Inactivity?

Hardly! I've just been working so hard to meet a mound of mostly self-imposed deadlines, I haven't had a chance to photograph or blog my progress!

I'm really happy with the foundation-pieced boat I designed -although it will look better once I've added some detail with the quilting. I was also really happy with the different foundtaion papers (Carol Doak's - easier to remove and much cheaper than the EQ Printables I had been using).This is a surprise which should have been done a week ago. The top was done entirely from my stash, so I've better subtract 2m from the total. From completing the design, this has taken 3 nights up until after 2am (note the time of this post!). It is now mostly quilted. I've designed the label (and a few others ready to print out a full sheet), but for now I think I'll go to bed!

Oh wow, I was wondering if you had posted pics of this! I am in love with ryan's quilt, I show it off to everyone who comes over and everyone is jealous LOL. The Nautical theme was very thoughtful indeed as we are so close to the beach and a water orientated family. The colours are WONDERFUL, this is something that he will be able to pass down to his own childen. The label on the back was such a beautiful personl touch (you sneaky girl) an everyone I show gushes over it.

Will never be able to thank you enough for this quilt for my boy. Be expecting loads of photos of him with it soon. Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou XXX
