Good morning

It was nice and dry when I got up, but 1 hour later we have drizzle. I still have a bad cough and sore throat which I can't seem to move, I think another lazy day is called for with not sleeping at night. The cough is getting me down after 6 days!
I made this a couple of weeks ago and I think simple does it for this image. 

It is matted on lilac and coloured with PM,s... our daily bread sentiment, pearls from stash.


This fabric panel came into work last week so I bought it for another baby quilt for McMillan (sorry, not a very clear picture)
I have a man dismantling my greenhouse this morning, so I will make him a drink then doze in front of the rivetting daytime tele!!

Good morning,

Not very nice here today, a bit wet and windy.... over the weekend I have done some sewing which will go away as an early start for McMillan coffee day in September... nothing like getting ahead lol..
and a close up of patterns.... I just did a pink fleece lining on this one...
4 inch squares... bought so long ago I can't remember where, the rest of squares are cut from my scrap box so a win, win, situation !!!
This is for a boy, same pattern squares but others more in greens and blues from scraps....
a blue and yellow fleece, again from stash so some de-cluttering going on as well!!
bindings are also from scrap box, quilted with a wavey line, my fave stitch.... I can't do straight lol....
Off now to clean out the shed.... I may be some while !!!
