It is almost mid year and one wonders where time disappears to! I have loved being home and having time to do all sorts of fun things.
I have completed my double bed quilt top and back using my beautiful Malaysian fabrics. I pieced the back as I was determined to use what fabrics I have in the cupboard and not buy anything. The back took longer to make than the front.
I absolutely love the colours of the top. Now to quilt it! It is not easy cutting into one's precious collection and I found this rather apt quotation on Pinterest.
It is so true and I know the bug has bitten Sarah who has just returned from Swaziland with a pile of fabrics and Diana loves fabrics too. Moira has a stash which I drool over when we visit her, so I keep good company. My sons like to accuse me of influencing the girls but I would never do a thing like that!
My dear friend Bridget turned forty this week. I wanted to make something special for her and decided to finish my "Sri Lankan" block. It turned out really cute and I hope she feels happy every time she sees it. We met twice this week at the Book Boutique. Once for Bridget's birthday and once to see Erica Carle. A bit of a Masterpiecers reunion. It was great a seeing all the ladies and the Book Boutique is a great venue. I guess time flies when one is busy and happy.
