IT HAS BEEN...

... a Do-Your-Own-Thing day .....organised by Congleton Quilt Group to-day x

I had the oldest grandson for a sleep-over last night .. so poor boy had to get up EARLY... for a 13 yr old anyway xx... so that I could take him home on the way xx .. poor boy all his mates were still in bed .... well it was 09.25 !!x

I finished the log cabin mini quilt...


...the back is a fleece blanket from PoundStretcher..


....so soft and squishy.. and Non-moving .. remember the grey one.. groan?... and is a lovely plum/purple colour

I made a start on the next shawl ...


......it is a beautiful mix of colours that remind me of bonfire night xx LOVE IT x... it looks a bit brighter in the picture than it really is in the flesh x

.....AND I worked on my retirement quilt .. that may well take another TWO years before it is done xx .. phew I was busy xx lol x

Hope you had a crafty day too x

Diane xx

Love the log cabin quilt Diane, it looks big for a mini quilt, or were the blocks mini? Hee hee always good to get a teenager up early!! Love the fleece backing colour too. Your new shawl wool looks wonderful. You sure have been busy.

That mini log cabin is wonderful! The strips are so tiny!!! With that wonderful backing, it is going to be the absolute BEST snuggly quilt! --Terry
