Slowly, slowly

Well, Blogger seems to want to take eight years to upload an image and I have better things to do than wait for it, so I guess the images will be posted gradually. This is more experimenting. One day soon I should read the instruction manual. Don't know what kind of plant this is, but it's in my backyard and seems to be growing everywhere. I'm sure I planted a few of them - but now there are many. Not that I'm complaining. Some parts of the garden I can't walk for plants, and other parts won't sustain anything for longer than a week. This is strange, as my garden is only slightly bigger than a coffin....

Well, look at this - the other image has just loaded. This is the baby quilt I just finished for a friend. The size, pattern and quilt design is all from my head, though I guess it measures about 1m by 1.5m. The baby isn't due until April, so I have time to make a new one because I don't like this one too much. Especially if the baby turns out to be a boy!! I think it's just the border I'm not that keen on. Again, it's machine pieced and hand quilted - which is such an insane thing to do when it's so hot. I would truly recommend machine quilting... if I actually knew how to do it!

Gawd, you're a fusspot! That quilt is beautiful. I love the quilting even if you did sweat buckets doing it. Perhaps it is a little bit girlie, and you probably just want an excuse to do another. Sure you don't want to keep it for a future little girl????

I post all of my photos using Hello. It's a bit fiddly having to cut and paste if you want them all to appear on the one posting, but they load quite quickly. You can download Hello for free.

It's absolutely breath-takingly beautiful!! I'd give it without a second thought to the gender because I notice the blues right off and it's filled with love....the baby will love whatever you make regardless of colors as long as it is soft, cuddly and lovable. ;o) You do amazing work!
