Inspiration .......

This year I wanted to do a picture a day ... of something that gives me pleasure....

I am struggling to remember to do a picture each day... but I have a little side line blog HERE....  and once a week I am linking to Alsha's space to share a photo a week....

This week's word is "Inspiration" and this is my picture....


This last week I have spent a lot of time quilting ....

the blocks in the quilt are done differently... sort of 'sampler' style but I wanted the quilting also to be subtle and highlight the colours and design of the quilt....










 

This is the quilt I made in the Aiming for Accuracy Quiltalong   

... now for trimming and binding.....


... on the handsewing front .. this naughty, naughty face seems to have appeared....


Righto, Gotto Go.....
