The last day of winter and the last day of August

I have been very busy trying to finish the month on a high note, as I have had far too many non crafty days.

The last 24 hours I have been without the internet and it's amazing how much I achieve if I'm not surfing blogs and flickr.  Hmmmmm, but how do I reduce the number of blogs I read because they are all so good!

I had an unforeseen trip to the emergency room at the hospital on Sunday night with bitchypoo. She spent the evening on an antibiotic drip because of an infection. Fortunately we got to the hospital before it became really serious.  She is fine now, (after two lots of antibiotics via drip and now on oral antibiotics for the next few days), although she still has some residual pain.  Every cloud has a silver lining, I grabbed my crochet on the way to the car, and was able to spend some considerable waiting time, finishing some blocks for  this project.
I now have 25 finished, only 5 more to go, and then I can sew it together.

My Provence Picnic quilt came back from the quilters, yippee, and I have been madly finishing the binding, so this is going to be my only finish for the month.

You can just see the fleur de lis quilting design in the bottom of the red piece.

Folded with the blue binding showing at the bottom.

Part of the pieced back.

The front and back.

The photos are not great as I took them this evening, and the lighting was really poor. I will take a full frontal photo, he he, when I have a helper to hold it and it's daylight.


  1. Can't wait to see the quilt. Don't keep us in suspense too long

  2. You're just showing off because you finished your binding and I havent.

    Kidding. I know the pain the Provence Quilt has given you , so I'm glad it's back and finished and looking all gorgeous.

  3. I'm glad your daughter is doing okay.

    Cool about being so close to getting all the blocks on the crochet project done. They're so pretty!

    Your Provence Picnic quilt turned out beautifully!

  4. I am so sorry to hear about your daughter having to go to the hospital! I am glad that she is doing better.

    Your quilt is very lovely. I really like the blue fabric. Very pretty.

    Hospitals and visits to the doctor's office are wonderful places to catch up on hand work.
