Wow! I'm blown away!

I just got one little fellow on the bus, his sister is suitably cuddled and settled on the couch with a tummy pain and I managed a minute on the computer. Oh... the nervous anticipation, will anyone have looked at my site, will anyone like my quilts, what do I do if no-one ever views??? And behold, I had all these lovely comments and you've made me want to run around and take photos of pre-digital quilts and go around to all the people who have ones I have given away to take a photo!

Well, I do have plenty more to show and some in progress, so I don't think content will run out.
I don't actually have a pattern for the chooks on yesterday's shirt quilt, but I will take a close up photo of a block and post it next. I just saw it in a shop and drew the layout from there. I have used it a lot for a simple one block wall hanging for friend's gifts and fetes, I just add, "the rooster may crow, but the hen delivers the goods" underneath and they are very popular.

I've just put a couple more shirt quilt photos on. The on point 9 patch is mine, the other photo is of completed and incomplete quilt tops some of the other girls in my group did during the challenge. (With a shop display in the corner.) We had 2 new girls about that time and this was great for them, they could explore and practise their techniques without that fear of ruining fabric.There was also a challenge fabric, a piece of blue and white Laura Ashley floral that had to be worked into your main one.
Have a great day or night , whatever time it is in the U.S and think of me taking photos for you. (And trying for a Doctor's appointment...)

You are very inspirational to see and hear of your quilts! Be careful though...blogging is highly addictive and tends to add to your TO DO later list ROFL :) xoxo melzie

Another comment (I just had to look at your 'stuff' again when I came home after work) -- When you have time, put a "counter" on your BLOG - you will be even MORE amazed at the number of visitors!
