The quilt shop had just the batting that I needed, at a very good price, so I got enough to last me a while.
I had a little excursion into a couple of shops and picked up an outdoor electric extension lead for the chipper before driving home, popped into Asda for some coffee that is on offer.
Another cup of tea and out with the sewing machine. I made a charity quilt a while ago and made far too many blocks. There were not enough to make a full size quilt but just enough for a snuggle size, I had some deep pink minky to back it with so no wadding needed.
This was the result
I am sorry for the poor picture but I am missing my quilt holders, she is shopping and he is chipping at the bottom of the garden.
The blocks are disappearing four patch in shades of pink and green.it was a rushed job and the Minky was a nightmare to sew, but it is so good to snuggle under, Bertie loves it and it was in a post earlier with him snoozing deeply.
I am still getting on with the padded tote bags and cushion cases. Miss Opie won one from me and it will be in the post on Monday, I hope that she likes it.
I was lucky enough to win some fabric from Frantic Antic and it arrived yesterday, it is lovely.
as soon as this lot of sewing is done I will be using every scrap.
We are having a lazy dinner tonight, Sausage, egg and chips homemade in the oven. Roast Chicken tomorrow with Yorkshire Pudding, roasties and lots of veg., I might make stuffing as well with some sausage meat and bacon in it. Then some can find it's way into a pie later in the week. I think I have talked myself into that!
That's it from me for now, tea break is over and the sewing is calling me, BTW it is now raining,
at least the weather is not boring just a bit Bloody Minded. TTFN Pam
