Today Is The Day!!!

Pam at A New Life In Wales  has been showing us some wonderful scrappy quilts lately and I have fallen in love with them.
Yesterday I managed to have a fabric sort out and I have a pile of offcuts of Christmas fabric. Today is the day I will start on cutting them up into strips and begin a new little adventure in quilting.
Up until now I have only done either simple block or strip quilts so I am excited to see what I can achieve.

Woke up to quite a dull morning but now the sun is breaking through. Looks like it will be a good day to finish off the windows I started yesterday and sweep the rest of the yard so that will be first on my list for today.
After sorting out the freezers I left a pack of sausages out to defrost and hubby has requested Toad in the Hole for our meal today. Not one of mine or DD's favourite meals but it will do.

No yellow sticker bargains at the supermarket last night except for some manky looking fish and some eggs but I did pick up some Italian chicken sausage at half price. I have been wanting to try it for a while. I'm thinking I might make it into tiny meatballs to cook with some garlic and baby plum tomatoes and serve it with some courgetti. A nice light meal for DD and I one night next week.

Well as usual I am going to have a coffee before I start anything and then I shall get through my jobs as quickly as I can so that I can start cutting up this fabric.

Have a lovely day.


  1. Looking forward to seeing how you get on with the scrappy quilt.

  2. Well done you, I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Just remember the saying, if you don't like one bit, you haven't cut it small enough. If I find a pile of little bits I sew them onto paper. Once it is covered pull the paper off and away you go, a nice scrappy piece to add to the quilt.

  3. Looking forward to seeing your quilt come together :-)

  4. You must be feeling better today...can't wait to see the quilt ideas. x


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
