Oh It’s A Shame!


I have several blogs which I read regularly and the ladies who own them post regularly (you can find them on the page “My Favourite Blogs”) but a few have decided not to post anymore because of GDPR!  I know that some of the ladies may be using this as an excuse to end their blogs but a few are concerned about the new rules. 

As I said in my post here you really only have to be concerned about these new rules if you sell through your blog and as a lot of these ladies don’t then they don’t have to worry about it.  

It is such a shame that these rules are affecting such a creative thing and hope these talented ladies do continue to blog.


Anyway onto happier things.  I have been surging ahead with my quilting.  So much so that I despatched DH to the quilt shop in Birmingham near to where he was going for work today to get some supplies!!!!!

I have been working on our friends 50th Anniversary quilt and it had lots of squares in it so I spent one evening chain piecing, which was very calming!!!!


My good friend, Susan, in the US sent me a lovely gift last year and I have used it so much.  It’s this


It has a little blade in and makes cutting between the squares a breeze.


All my squares cut and ready for the next step.

This is the pattern I got from the MSQC tutorials on the web.  It is going together really well and I will show it to you when I have quilted it. 


It’s all a bit much for Treacle!!!!!  She loves Eldest’s bed and of course I am in there too so she loves keeping me company when I am busy sewing, my wonderful QuiltyDale! The only thing is when she begins to snore!!!!!!

I have got my house jobs done today and Girlfriend came for a visit this afternoon which was lovely and tomorrow I have errands to run as on Saturday evening Girlfriends parents, Mel & Charles, are coming for dinner, so looking forward to that.

Sunday is going to be nice again so we can get the final jobs in the garden done and of course it is Father’s Day!  DH will just love gardening on his special day!!!!!

Happy Thursday everyone.

Hugs, Susie xx

    So glad you were able to use some of the things I sent! Love chain-piecing – it does make piecing a quilt so much easier and quicker. Nice weather is holding here as well but the animals and I are happy to have air conditioning with the temps being in the 90s here. Saturday is my dad’s birthday and Sunday is Father’s Day here as well. Occasionally he is stuck with his birthday and Father’s Day on the same day…poor guy! Enjoy your week!
