Mexican star

Ooooh it is nearly two months since my last blog, this has reminded me of when I used to go to church many moons ago and I had to go to confession, these were the exact same words I used to say apart from the word blog of course, but I won't be confessing any of my sins on here LOL!

Anyway I am still busy beavering away in my sewing corner, and do have lots to show you I've just got out of the habit of blogging.

This is a quilted wall hanging based on a mexican star design, which I loved making. I added some free motion embroidery in the corners, which I'm learning very very slowly.

A very belated Happy New Year to you all.

Happy Crafting xx

Ha ha, I beat you, haven't blogged since last September but started again this week and hope to get back into regular blogging, and crafting. Love the quilt, another string to your bow.

ps. Your penance will be to blog regularly and share some of your gorgeous art work with us.

Well worth waiting for, Paula! What a stunning piece of work. I love the subtle florals putting in their precious rare appearances within the red, and what a glorious design with those curved segments... just amazing.

It takes my breath away. The patience and precision required must be immense!
Paula, I am reading a wonderful novel at the moment with the main character a Quaker and there is much talk of quilting.
Good to see you back blogging.

I'm smiling at your confession memories Paula - snap! Your wall-hanging is an incredible accomplishment - it's truly beautiful, talk about a labour of love. I'm not sure what "free motion embroidery" is - but I bet that you are brilliant at it! Good to see you post. Nicola x
