Good morning, I am sorry your sister is not comfortable with English weather, do tell her to purchase pure wool to wear, she will find it more comfortable. If you want to mail me away from this group I am happy to receive it. Mhill4@gmail.com

I will have to learn how to put on my pictures, bye for now
Hello Sobana, I understand what you say about being slow, I am also not very quick, also I am involved in a charity that takes a lot of my time, and at the moment seems to be so busy. Well, as you try to cool down, we try to heat up, its now coming into winter, so fires on and heating turned up. I dont mind our winters, its a very healthy climate, although some, may not agree, the secret is to wear the correct clothing, and wool is important, synthetic materials are just not warm. We have had a lot of snow over the past three years, so not sure what will happen this year, but the autumn colours have been wonderful. I have been finishing some Christmas gifts, table runners, table mats and an advent calender also some small Christmas cushions, I would love to do something for myself now, but I have always got so much enjoyment giving things with love. We have friends who come from Kerala, do you live near to that place. We live in the North of UK North Yorkshire, its quite beautiful, take care and look forward to hearing from you and hope it cools down a little for you. Regards
Hi. Just wondering how you are doing and how the GFG is coming. I wondered if you saw my post about the new/old way to make hexis. I figured it might be a great way for you since you have a hard time getting the papers, and this way would let you make hexis of any size. I think my friend told me that what ever finished size you want, you make the circle that you start with twice as big. Anyway e-mail me and I will explain if you want me to.
You have done so well, hand quilting, you must be so much quicker than me. I enjoy hand quilting, but also do machine quilting too. I have just been putting together a strip of blocks to go across the bottom of the single beds in the guest room, they are looking rather nice, need to finish the borders.
I see you grow mangoes, my husband used to grow lots of strawberries, but, changed direction with growing. What is your climate like in your part of India. Look forward to heAring from you sometime.
The pattern for the baby quilt is a very easy one. It's an adaption of what I call puzzle piece that a friend did for a guild quilt. It's basically a 9 square but the 2 outer sides are all the same color and made as one long piece rather than 3 small ones. The trick comes in laying it out as you have to decide on layout before you do any sewing (the colors have to match the ones next to it in order to form the "outie" parts of the puzzle piece). The first block has the long pieces vertical and the second block has them horizontal.
Not at all, Sobana. Share them with whomever you like. The first ones are quotes from someone else. The last I wrote after loosing a dear friend recently. I am also sending you a friend request to add you to my list and I to yours if you would like. I look forward to getting to know you better. Your needle work is fabulous. After seeing your Grandmother's Garden blocks in progress, I just may have to find mine and get to working on them again. My Grandmother started them back in the 1930's or so. It will be a treasure when finished. Take care.
I think your idea of updating our progress is a good one! I have one small flower done in purple and the white border around it is nearly complete. I am also in a rush to finish some hand applique blocks for a group project, so I really need to get those finished so I can concentrate on my hexagons more! Good luck to you!
Don't fret. I am not that accomplished. I had someone teach me this EPP at one of our quilt guild meetings. It is quite fun. I have done about 20 of my hex's for the week maybe a few more. I am working on my white ones that will border my blocks. I thought I was so smart to do opposites and leave off white on one set so they would fit together...... when I laid them out they didn't fit... hence I am adding a new row of white to the ones that are lacking. I still have may more sets of colors to go and mine will be scrappy. It didn't sound like you would get any if I mailed you some either. How in the world do you have internet?
