So, I got busy with the baby quilt blocks, yes it did mean ironing and no I did not empty the basket.
Not quite a TAH DAH, I still have the binding to stitch down on the back.
I do like this block but will be playing with it, I want to try a 9 patch in the bottom right corner and a pin wheel block above it.
The backing is a remnant of a Michael Miller fabric that I picked up for £1.99 a few years ago. I just knew that it would find a place one day.
I may have to make a girlie one next as I have quite a stash of pink fabrics, along with some Savannah Bop. Also several years old and a bargain buy.
I have walked the dogs once today, after the rain cleared and am about to do so again. In between I walked down to the local shop by the road and back via the footpath. Just to get some exercise after yesterday, I am keeping an average of 3 miles a day.
I cleaned A's oven this morning, after an overnight soaking with a cleaning solution. I had to reapply some to a few bits and will get the job finished after the walk. It is certainly not my favourite job and I wipe mine out after every use.
I will be giving A's oven a whizz over every week from now on.
I am off now, Ben is giving me That Look.
There must be something in the air, I had trouble sleeping last night too. Love the quilt, a great job.ReplyDelete
That was the worst night that I have had for a long time. Thank you, I do like it myself, I will have to find someone to give it to, Leo already has 3 and there are no more babies on the horizon.Delete
Beautiful quilt Pam-x-ReplyDelete
Thank you. It is all down to the fabrics.Delete
Thank you, I wouldn't sneeze at one for myself but that is the end of most of those fabrics.Delete
The quilt looks beautiful X I hate insomnia. It's so blooming annoying!ReplyDelete
I don't mind if I have something that I am happy to do, I do not need much sleep so a lost night is not too bad.Delete
The quilt is lovely. I like the uniformity of the pattern and the coloursReplyDelete
I really like the layout and picked out "boy" colours as they were nearest.Delete
Gorgeous quilt, Pam, sorry to hear about the sleeplessness, it's so draining, isn't it. Crikey what a good friend to clean someone else's oven! I HATE the job and wipe mine after every use too.ReplyDelete
A is in a wheelchair for much of the time and her hubby has a cataract growing and can not see to clean the oven properly. It is not a pleasant job but now that it is done I will keep on top of it.Delete
Your quilt is beautiful. So fresh and Spring like!ReplyDelete
Thank you, I will be playing later to work out some variations.Delete
