So what does a girl do when she is home sick with a cold ( between napping). well sew of course.
But first there were two fat parcels in my letterbox this morning. My table runner from Maria G had arrived, and it certainly put some sunshine into my day.
And look at the pretty card, and envelope that came with it.
Thank you Maria, I love it.
The other fat parcel was my BOM from the FQS, block 11 of the mystery BOM that I am doing with them. So that gave me something to work on today, Only one more block to go in this 12 month, 12 block project. I love the pin wheel centre of this one
I also finished the borders on my pinwheels quilt for the pattern that I am writing, here is how it is looking so far. The cream borders look quite stark in the photos but they look better in reality, there is a lovely paisley tone on tone print on the fabric. But for now I have to sit and await the parcel of border fabric that I have ordered to go on this before I can do any more work on it.
So now what next ?
I was lucky enough to win this gorgeous jelly roll at the Lets get stitched Adelaide quilting retreat and its one of my favourite designers – fig tree. I have ordered the border fabric (with the pinwheel fabric order) so time to make a start on it.
I have made this sampler quilt twice before and love it, my most recent one was in French General, but my first one was butterscotch and roses for my MIL’s birthday gift and its one of my all time favourite quilts.
But first, some more panadol and a cup of tea.
