You know when you have spring fever when you prefer painting   your house and furniture and staying outside and gardening rather than coming inside the house  and stitching.When I do come inside I am harassed by short people who have joined the young quilters and want to enter the next challenge.          number ten, who is eight years old has made a small hanging all by herself. 

number six is making a long vertical wall hanging. she has been practising her machine quilting which is better than mine- its embarrassing being bettered by a twelve year old.

 and I have done this months BOM  for the pea room, I finished it with at least ten minutes to spare, did last months too, no time to photograph it....

also been making a smaller version of a turning twenty for my expected grandson

Have also started on a book wrapping from Teeshas circus- like little ravioli parcels, bit different to teeshas--more planned and regular no windows or holes less eccentric..... 

And finally, this is what is mostly distracting me at present,  little Danny- twelve hours old and as beautiful as the uncle he was named for but will never meet, it will be good to have a Danny in the family again


  1. Daniel's a cracker! What a lovely way to be distracted :-) Your small people are making great efforts with their quilting. Lovely fabrics too!

  2. Oh what an edible little one! Lovely array of work, too.

  3. Have had similar bursts of spring fever myself... though no small people for me. Welcome, Danny.


I get very excited when I get a comment. So do please send me a comment, thankyou.
