Two Finishes.

A couple of finishes have gone in the post, and will be at a craft fair in the West Country soon.
The pink and green fuchsia quilt had its final border, was quilted and bound.
Sorry about the bad photo, it was such a sunny day, but we must not complain. Here in the UK they are so few and far between at this time of year.

Another Baby quilt,(a square in a square,) so quick and easy to make and such fun.

Now I have been playing around with short socks, yep, you know me "Do I write it down as I knit". Nope. So heres hoping I can make the second one the same. :0)

Looking out of the window, it looks like sparrows bath time. The fun bit for me is the branch above with the second sitting on, or are they just spectators.. who knows ..

Keep safe and keep stitching .......................Doti...

Summer is Fading.

Summer has indeed faded and Autumn and Winter are on their way.
Our little patio, where we sit and have coffee gets very little sun now, and I have brought some of the plants in for the winter. Some will have to brave it, and as the patio is quite sheltered, hopefully will make it through.

The last of the summer harvest has also been brought in, to ripen up on the kitchen window sill.

You know summer has gone when you have to put tomatoes on your shopping list. :0)

We have the last guests for the season in our holiday cottage, and when they leave we shut it up and go off on our own vacation. To renew our energies to start the winter clean, ready for next season..

The October blocks are done for the Siblings Together quilt and have been posted off to the Mama of the month Jenny.  This quilt is going to look great and she put a link up that some of you might like
It's a lovely Quilt and is now on my To-Do List..

I am the Mama for November, and as we will be away, I am in the process of writing the details up, which my good friend will post for me at the end of this month to each of the girls.

The background fabric is a 10 1/2 inch square. I am hoping they will like a little Appliqué, it is a very simple block, which I am hoping will make a child very happy.
 I always try and make my owls look cross-eyed as they look so cute..

Print out on A4 paper

Now to finish writing up the details, and then Lists for going away..

Keep safe and keep stitching..................Doti...
