Been a while...

It has been a while since I blogged and I'm sorry - I have sort of sold myself to IG (nickyeglinton) which is quicker to post on but I had intended doing better than this on my blog!

Well I have been busy stitching - did you expect anything else?  And I have sort of got carried away by a few new projects...nothing new there!

The most delicious of which is my #nordikquilt!  I set a challenge to my Stingy Bees for August: to make Scandinavian inspired blocks in red and cream with touches of aqua and teal; and they have not disappointed, indeed they have blown me away with their talent and generosity!

Maybe the photos should speak for themselves!

From Sheila

who also sent two extra snowflakes she had cut with her Go! and I backed in some of my fabric!

From Janet

From Di 

And just today this gorgeous block arrived from Helen

But to appreciate the work involved in this one you do need a sense of scale....

And with a few of my own blocks this is how it looks at the moment


  1. It's looking really fabulous so far - what talented bee mates you have, to add to your own quilty awesomeness!

  2. This is an AMAZING collection of blocks. Fabulous efforts by all your bee buddies and great inspiration from your own stitching too. I love watching the progress of this one on IG and will continue to sigh every time you add a new pic.

  3. This is so fabulous! It will be amazing

  4. Looking great, and that one from Helen is slightly mind boggling!

  5. wow wow wow.
    those blocks are gorgeous. I see another fantastic quilt coming together!
    well done to all your clever bee friends.

  6. I can't wait to see this quilt grow! I'm really pleased with how the ridiculous snowflake fits in with the rest, phew!


Hello, I'd really like to hear from you...
