quilt it whilst listening the the radio (Racliffe and Marconie addict Monday - Wednesday)

The tapestry is finished and has gone off to the framers,
Its well out of shape but he thinks it will pull back ok when on the board. Only 10 days left and then I can sign it off as only taking 1986 to 2010 to complete!

Blurred ball

I'm doing some photographic lessons and this is my attempt on blurred motion. We had a bizarre half hour with my husband stood up a step stool throwing a basketball. He is such a sweetie to help me learn.

I'm all set to get some blurred water shots next time I'm at a waterfall now!

Two of the projects that have been distracting me ..

the start of the lovely birds from my giveaway book

and I have monogrammed some towels for us to take away camping. I hate it when DH uses mine and makes it all bobbly and smell of shaving gel ...

My DD's both say my "a" looks like a fish :-(

A little letter block

I used her favourite floral blue to candy stripe the L, all my own design so I'm very happy. The sashing is cream so that will frame the top and bottom.

I have been off with two other projects so the final block are cut out but not sewn yet. I am such a sewing butterfly, not good for getting stuff finished.
