Posts Tagged ‘The Day After Storm Doris’

Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a great day. It’s been a lovely bright day in my little corner of the northeast of England. I enjoyed the sunshine which has given me a chance to get out after Storm Doris to sweep up and collect all the rubbish that was blown into my front garden over the last twenty-four hours. Storm Doris huffed and puffed and blew lots of water in but I survived to tell the tale. I will definitely have to have some building work done when spring arrives.

Once my outdoor chores were done I decided to do a little rotary cutting …..


I decided to hand piece these patches …..


To make four spool blocks for a project I have been designing.


I’m quite excited about working on this little project that I started drawing last autumn. Now that the blocks are coming to life the project feels more real.

I stepped out this morning to buy some milk. The sun was shining so brightly that it was blinding me. While I was in the supermarket I found this …..


This bright cheerful plant is a sign of what’s to come. Spring really is around the corner. Even the sweet song of the birds is giving me hope that spring is well and truly on the way.

It’s been a good week in my little world. The best part was attending my Quits for Comfort volunteer day on Wednesday. I always feel better knowing that I’m doing something useful. And I consider helping others very useful.

So, for this evening, this very happy and super ambitious quilt maker will be hand piecing a few spool blocks. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy doing. Until you read me again,

Happy stitching ♥ ♥
