My bloggy friend Giles is a bloke, and he is a quilter. Giles blogs at Touch and Sew, so titled because Giles is legally blind.
He's not just an inspiring guy - he's also a down to earth, bargain hunting, cat loving, joke cracking good blogger and really nice guy. He's just joined a massive quilty group with 150 odd old ladies! He's soon to be interviewed by our lovely bloggy friend Rhonda for her Quilter in the Gap Podcast! He's also taking part in Pigtales and Quilts "Men Quilt Too" Quilt Show. You can find out more about Giles here.
Now, I'm not telling you that you HAVE to go and vote for him.... but... pop on over, have a nosey, and Vote Giles! Its his first ever quilt, which he pieced by hand. It's number 14, entitled Owls all Around. You can read about every step from start to finish on his blog. And I think its a worthy winner!

I had a very sleepy day on Sunday, but I managed to stay awake to watch Downton Abbey, and make cookies in the ad breaks! No' bad eh? Today, if I'm getting sewing time, I have plans...
I shall be scheming and plotting with this.

And hopefully a wee bit of playing with this!
