What an exciting parcel I received today. I am a big fan of Edyta Sitar and her beautiful quilts. I ordered some books and a couple of patterns and also a 2013 diary.

When I finish with Mrs Billings coverlet I see my next project will be something from these books and patterns.

A good way to use up fabric in my cupboard :)

Until next time

I had a nice sewing day today with my good friend Leanne (Lizzy the quilter - link below)

We had a visit to calico crossroads in Exeter. We sat, sewed, ate and chatted for the whole day.

I love my early Christmas gifts and will be making my own delivery very soon :) 

A beautiful little quilt from Leanne ♥

Cookies and fabric which I know just what to do with 

The next part of Mrs Billings. 4 patch blocks for the next border. Not long now ! almost at the finish line and ready for the next project :)

Today was a great day. Thank you Leanne for visiting and for my AWESOME gifts ♥

Until next time

After tracing almost 350 little triangles for Mrs Billings Coverlet, I decided to do some baking as a distraction.

I am not a cake decorator LOL and never will be but I am quite pleased with the outcome (I think)

As for Mrs Billings! the large diamond borders are finished. Update coming soon.

Until next time
