I love the colours here.  Makes my fingers itch for some solids and the rotary cutter

Is there anyone there?

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder!  After a 10 day break I hope so!


Yuk grey weather.


Yuk cold weather.


Mist in the Valley


Yuk weather FULL STOP


Enough to give anyone the winter blues.


So I'm hand quilting like crazy.


Hand Quilting - Stars


Haven't touched the sewing machine for what seems like weeks.  That string quilt is still on the wall with 2 borders on and I can't seem to get the motivation to finish it off.


So keeping warm and quietly stitching away.

Whoops - that photo wasn't supposed to be that big!

No Strings Attached

Here's part of the string quilt I'm making for a little girl in New York State.  I'm rather pleased with it.



I'll show another photo later in the week once I've got the borders on.

We don't normally celebrate Hallowe'en over here, but Alex got a call from a friend of hers asking if she wanted to go trick or treating yesterday.  I don't think Amandine knew exactly what it meant, but they did it anyway and got soaked.



It hasn't stopped raining for about 3 days and the forecast for the rest of the week is c**p!
