on a brighter note- I have been sewing a few odds and ends quilt wise!
3 charity shop finds to fuel my Kaffe obsession...
A haphazard quilt using all my scraps- kindly put on by a My Poppet- I love the way it turned out, just needs backing and quilting.
Here comes my liberty obsession.... a few pin cushions to brighten up the place!
A little rag rug sampler I made at a workshop down at the Timeless treasures fabric shop In Milford- the same place that had the storm! I enjoyed the cutting up of tee shirts and the process, but not sure if I will be taking it up in depth!
A simple 4'squares quilt top- pre stitching, will post the finished article when I have doen it.
My latest obsession- reusing mens shirts , in particular stripey patterns to have a go at Kaffes shirt quilt.
The leftovers are in 5"strips ready for an improv quilt. Looking forward to the hand quilting that is perfect for these type of quilts.
And finally- I had a brilliant night with dinner and breakfast included at the Donnington Valley Hotel and Spa- coutesy of my sister who had a freebie as a gold member.
Our room was lovely, the bathroom lush and the food excellent. the spa was very relaxing, especially after a bottle of bubbly!
Must not leave so much time before my next blog...
