A little to show!

Not sure where the last month has gone since I posted our delicious crumpets but there has been a lot of time spent away from home. I have managed to finish 3 of these Sashiko panels. They are good therapy, don't need too much concentration but the end result is great. I have ordered a few more and the eventual plan is to make a quilt incorporating them all. I am sticking to navy, white, red and blue. This photo isn't great as I haven't ironed the block yet!

I did manage a super quick trip to Spotlight the other day. Had SH with me which was probably good for the budget! Picked up some spots which you can never have too much of, some threads, a cute Christmas fat quarter and some fabric for a quilt backing that may or may not ever be made!!!
