Productive weekend

I have challenged my self and have started writing my first ever quilt pattern.  Its for the pin wheel quilt that I made in the Lilac Hill range for my friend Rosemary a couple of years ago, and is my own design after being creative with a charm pack.  Stay tuned for the finished product - Lilac hill is the quilt on my blog header, top left.

So on Friday night I got to work on the pin wheels, and I am writing the pattern as I reconstruct the quilt.
Here is half of the 20 I need to make, the rest are in various stages of construction.

This range is called Audras Iris garden and is very similar to the Lilac hill range that I first made this quilt in.

Then on Saturday night I finally finished my cowl neck scarf using the beautiful organic hand dyed wool from August bird.  ( I hate trying to take photos of myself, but as I am home alone today I didn't do too badly).

After I finished the scarf the night was still young so I got the final bit of stitchery done on block 5 of Girls day out..  I really have to get a move on now, as I got the email yesterday that block 1 of Libby's new quilt  a little bit country is being mailed out next week.  I am hosting a stitch-a-long for that one if anyone is interesting in joining in. HERE is the link.
