This, That And The Other!!!

I do so love rag quilting.
Yesterday I got one row of squares quilted and trimmed and started to assemble them into a strip before it was time to cook and spend a little time with DD.
Today I am hoping to get a little more done as we are just having a cheese and pineapple salad for tea so no cooking.....although I will be making bread.

We made the decision last night that we will be going to the quilt show in August at the NEC.
DD is not a crafter but she has a great interest in anything I do and she loves shopping for craft materials and tools with me. In fact I could give her some money and send her out shopping and she would come back with things that I would have chosen myself.
Anyway....once I have been to Derby on Saturday to buy fabric to make the apron/dress pattern I bought there will be some serious saving going on ready for August.

It's sunny and windy today. Bitterly cold but I should get some washing dried outside for a change.

Right bread to be made and sewing to do....and that will be my day today.
What are you all up to?
