A Finish!!

I hope every one had a nice weekend. I have finished sewing the binding on Country Garden....yay! I really like this quilt. The photos don't do it justice.
a little close up...
I enjoyed that spot of hand quilting so much I am going to baste up Portabello Friendship. This one....
Mistlemouse is progressing but alas I have run out of fabric and had to order more...isn't it always the way.
Apart from all these little bits and bobs I decided to drive myself and my better half completely insane by purchasing a not the medicinal type!! I have long felt the need to be able to keep in touch with you sweet people when Mr R. needs our computer for his work.....
Now I am not at all techno savvy as you all are acutely aware and Mr R. is but does it for a day job and doesn't really want to try and explain ever so patiently how all this is going to work to his other half (but he did  sort of) The upshot of all this is that I now am able to go away and keep in touch with you all or when I get thrown off the other one have another option.....never thought I would see the day!!!
Actually I am quite impressed with myself. I am telling you this to encourage all you poor folk out here who like me think you will never get a handle on it all. Just goes to show you can teach an old Yogini new tricks (sort of).
Have a great week everyone,
Blessings Michelle xx
