I'm Back, and showcasing a completed quilt

Hi everyone,  I am back from my wonderful holiday to Thailand.  Arrived home safe and well this morning. and have had a few visitors today as well as a nap.  Trying to catch up on the emails (there were over 60 in my inbox), so please be patient if you don't hear from me for a day or so as I work through these.  I had planned to stay in touch while on holidays but the wifi at the resort was hit and miss.  Some pics will follow in a few days too.

On another note I am proud to announce that Marie, who has been a member of this quilting group for around 12 months has emailed me a pic of her completed Jacobs ladder quilt.  Details of the quilt and contributors on members quilts page of the blog.



Sadly 3 members are leaving us this month, but they will stay in touch and follow the blog and hopefully re join when life lets them.  We also welcome two new members.  Carmen from Robinvale in NSW and Ank from the Netherlands so join me in making them feel welcome

Lastly, I have been getting a lot of SPAM comments on the blog, so I am going to exclude comments from non blog members to hopefully put a stop to this (10 this month).

Isn't it nice to see the end result. So weird seeing my block in there. Can't wait to have enough blocks to make one too! Loks great Marie!

Nice to see you home all refreshed.

Was nice to finally put my Jacobs Ladder blocks together. DH has claimed the quilt as his.

Welcome to the two new ladies.

You could add word verification.

I'm not a member (maybe one day) but I follow this blog and like to comment occasionally on blocks I like.
