New Blocks

I have been meaning to post these new blocks since Monday and at last here they are.

Nine Patch
Half Square Triangles
Brown & Gold Churn Dash
Blue Churn Dash
Assembled Section
I don't know a lot about cameras, so I'm trying to learn.  Taking photographs indoors at night doesn't work well, so I try and take them either near the window or outside during the day. 

My camera is showing some blurring on the left side of some photos and I don't know why.  So I think I will borrow Alan's camera to go to The Festival of Quilts next week.  I got my programme in the post yesterday, so the show seems really close now.  Can't wait!!!

We all headed to the beach this week and had a great day.  We went to Buncrana in Donegal.  We had a lovely day, it was even warm enough for the kids to go in the water.

The water was very calm.
Lough Swilly
Rocky Outcrop
Time for a picnic.
Charlie enjoyed himself too.
After our picnic we headed off to Mamore Gap for a drive.  It's a long time since we were there and because the weather was so good, the views were amazing.

Fantastic views
I live in a very beautiful country but sometimes it takes a trip like this to remind me just how beautiful it is.

Hopefully I'll be able to post photos of my finished bag soon.  My friends and I always make a new one for going to The Festival of Quilts.

See you soon.

  1. Lovely pictures Sandra. I lived in Moville,Co Donegal for 7 years so they have brought back happy memories. I now live in Cork.Did you visit 'The Fennel Shed'quilt shop in Buncrana when you were there? I missed the Festival of Quilts this year due to family illness but I hope to get there next year hopefully. Thank you for taking the time to show your photos. I too make a new patchwork bag for my visit to the festival every year.
