A Week at Home

Now that would be a fantastic opportunity if I wasn't flattened by a head cold. My Boss has ordered me to spend the week at home. Don't need to be asked twice thank you very much.

I actually felt a bit better yesterday and did a little sewing. Sorry about the image - I blame the camera and not the snuffle-headed operator.

Three more borders to go and the top is finished. The quilt was actually meant to be finished for giving this weekend but that's okay. I've been behind schedule all this year. Should have the Christmas presents out by Easter at this rate.

I'll also share with you a little self indulgence (as if this blog isn't enough!)

25 fat quarters of Faye Burgos' Sachet Potpourri. I blame Faye for this. She designed this fabric. She does this a lot you know.

My friend Kelli sent me this fantastic pincushion. Thanks Kelli - I love it!

It feels amazing and the colours are marvellous.

Happy Stitching
