And a little bit of knitting too

Not a lot going on here this week. The weekend was mostly spent clearing out the garage in preparation for the cavity wall insulation which was done today. Hopefully we will be toasty warm at home next winter and save a fortune on the fuel bills. That will probably ensure a warm winter next year. I did find time however to plant some pretty primulas to brighten up the front door step and get in the mood for spring.

I made a concerted effort on the quilt this weekend and on Friday and Saturday managed to sew another 8 blocks, only 4 more to go. I have to concentrate or it all goes wrong and there is more unpicking than sewing. Here are a small selection. I am still worried about putting all those colours together though.

I found a knitted UFO while looking for something else the other day so I have decided to finish it. A little summer cardigan I started in spring 2006. It is knit in a sirdar cotton I paid £16 for then I went and bought a very similar one for £3 in a discount clothing store

And finally a note for Amanda :- my sister- in-law (Hi Chris) bought a Bernina that did cost more than a small family car. She loves her machine and just drives hubby's car instead. She did go for lots of lessons to know how to get the best out of its many functions so make sure there is a good back up service too.

Happy Quilting xx

Hi, I have the best distraction on earth.....a bernina sewing machine! Chelsea and I form a disorderly line...."it's my turn", "no, please let me just finish this," "No I have had another idea" etc. etc.I will never get to read a blog, answer an email, phone my mother ever again. I have booked 3 lessons and will take them over a month to learn as much as I can. Exciting....
