As surely as the sun will rise...

Spring will come!
I took your suggestions and got up early (before the sun)
and sewed two blocks of this quilt
which had been sitting on the UFO pile for a while.
It's making me smile as I clean the house!
and yesterday was a good day for yellow
which is such a spring colour
two lovely fabrics and some much needed
salt and pepper pots.
Why are there only pepper pots at the op shop??

For Lora and Me today...


  1. Lovely floral spring looking blocks Deb. Sure to brighten your day.

  2. okay lady you really are an inspiration! I have dusted off the sewing machine and am sewing ( using that term loosely)for the first time in many many years and am relying on my clothing and textiles knowledge from 5th form!! which by the way is not huge!!! so wondering if you would have some free time to have a coffee and let me pick your brains about some basics that I am rather rusty on! and have some ideas about basic basic patterns for young girls???? thansk Deb i really am loving reading your Blog!!! xo Alexis
