Finally finished stitching Abigail.

I've been busy and not just with work. Since I last posted we've celebrated Lucy's birthday and attended her Masters graduation. Of course Lucy and I needed new dresses for her graduation so we had a long and very enjoyable shopping trip. Unusually for me I actually bought two new dresses and a pair of shoes. Lucy is great fun to go shopping with and we enjoyed lunch whilst we were out.

I haven't spent much time on my sewing machine so I haven't completed the quilting on my compass quilt but I have spent time on hand stitching. I've been working on my hexie quilt, and this evening I finally finished the stitching on Abigail. I've grown rather fond of this lady, I just wish she didn't have worms in her bag!

In finishing Abigail I have also managed to finish my April goal. This is the first monthly goal I've managed to complete in months so I'm doing a happy dance.  I'm linking this post with Kathy from Kathy's Quilts for her Slow Sunday Stitching and also with Patty from Elm Street Quilts for the April link party for One Monthly Goal 

Yesterday John and I went walking to visit the bluebell wood. I'll tell you about it tomorrow as now I need to go to bed. Finishing the stitching on Abigail has worn me out. I must make time earlier in the day for stitching as doing it in artificial light makes my eyes tired. 

We are expecting high winds and lots of rain here plus the temperature has dropped dramatically. Just when I thought it was safe to forget about winter it comes back again. I spent last Sunday sorting my summer clothes but tomorrow I will need to wear something warmer. Hopefully the summer will arrive soon.

Take care



  1. Abigail has finished out so lovely...worms and all!

  2. Abigail is delightful! Totally understand about stitching under artificial lights.

  3. She is so cute! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.

  4. Yay! She’s looking great!

  5. Congrats on finishing all the lovely stitching on this lady, as Suzanne said worms and all. We finally have temps nearing our normals so that means spring is finally here. So heartening to see sun. I would love to see bluebells.

  6. Guess not many quilters you know enjoy fishing as well, as Abigail does!
