Belated thank you and patchwork fun
Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post about our understairs bathroom - I can't get over how thrilled I am with it. It really is gorgeous.
Now, last summer I wandered into a quilting supplies shop which is fairly close to where we live. It was lovely, and I signed up for a scheme whereby they sent a selection of squares each month for a year for a total of £15. I haven't liked many of the squares, though some stand out. But I wanted to do something with them and not just leave them in a basket, as they do look pretty together. So, I've been playing with a quick patchwork.
And the rest of the family have been helping out with design ideas. We think we've come down on a design, so I'll let you know how the stitching goes. I've only made a patchwork cushion before, and I can't be bothered to get a book and find out how I ought to be doing it, so I'm sure something will go wrong. But it's fun to piece it together.
I know one thing. I won't be hand stitching!
And I need to say a huge thank you...
... for my awards - I'm sorry it's taken time to get around to posting about them.
First of all, a big thank you to Bake and Sew for my lovely Your Blog is Fabulous Award. Apparently I have to list 5 addictions... well,

I'm fairly sure that everybody has had these awards, so I can't think who to pass on to. I'll go munch on a crunchie instead!
