I hope that you enjoyed our Royal Wedding which was on Friday us Brits do Pomp & Ceremony well I wish the couple a very Happy Life Together.

Well I am still working on the quilt which is for a wedding gift should be finished later this week.

I have done some blocks it for a swap on my Online Quilting Group the block is called Next Door Neighbour  & this is what is going to the 2 names drawn this month.


I also done a pair of socks in Bamboo it Happy Yarn which is 75% bamboo 25% nylon (polyamide) the colour is Jupiter (2513)



I haven't had any further sock orders so not knitting any at present, which is okay with the quilt I need to finish

Also on my group we are doing a KYO-BOM which is Keep your own Block of the Month in this those who signed up for it pick a block for one of the months so May's one is

called   Lover's Knot  This one I rather like & if you look on page 2 & at what some have done there is a lovely quilt done using Black White & Floral it the one done by Julia I may do this for my DD wedding quilt but using red not a 100% as I am also liking one or 2 other ones so not made up my mind yet

On the KYO-BoM I have to choose June's one have a few ideas but not decided yet, I am hoping to make decisions on blocks & quilt once the quilt is done & may be even after the 2 weddings this month the 1st will be for the one I done the quilt for which I will show later in the week, then a week after that wedding we have another one to attend so a busy month for weddings

I just ordered a new dress hoping it arrives in time & that it will suit me I will look for something else for DD wedding in October

Wonderful blog, Janice!!  Really enjoyed reading it.  The block exchange sounds like a lot of fun.  :)  I like that the person gets to pick the color 'family' so things jive.  The bamboo socks look really nice.  Will be waiting to see how they wear!  :)

Thank you all for your lovely comments

I wanted to see how the bamboo yarn knitted up which it not knitted up too badly i used my usual size needles for doing them but was slightly smaller than the size they say on the yarn band but they come out the same as my other socks

The blocks the person who signs up give their main colour so when my name is drawn i will be for CoC with autumn colours

The royal wedding if nothing else gave us a day of what we can call the feel good factor no bad news just fun

Hugs Janice

All of your projects are wonderful. I too am a quilter and it is fun to see the inspiration of what others do with colors and fabrics. What is everyone's favorite 'sock' yarn?? Just wondering. Some of them knit up nicely enough but they don't seem to hold the shape very well and get quite saggy. I hate that.  vk
