Damp Friday

Lots of showers coming and going here today so after my Yoga class and some yummy pumpkin soup for lunch I settled in for a spot of stitching and my little bear block just happened to be dodging showers too.
I have just finished it....
She doesn't look all that pleased about the weather either. I am quite pleased at my progress with these blocks and only have a few more to go IF I don't get side tracked.
I have been meaning to show you the "hubby tripper" aka a wooden towel rack/ quilt rack I bought on holidays at a bargain price (where I bought the lovely Winton plate). I think I am going to be one of those old ladies that will never consider whether or not it fits in....I'll make it fit....hang on I already am!!!!
It now lives at the top of my stairs....side view.
I think it looks lovely with it's quilts. So far only a few toe bangs by No 1 Husband. lol.
Tonight Hubby is cooking (chinese takeaway from our favourite shop) so I am not sure if I will continue on with the next bear block or do a little quilting job.
Decisions, decisions! Are you kicking up your heels to mark the end of the working week or are you like me and doing some quiet stitching?
I hope you find some stitching time this weekend.
Blessings Michelle xxx
