Out and about in the snow.

End of March,goodness where are the days going.Yesterday we went to the camping shop we use,not far away only a few miles.Snow everywhere,now I know some of you get big snows,but we are just not used to it.We have had snow in March and April before now,but not like this.

Thousands of homes without power. Come on Spring,we are all ready and waiting. Have a good day friends.xx

One Christmas item a month

This month I have been on a mission to finish Tis the Season.Almost  there,waiting for some fabric to arrive so I can finish it off.

As you can see I have stitched it in blue instead of red.Very happy with the result.I think the fabric I sent for is stuck in the snow somewhere.

Look what just came in the post

The last block of American Beauty,and all the sashing fabric.I will have a good weekend cutting out.I promise to read all instructions.....

this and that

made a couple of hand towels this week ,I love these,very quick and easy to make.

these are  in my bathroom.
I will be making a couple more this week,for a friend who is moving into an OAP bungalow,she has to get rid of a large amount of  her things,and I thought they  might cheer her a bit.

Another Summertime block.

                                                                       Anyone for tea.

                                                                     Two more SKOW.

I made a bit of a booboo with this one,because I diddnt read the pattern properly(Im really good at that)
it should have tiny blocks across the bottom.As I was stitching,I did wonder why there was so much fabric at the top I have cut it off now and will sort it out later,prob leave the tiny blocks out.

I love hot chocolate on a chilly day.
Its still bitterly cold here,so getting plenty of sewing in.We do try to go out every day,it would be too easy to just stay in and sew.Lilly needs a walk every day ,she soon lets you know when she wants walkies.
We are longing for some warmth on our old bones,cant wait to get out in the camper. all for now.
love from me

Table Topper

The Farmers wife table topper!
I got real fed up with these blocks,so this is what they become,and Im happy with it.
I chose dark brown with tiny leaves and flowers for all the sashing  and back .

Here it is  on the dining table,very happy with it.

That's a few things off the top of the pile,just wish the pile was not 2. Mile high.haha.
Well,it keeps me out of trouble. 
All for now.Laura xx

Lou is fed up and losing the plot !!!!!

Oh dear,every now and then,I start to feel bogged down with all my unfinished stuff.....I have 3 BOMs on the go,pluss SKOW ,Summertime, Tis the Season,oh and I can't remember what else.
When I sat down last night,my head was a whirl and I didn't    know which one to work on.
I am going to finish some stuff,before my head explodes,or I pop me clogs . 

So....I won this fabric last year in a give away,I used the panel and charm pack and made as small quilt that Nicky took back to Australia with her.(so it came from Australia,and went back lol)

I had these 8 8ths left.lovely fabric,very 50s,on Friday I cut them into strips to make placemats.
They will be finished this week with some red binding.

This will be the next item to be finished,only 4 little sticheries to do ,then its going together.I think I will use this for my one Christmas item a month.So I will try not to show it finished untill 24th.
Yep this girls on a mission,

Next item.........................
Farmers Wife,well this is never going to be a quilt,so ive dragged them out the box trimmed them ,none of them are square..Iam going to make a table runner with them,so at least they will be used.

The BOMs I am doing are all due to end in the next 3 months(so why oh why did I sign up for another one later in the year .....)
So rant over for now.

Thought I would share this with you, we took Lilly to the park and saw these.Gorgeous crocus.Lovely and bright.

The dafs are on their way too.Love this time of year,with its promise of things to come.

Lilly as always had a great time.

See you soon with a few finishes ...
love from me.Stay safe.xx
