I have so enjoyed hearing from so many of you talented ladies. Thanks for taking the time to let me know. Its so good to know you are all out there. While I was away I did manage to get a few things done. This is a block that is going to be part of a quilt that will hang in the Arlington Breast Cancer Research Unit in Texas. My Dear Friend Barbara Blankenship from cqmagonline organised it. It says "His Banner over me is love" a scripture from Song of Songs, there are 25 blocks and each one of finished and backed and tied together with gold ribbon and beautiful folddr dior roses. Barbara has just about finished assembling it and it goes in the post today, Monday

This is for my 2nd class with Susan sorrell also at www.joggles.com and I am equally excited about this too. It is very different for me and once again it has a pink theme. My son Callum was called "Pink" by his mates. This, at this stage is meant to be a broken heart and the bit at the top is supposed to be the word pink, not that you can see that at the moment. I want to have some text at the right hand side and beyond that I am not sure. Not that you would believe by these two pieces but I am not and have never been a pink person, but me thinks I am getting to like the colour.
I decided on an other colour scheme for Sharon"s class. www.joggles.com and as pink is the current theme with me I have decided to go for pinks. I prefer the look of this block and know that I have embellishments to go with it. The class is prgressing really well, Sharon is a great teacher and I am enjoying it very much. Living in the country I don't have the chance to take classes so this is the next best thing for me. Infact, I think it is better

It is a long time since I have posted to my blog, the reason being, that it is too hard to look at the picture of my son. We have the same picture on the shelf at home but I find it hard to look at that also. Time will change all this of course. But the reaon I am back blogging is that I have just enrolled in two classes at joggles and am very excited about them both. This picture is my first CQ block for Sharon's class. I have used colours or a combination of colours that I would never have used. Gone for triads on the colour wheel. Red, yellow and blue.Tend to go for beige/cream/gold most of the time but I want to expand my horizons. I find peicing extremely difficult to do and as usual I am not happy with this. But I am posting it here for feedback. So please feel free to comment, thanks
