Busy week in the Dowdall household.

We have no floor in the living room at the minute,B is replacing it..So we have a huge hole and the furniture (we have far too much) is piled up all over the place.So Im in my little space doing a bit of sewing,and every now and then I go down stairs to make him a coffee and make sure he is OK.
I've started to make a few blocks for a scrappy quilt ,it's for a dear friend who has had a rough time this year.Irene has been in and out of hospital all year they really can't decide what is wrong with her.She always admires my work so this will be a nice surprise for her.
The first few blocks 

They are all going to be like these.

I bought this pattern this week don't know if I'll ever get round to making it.

But it looks like a nice work bag.

I managed to put together the first two blocks of the mystery quilt.

Gorgeous ,love the colours in this one ,its for my daughter Nicky.There was a mini charm pack with the first block so I have made a pot holder to send to Nicky so she she can see whats going in her quilt.

Another one of these glued down ready to sew.
Have to get on with the sewing now,as soon as Brian's finished the floor I will be hanging wall paper.
Love from me.xx
