A Week On

Blogging friends are just the best!

A week on from losing our furry gentleman and I have had so many beautiful  e-mails and even the odd phone call that have made me even more aware of how blessed I have been.  Thank you, thank you all many times over for caring.  We still miss Chuck and probably will for a while yet and his furry fan club still look and call for him,59322128_p but time will ease their grief too.


Over the last week I have been sewing up a storm with stitcheries and seeing that I haven’t,  made them into anything  yet I wont share them with you, they were lovely little things to do to pass time when I didn’t want to sit at the machine but now I have to decide just how to finish them for best effect.  I did however get to the sewing machine and had a finish (yeah, another one for OPAM),


These little pinwheels were a dream to make, they just went together with no problems at all and I even surprised myself when I realised that even all the points were just right – amazing!005

I think this would make a great little ones play quilt and as I’ve tried to use a spread of colours so it should suit a boy or girl.

Little Miss Golly was made by me quite some time ago, she is totally child friendly and by sewing every single strand of wool into her head by hand, she is also safe enough for children to play with.

Well, that’s it for this week.  Again. thank you my friends.

  1. Hi Miche'le, Your pinwheel quilt is gorgeous. What a lucky baby!
    This is my first visit to your blog, but even so I am sorry about your old friend. Our animals are such precious friends. Take care.

  2. Glad to hear your heart is on the mend.

  3. I hope the heartache is easing for you. I am sure you will have lots of photos and memories to look back on. Losing a member of the family is so hard.

    I love your pinwheel quilt. Very pretty.
