That’s great. Although not a quilt my daughter had seen a mini plush (a large BMW logo made one) and she wanted to win it. It was labelled I think prize seven or eight in the raffle. We were at a mini (as in cars) event and at that time that’s all she talked about (Aspergers). Well. The raffle was drawn, we won first prize (a very large ham…[Read more]
First, I would like to thank Milward and the UKQU for giving me the privilege of testing these lovely colourful embroidery hoops.
Here is what the press release from Milward says about them;

Hands up, for those that hate Christmas, it is okay to say ME. I do, I hate it with a passion.
What do I hate about it?
• The sense of profound loneliness despite being in a room full of people
People seem to forget its to celebrate Jesus’s Birthday ! And I’m not religious..
Top tips from me include
1 house sit for friends who go away for Christmas so you get to see a nice tree for a few days then come home to a tatt free house
2 visit a country where Christianity is not a popular religion, highly recommend India
That sounds like a very good idea..
I don’t like the commercialism of Christmas, and I certainly don’t like the stress of it. The sooner I can get everything prepared and done, the better. We are having a buffet style meal – I’ve ordered the salads and sandwiches, – well, when you could have 10 people dropping in (stepsons, grandchildren and others) it is a lot easier, and it is something that I want to eat. I would have liked to to have Christmas Day to ourselves, and have Christmas 2 on Boxing Day, but that isn’t to be this year. Once we’ve done presents, I like the idea of time doing what each of us want to do. I’m not going to be caught up in the ‘what we should do’ trick – the day is what we make it, and when you have fostered children and young people for a while, you become adept at altering your expectations for the day, and going with the flow. I totally agree with you about the getting into debt – it is so unnecessary, and unhelpful.
I wish you a peaceful, restful, and joyous holiday.
May your day be a good one.
Something a little different from me this month, with posts about Christmas makes becoming the norm, I thought it would be nice to show off a Halloween make.
I enjoy machine embroidery and I enjoy playing and…

My blue on blue Boro inspired project is finally finished, it took longer than I anticipated with life and procrastination getting in the way. With enforced rest time, I was able me to complete…
Lovely finished Boro piece Denise. What I particularly love about Boro is the ripples you get (front and back) which adds fantastic surface design. Your photos show this beautifully.
Thank you. There was a point I was going to bin the lot as it seemed to take for ever, but I am glad I carried it through.
Sometimes things seem to take forever. But it’s always worth persevering and good job you did with this one!
