Getting Going

After my New Year´s slump of two weeks, I´m getting going, although dubious as to exactly where.  An aggressive flu epidemic has saturated our local hospitals with over 1000 new cases every week and relegated all but the young and intrepid to the secure walls of home where one may safely watch the world go by from a closed window which one dare not open incase the mighty virus enters.

 I have been making a bit of progress this week on `The Good Marriage´  by Lizzie Kate which I began last week and  then I opened the Dreaded UFO Drawer wondering if just taking a peek at the Never Ending quilt would motivate a continuation.... it did not.    

This quilt was started about four years ago inspired by Leanne Beasley´s Journey of a Quilter and includes various blocks of hers.

Apart from patchwork blocks, there are applique blocks and quite a few embroidery designs by Bronwyn Hayes.

And crazy quilt stitches

All the actual blocks are finished but a lot of small stitching details need completing.  I even bought the surrounding border fabric years ago, so I really have no excuse not to get going in this direction.

Grow your Blog Party

Just a reminder that next week on Saturday 25th January the Blog Hop begins.  It is sponsored by Vicki at and sounds like a good way to discover new blogs, meet new bloggers and increase your followers.  A lot of participants will also hold a giveaway (me included)  so do visit Vicki if you would like more information.   See you next week.
