Determined not to be stopped by Apple.

After the fail with my iPad Pro, I am trying to update on my phone..... Here goes...

Remember all those fussy cut half inch hexies, well they've become four borders.

I spent what seemed forever prepping honeycombs for the outer border. (Please excuse my pink toed socks) I also discovered how infrequently I use plastic bags. Safeway supermarket hasn't existed in the UK for at least ten years.

I think I'm over half way on the first border. 

Meanwhile Rupert and Millie are well and enjoying their lives. Rupert chases planes and helicopters whilst walking. He crashes when he gets home. 

And my life is getting better. I am on a Low Carb High Fat diet. Going down to 20-40 grams a day. My pain levels have dropped about 80%. The impetus was getting a prediabetic blood test result. After two months my bloods were nearly normal. As the blood test I had was indicative of the previous 3 months, I suspect it's well below now. And I've lost over 20 pounds. Win.

So sorry for not updating for a whole year?!

 I like blogging but not so much from my iPad or my phone. My PC is beyond frustrating, it is beyond slow. So here is an up date from my iPad not made easy as Millie is on my lap...

I am still working on the English Paper Pieced quilt. I love it but wish it were faster.

And now I give up..... I would love to post more but blogger is not uploading photos properly in edit mode from my iPad. I can see them  in the preview, the two are there but it won’t let me scroll down to write more. The 2nd photo shows one of the cornerstones of the first border. I am working on the third border but I cannot get the photos to load....... sorry

I am happy with the centre. I might touch up the white flecks round the birds with an Inktense pencil. The background colour is more of a green khaki but whatever I use to take a photo, it comes up as a variety of tan..
