WE ARE...

...saying hello to Sue today... she is joining us as a follower, and hopefully will stay a while xx

I did get some sewing done today.

I AM SOOOO EXCITED! I don't know if you already know this ... BUT... I found this way to make half square triangles , that is SOOOO easy!!

The link I found it at is .. www.dontcallmebetty.co/2012/02/modern I don't know if Elizabeth came up it herself ... but it is brilliant!

You take 2 squares of fabric... right sides together and sew all round the edge..


Then cut in half twice on the diagonals... and you have 4 half square triangles!!...


SO easy I could not believe it! xx

When trimmed to size they went towards making this..(it will eventually become a table runner)


YES RED is the colour for June.. I have just been a bit slow posting!

It was quilt group in Sandbach to night . I took a cake for my birthday.. forgot to get a picture before I went.. and we ate it all!! Whoops x

Keep smiling

Diane xx
