Tonight I am linking up with other stitcher's for ...
Hosted by the lovely Wendy from Sugarlane Quilts. It is a nice feeling knowing other stitcher's are sewing along with you and enjoying treats too....
As Mr R and I are babysitting a couple of our Grandies tonight I can't promise huge inroads into my UFO's but I will definitely be trying to get a couple of stitches in and there WILL be chocolate. So all the 'necessaries' are in place. If I do manage a few stitches I think it will be on my blue version of my birdies...
I haven't touched it since I began so a bit of attention is required. That's the plan anyway. Babies actually don't understand about plans do they. Ah well I will be there in spirit at least.
I have however been very diligent with my hand quilting and I am now on to the borders and quilting the hexies... there are little ones.
and there are long ones...
I had all sorts of plans to do all sorts of different quilting on this but I was having such a lovely relaxing time with my meandering quilting I have just kept on going with it. I really love this quilt. I definitely feel like I am embracing my 'inner mudiness' with these didn't know there was such a thing???
 That is it from me today. Off to attend to all the admin jobs that need doing.
Don't forget if you are interested in my two new designs just email me at -
I wish you all a relaxing weekend doing something that makes your heart sing (or at the very least hum)
