I have made a start on another crochet project. I think this might be a long term project, but also hope it will encourage my crochet ladies to try another different block and perhaps a new stitch or two. I think I will join them all together with double crochet rather than sewing them with needle and thread. I think I need a few more colours, so I am waiting for them to arrive.
On Sunday the group I go to on Mondays had organised a trip to Uttoxeter to a Quilt show. The coach trip was made even more amusing with banter from the driver and one of the ladies that organised it - gave us all a few laughs. The show itself was one of the smaller shows, but I did buy a couple of things .......as if you could go to a show and come away with nothing! I made a start on my first project, and was surprised how long it is taking to add all of the layers.
|First layers added...more to come|
I have also started cutting the second stage of my Medallion quilt. I really am amazed that it takes so long to cut these small bits, and if I have a choice of scrap fabrics that can add another couple of days to the process.

I have finished the 'mini quilt' that I am making for a swap, but of course I can't show you that until my partner has received it. I will be posting it off in a couple of weeks as she must receive it by the end of May, and I promise as soon as she lets me know its in her hot little hands I will of course show all. To keep you interested here is the sneak peak I let my partner see...
|What do you think...Log Cabin, Chinese Coins or Pinwheels?|
Have a good 'long' weekend.
