The Things You Find

After being bombarded on the head once again from a pile of badly organised towels and linen in my linen closet I decided before Easter....enough was more than enough! I was so fed up I ditched my "better keep it! might come in handy!" philosophy, that by 08.30 that morning I had charity bags filled, rubbish bin filled and I could actually see the back of the cupboard! Husband stared as if I had lost my mind....AGAIN!
During this knee jerk purge I shamefully uncovered a once loved half finished quilt...
Want to see?
It is  a  Robyn Pandolph design and pattern. Begun many moons ago. I had collected all Robyn Pandolph fabrics to make it......I had begun hand quilting it even, got the centre done...
And made it to the corners.
I think Summer must have arrived and it was put aside until Winter once again returned. How it ended up lost in the Linen closet I have no clue! Maybe unexpected visitors and an emergency pretending "I am really neat" tidy up lol! I  missed Domestic Goddess training I admit it! Who knows...
So my pile of UFOING just got bigger *sigh* It is very pretty though.
Come on cool weather so I can begin! Would you believe we are still sleeping with a fan on! Shorts and sleeveless is still daily attire....
I'm off for some pain killers and a lie down......headache! But I  thought if I  shared my shame it may make me accountable to finish it.
Enjoy your week.
Sharing this photo of my little Granddaughter in Yogini training mode lol! Think she has been watching Mummy.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  1. He he, I have a linen cupboard fit like that every now and then. Very therapeutic, but alas, I never find a gorgeous quilt like that lurking in the depths :( I'm sure it will be brilliant on your bed this winter. If winter ever comes, that is. xx

  4. Hope the headache has eased by now, Michelle! That's a gorgeous photo of your granddaughter too :-)
    I did something similar with my linen cupboard a little while ago...it's so nice and easy to put things away in it now...I'm so proud! lol. I'm now working on the bedroom which I've used as a sewing room and it's the 'dump' when I do my fast clean ups, so you can imagine how many things I've uncovered that had been forgotten.

  5. Hello Michelle,

    Ooh how lovely to come across a project like that, here's hoping for a cool change so some quilting can be done. The minimalist movement would be proud of your linen cupboard. Hope the headache has gone.

    Happy days.
