November 6 2013 Quilting Newsletter


Hi all, Iím fighting a head cold at present and have spent part of the last two days in bed. Not like me at all Ė I hate sleeping during the day Ė always afraid I might miss out on something.

But, weíre planning to visit our daughter in a few weeks, and really want to be up and running for that. So Iím doing as Iím told Ė even using steam for my sinuses and honey and lemon for my throat.

So not much sewing is getting done Ė just mooching, tidying up my threads and spending a bit of time on the computer (in between naps!).

Iíve been meaning to get some patterns up on the Sunshine Linus site for all those people who pop in to see what weíre doing and ask for patterns. So thatís what Iíve been concentrating on. I know itís not quilting, but last Sunday I posted the instructions for making the Preemie caps that are used in neo natal nurseries and ICUís for new borns. They do look small, but theyíre supposed to!!
Hereís the link to those instructions: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art171480.asp

Not much chat on the forum this week Ė I didnít get many replies on the process of judging quilts using critiques. If youíd like to add something, please do Ė hereís the link: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=43

So onto my little distractions for you this week. Hope you have some time to pop in and have a look at them.

Cheerio for now
