Walk in the park

Saturdays walk in the park,it was bright and sunny but very cold.
Spring is truly here and the blossom trees are beautiful in their Spring gowns.

Hubby and Lilly,I have to say I am always tagging along behind(story of my life lol)

The icecream van was there,brrr bit cold for me.

The War Memorial Park Coventry,it's a lovely park with play areas for the young ones (fountains for them to play in when it's warm)

Skate boarding area for the older ones,
I love this it's keeps them in a safe area and out of the car parks.

There's also tennis courts if you are so inclined .
Two great cafe's(we always have a coffee and a muffin)
Yep a couple of very pleasant hours spent in the sunshine and only 10minutes away from home.

My best friend ,B.
Have a good week all.

Scandinavian Rose

Started to put the blocks together,I'm using the scraps from the FQS  Mystery BOM,

Fat Quarter Shop BOMs are so generous there's mountains of fabric left over.

Here's how it's looking.
This is half put together.

Stil a couple to stitch before I put the other half together(hope I have enough scraps) .

We are having lovely weather here,so won't be doing much sewing ,we will be out and about.
A very Happy St Patricks Day to all who celebrate.
Have a good week.xx

Do you remember this,Summertime wall hanging.

Well I did finish this ,it's on a previous post.
Had no idea what to do or where to hang it.So this is what I came up with.I chopped it in half....rearranged it stitched it back together and put a back on it.Two wide "straps"to keep it in place.

It now sits on the back of the sofa.We love it there,looks bright and cheerful.Its a leather sofa and they do strike a bit cold in the winter months it's usually covered in quilts.

Another one of these,
Not many to go now,I've been playing with the blocks today.Decided to use all the scraps from The mystery BOM that I am making for Nicky.Its looking good will take some photos and show tomorrow.
All for now .Laura x

A bit f this a bit of that

I seem to be having problems with blogger,I read all your posts but can't get onto your pages to leave messages,very frustrating.My ipad is really slowing down.
So this is what I've been stitching,

This .....
And this of the Scandinavian Rose.

Another BOM,this is no/9

I've been having a play with some scraps and made this block,The hunters Star.

I like this block I think I may make a quilt with this in blue and white or maybe red and white.
I am going to a craft and sewing show next week and darling hubby is treating me so I will be able to buy fabric ,can't wait,been on a fabric diet since Christmas and it's almost as bad as a food diet.

Lilly says hello,she had her hair cut last week ,see how it makes her smile when she looks

I've been busy stitching my Christmas item but can't show yet.
The weather here is lovely at the moment,very mild for March,but is nice after all that rain,Yesterday we went to Wales to see Bs aunt and uncle,it was lovely and sunny all day.
On the road.
See the Welsh mountains in the background.

I love Wales,we don't go often enough.
Raglan Castle,I took this while whizzing along in the car(B was driving of course)

That's it for now,hope you all have a good week.
