So this morning I took my cup of tea back to bed

happy mothers day...


Hope all had a happy Mothers Day...
My day was spent relaxing...with a walk to the Sunday market...
some gardening and or course some sewing
...and some eating!


New books with Mothers day the excuse to buy them...
They came from the Book Depository ...which I only just discovered.
Love the whimsical garden quilt with the little birds...excited
about making it!!

flying geese...




Anita at Bloomin Workshop is giving a tutorial for this 
flying geese pattern...so I just had to try it!
I thought it would make a romantic quilt in the colours
of this fabric I bought last week ...just add some toile!


Then the latest Homespun magazine arrived...


...and I liked this!


So made a couple of blocks...thinking to make it 
in green, blue, red with maybe some gold.

It's fun to be inspired...
