This blog is a bit of a ramble through my life. There's a lot about quilting and textile arts, a sprinkle of my family life and some of my thoughts and ponderings. We currently live aboard an old wooden 1945 Navy boat, called MV Cerego, so you'll find me writing about that too. Welcome aboard!

Let this be a lesson to you.

If you look closely, the needle actually goes through the pin. Lucky it didn't break and get embedded in the quilt (or me).
So it you think you are clever, and you'll just skirt close to your basting pin........don't try it!
I'm just saying.....
It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye.


  1. ok, eye loss aside, the quilt is absolutely stunning.

  2. Ouch, that looks painful, for the quilt and for the possibility of what it could do to your eye. Beautiful quilt though....says she who cannot quilt at all, sigh.

  3. well the good news is I left a pile of eggs in her box to try and tempt her back and it worked! She was sitting all yesterday and is still there today and she slept there too - so I think I may have a goer!
    Come late summer I'll look around to see if there are any Elderflower seedlings - if not I'll take a load of cuttings for you and we can keep our fingers crossed!
