Quilting for Project Linus

I’ve joined a quilt group and I made my first Project Linus quilt top this weekend:   It needs making into a quilt sandwich,¬†quilting and binding so not finished yet. Here are the fabrics close up: Using fabrics from my stash I used half a metre of the rabbit print, the same in white for […]


Morning light

We’ve had wet and windy weather for the past day or so and winter is definitely on it’s way. This photo was taken at 7:15 this morning from our bedroom window and doesn’t give the light full justice: Half an hour later whilst being blown to pieces walking the dog I took this: Now it’s […]


Home at last

Our daughter returned from Australia yesterday. She had a wonderful time but is pleased to be back.

The temperature has also dropped and is predicted to reach freezing tonight.¬† So the woodburner is on (the latest […]


It’s my birthday…

It’s been a quiet day but I’ve been spoilt with lots of lovely gifts: Firstly I got 2 Accuquilt dies and mat from DH and my Step-Mom. Then a bag from a wonderful friend: The outer red fabric is a heavy canvas and the stripped fabric used to be 2 tea towels. It has 3 […]

Welcome to my new home. Due to various technical difficulties with Blogger I decided to move. I’m really behind on posts and have lots of photos to share but first need to write my last post at the old site. Back soon…  


Happy Birthday DH

My gorgeous husband is celebrating his birthday today. We’ve had the day off work, went out for lunch and he has a great new ‘toy’ to play with. His mum got him a great card which I had to share: For Airedale lovers the card can be bought from Marks & Spencers
