Projects-Past and Present

After a weekend of trying to upload photos I have now managed to add a few but in a complicated way. I obviously need to engage the help of the younger generation for some tuition.
This is a quilt I finished recently for a friends daughters 21st, a girl I have known for many years. I had made one for the older daughter with the brief of blacks and brights(totally my comfort zone) but this one was for pastel blues and a very plain pattern. With the said family being in New Zealand it was a guessing game as to whether I would get it right so it was a relief when it was loved by the recipient.

This is a half square triangle block arranged in a zig zag pattern. It is on the design wall at present as a current project for a quilt for the Bushfire victims.

This is a machine embroidered design by Loralie Designs and it is destined to be part of a Tote Bag. Hopefully I will be able to get started on it today.
I am a person who has a number of WIP at any one time which is not always a good thing but it stops getting bored with any onw project.
The sun is shining gloriously here in Brisbane so we are in for a beautiful day. Hope you all have a good one as well.
