Monday .....

I love my morning cup of coffee ..... I generally only have one a day so it needs to be a good one in a pretty cup!!

In an attempt to be more regular about blog posts and also to plan my short term sewing projects I'm joining up with Cath at Bits 'n Bobs for Design Board Monday

As per usual I have several projects on my 'design wall' (Hubz calls Design house for some odd reason!)

This is a quilting design I am doing for a suduko quilt... so each block is going to be different but all the same colours will have the same quilting design ... then I'll add joined ribbon for the sashing and wiggly lines in the borders

 I've started tracing the tea cup teddies from Michelle's latest pattern.. these will fit in so well with my teacups and teapots that I am presently working on

Today I prepared 4 blocks for the sampler quilt which we will work on tomorrow

... my storage box for the blocks is overflowing....

.. the other one on the go is the binding for this huge big scrappy quilt.... I only do it if it's a bit cooler in the evening ... I'm over half way...

.. the stitching next to my chair is the third of my four teapots...

I did finish the second one over the weekend.....

So that's what's on my Design House Board this week... what about you?

Cath's link up is HERE if you feel like joining in too...

This Friday is FNSI with Wendy... sign ups are HERE
