Fabric Choice

Well just to keep you updated with my quilt ... the fabric choices have been made, I have bought my wadding and I've picked my pattern.  Nothing too complicated, I need this to be as simple as can be, and it needs to motivate me to do it :) The pattern is from the Material Obbsession book, which just has the most gorgeous pictures in it ... it's one of those that each time you turn a page, you fall in love with the next quilt more.


Anyway - I'm ready to go.

I aslo want to show you a layout I did last month of hubby - The photo was taken on the day we went to Buckingham Palace, and the train was packed - goodness knows what people thought of me, sitting on a seat taking photos of this man lol.

I'll be back later this week too, I know shocking huh .... but I've seen on quite a few blogs recently, they've shown their month in pictures - well I have so many pictures from last month, and I thought it might be nice for me to look back on too.

  28. LOL at the photo of your husband Sandra. *Ü* Not that he looks funny or anything like that but that you have done something that I would do and it's fun to 'people watch' when there is a crowd! LOL.
    Regarding melting jelly without water. Place your jelly in a plate and put it in the microwave oven (if you have one), for just 1/2 minute or a few more seconds but not for longer in case it burns. You can always put the jelly in a bowl over a pan of hot water. HTH. ~Glen~
