I have been busy in the kitchen over the weekend...as well as cleaning the fridge I have also done a little baking.
I made a couple of fruit cakes, one to stay home (hubby loves them in his lunch box) and one for the grand-kids (they love it any time, but lunch box is OK) and
I have not neglected my stitching as I have completed another block from "Cake Walk" quilt. It is just great to sit in front of the television and do some stitching, catching up on the latest mini-series and just relax - all at the same time.
I think this is block 5 and I have block 6 in the hoop......will do some more tonight! It is surprising how quickly these are getting done.
I also need to complete the quilt I am making for my grand-daughter as it is her birthday shortly. I have done the top and now have to go to Spotlight and get some batting. Have lots of little bits left over from other projects but nothing big enough for a single bed sized quilt. I do have to paint the faces on! The pattern says to stitch them but I don't think they will last and I am going to paint them on instead.
The pattern is "Bella Babushka" from Cinderberry Stitches and I have used the same fabric as Natalie has. I'm sometimes not game to diverge too far from the original!
After having gone through a drought in the mail delivery department, last Thursday saw 2 parcels in the box. I had recently placed an order for some fabric and just when I was feeling a bit down along came this surprise! I saw this fabric on a Quilt shop e-mail and knew I just had to have some!
Until the next instalment.
