Welcome to my new followers! I'm so happy you clicked one of the buttons and hope you'll like what you see and stick around.
Perhaps I got out of bed the wrong side this morning but ask my husband, my mum or my newly turned 5 year old son and they'll all tell you I've been in a bit of a funk today. There were reasons but I won't bore you with them!
After having a whinge of mammoth proportions to anyone who would listen, I turned the aircon on and basted my Field Study triangles quilt. The backing arrived last night and I love it! It was silly price Loulouthi voile which I bought in a recent Pink Castle sale and it is super soft, silky and just well lovely and far prettier in real life. Now I just have to decide how to quilt it - straight line echoing I imagine!
Then as if the universe knew I needed cheering up, I found my copy of Hand Quilted with Love by Sarah Fielke lying next to the gate having been thrown over it by the postie. A quick flick through and my eyes widened on seeing this quilt. This was one of two quilts that Sarah was making for a very special person and her daughter, and I contributed blocks! You can read about it and see my blocks here.
My mum also sent me this picture of her presenting the Patchwork Wheel quilt made by the members of the Care Circle, do.Good Stitches to the local representative of Project Linus UK. It made me smile to see it finally going on its journey to a new home.
Lastly, if that wasn't enough reason to get out of my funk I only have to look at this little one who turned 5 on Tuesday and I smile.
Whinge over.Thank you for listening. Off to look at my new book!
