Look what dropped through my letter box this morning…..
This one had totally passed me by until I saw an amazingly
beautiful completed quilt which planted a little seed in my mind that has been growing and growing.
‘Should I give it a go I asked myself?’
‘Yes, you should.’ was the answer!!
Might take me a while to get all the stuff together, but can’t wait to start pulling fabrics.
I also managed to finish the meditation cushion that I’ve been making for my friend.
I used these instructions, which I adapted to make it a little prettier and stronger as it would be slightly disruptive if it popped during her teaching!!
I ordered a bag of buckwheat to stuff it with and it was way bigger than expected so will be making more of these..one for myself next I think.
Would like to try and put a zip in next time maybe to allow for topping up, plus a handle.

almost 365 days,
at least 20 posts…..
And finally the City Sampler is here!
Actually it was finished ages ago, but I got waylaid by the photography side of things.
Really though it seems to have been perfectly timed for the
Blogger’s Quilt Festival, yay!! Last time I didn’t have the confidence to put anything on show, but I did have fun visiting everyone else’s beautiful quilts so I decided this time why not enter.
And that’s what I’m doing with my biggest quilt so far and possibly, most probably, my last……unless I sort out my sewing space!!

Look what I won!
Yes, that’s right, I won a beautiful set of
Aurifil threads for the December Lovely Year of Finishes!!
Aren’t they gorgeous?! I only have limited blue threads at the moment so very pleased to see this beautiful rainbowy array, can’t wait to try them out.
Onto my goals for this month.
Quite simply it’s this…….
