Slan leat a chairde (goodbye friend)

Our much loved dog Barney died on Sunday.
He has been a member of our family for 13 years.
To us he was more than just a dog.  He was a companion and friend
who wanted nothing more than a bowl of food and water and as much
love as you could give him.  He would happily plod along after us on
his walks and liked nothing better than a swim in the sea and to drink the
seawater.  We will miss him.
Barney (Dawnbreak Ben)
8th June 1999 to 17th June 2012
Thank you for 13 wonderful years.

12 inch Mini Quilt

I know, nothing from me for weeks and then three posts in one day.  Well you know what they say, it's either a feast or a famine.

I took part in the Mini Quilt Swap organised by Cheryll.
Our theme was WELCOME.
I received the following from Pauline.  Isn't it georgous?  Great bright colours and fantastic embroidery.  I love it.  She also sent a lovely notebeook with an embroidered cover and a fabric charm.  How lucky am I? Thank you Pauline.

Here is a sneak peek at the mini I've made for my partner which went in the post today.  I hope she likes it.

You should check out Cheryll's blog.  She organises and runs a lot of different swaps and if you are interested you're sure to find one that you want to join in with.

It's that time again FNSI

It's Friday night sew in again (where did that month go????)
Heidi is hosting the sew in.  Why not join in.

I'm hoping to get some work done on a jelly roll that I have.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

1st Blogoversary and a giveaway

Where has that year gone?  I can't believe that I have been sharing my sewing and quilting adventures with you for a year!!!!!!
When I look back I haven't done too badly.  In that year I've become a bit more computer tech savy, joined in a lot of swaps and made some things.  Not bad.
To celebrate I'm going to have a giveaway.  The following are the prizes
This lovely book which has some great things to make in it

This bundle of fabric (8 fat quarters of pastel spot fabrics)
 The final prize is a surprise

To enter just leave a comment below.
I will leave the giveaway open until Saturday 30th June.
Please make sure that you leave a way for me to reply to you.
Best of luck everyone.
