OMG!!!!! It's off the FAL2016 list!!!! Silk is done ....

This is going to be a loooooong post but then again this has been my longest ever WIP it was on My FAL Q3 list and it had been on every FAL list for 6 count them 6 years!! So forgive me, indulge me or skip to the end or go and read another blog 😊
It started at the FOQ seven years ago. My chum Irene came running up to me saying there was this amazing lady demoing the most fantastic techniques. Intrigued I went to here stand and met the lovely Pauline Ineson, we both bought her book:
                                                    We both thought this was an amazing quilt to make and bought all the silk and calico and other stuff needed for it. I got stuck in and made a few of the test blocks, even made this box to hold the blocks in. 
   I do love it, it feels weird not having it kicking around the sewing room it's been a part of my sewing life for so long, while I was sick it was a beacon, something which would mark me *being well again* then it just seemed like a bit of an albatross. Now it's more like a  rite of passage. And oh my goodness didn't I learn soooooo much about my sewing machine!! 14 quid this book cost and I learned about £500 of sewing lessons from it. So thank you Pauline for your wonderful book which led to my lovely quilt, I do love it. I will finish off with this pic of the blue mine I made simply because this stupid blogging app won't let me delete it! But it is pretty 😊😊😊😊 
I have lost all of these pictures! hey ho i still have the quilt!
