A little further...



Well I am a little further with the quilt......mmm......sort of!! The fabric is out and the pattern is chosen.....mmm.....slight problem I still haven't cut into it! Oh well there is always Friday, see I am learning , I know there is not a chance of doing it tomorrow after work! The fabric is Moda's 'Woodland Bloom' and I have got the pattern from one of the magazines Anita sent me in the SSCS, 'Quiltmakers Favorites' - 'Wild Thing'. Sooner or later there will be progress!

This is another of my favorite Christmas presents sent all the way from the UK for me from my sister. She also knows me well! It is a set of 3 new cake tins - red and white spots , it also came with red and white spotted tea towells, tablecloth and napkins. To continue the theme are red silicone cupcake moulds - stars and hearts and a gorgeous red notebook.

Loved these fridge magnets when I found them before Christmas and loved them even more when they were reduced this week ( I love a bargain!). One of them sums me up perfectly ' Behind every successful woman is a cat and a fridge full of chocolate' and any cat lovers can relate to the other ' Dogs have masters, Cats have support staff'!!!!!
Tonight I am giving thanks that I have a nice warm comfy bed to fall into (ASAP) and I pray that I will have a good nights sleep uninterrupted by furry friends!

i adore red and white. especially in the kitchen - so pretty. I have some woodland - and started a quilt with it last year ... and now I don't even know where I've stashed it - must get it out! It's such pretty fabric - looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

My quilt is at the same stage as yours! I hate cutting into brand new fbric, I have to build up to it! Mine is going to be blue and white, jut bought a few bits on Etsy to add a bit of extra combination choices. Friday evening will be my homealone night and I intend to open your Chocolate bag that you sent me! Best wishesxx

There could never be a truer saying, definitely support staff. The material looks absolutely wonderful, I can't wait to see the progress.
