The Picture of Relaxation


One thing that my pets know how to do is to relax.  Here is "Dreamer" in his favourite winter spot - The mantle.  If you look closely you can see the chew marks on the greyhounds nose of my figurine.  This is Dreamer's contribution to home decorating.  Lucky I adore him !!


Yesterday was pretty bleak here so after spending the morning doing those mundane housework chores I spent the afternoon in my sewing room.  Firstly I played with some binding for Amy's quilt - It is all attached now just needs to be stitched down.


I managed to finish stitching down the binding on my new design - It's as easy as 1,2,3


There was a brief moment of sunshine when I was taking photographs of it.


It is a nice bright quilt with paper piecing, embroidery, simple piecing and applique - So a bit of everything.


As usual Sarah did a wonderful job of quilting it.


I also played with some applique and managed to get the next 2 blocks of Henrietta's Whiskers ready to stitch - Blocks 5 & 6.  So I had a pretty productive afternoon.  Let's hope I can snatch another hour or two today to play with my UFO for this month - Nanny Sharon's Picnic Quilt (Threadbare Design) which I started about 2 years ago.


I will leave you with this photograph of the little wren that played in the garden outside my sewing room window yesterday.
