M = mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I'm seeing M's in my sleep.

When I shut my eyes M's flicker across my eye lids.

I' m being driven mad by M's!

So I gave in.

The letters were getting bigger and bigger as I got more and more confident in my cutting (I really must concentrate on Making Quilts 4 Me).

Yesterday afternoon ToM's m was discarded and replaced by what was supposed to be a W but was cut the wrong way wound (oh my goodness - now it's W's!).

Tamzins Quilt

ToM's m looked so small and sorry for itself. Now he has got a nice big strong M.

Thanks all of you for your comments and advice, but as you can see, it did really have to be replaced. Poor little orphan M - oh stop it - you're going to make me cry (sniff).

You will be pleased to know that I'm not going to show this quilt again until it's f inished. Boring, boring boring seeing photos of the same quilt on, every post *vbg*.

And on that note - it's Périgueux time - perhaps a trip to the thread shop.

Looking good! I have a drawer full of unused letters. Maybe someday they will speak to me. Lol.

It's never boring to see a WIP! Happy thread-shopping!

Do your "M"s have wings? I will be looking for the finished quilt at a later date.

Well done Clare! (It would have driven me mad too!)

I don't think it's boring... I like seeing the progress. Your letters are fantastic.
