In Full Bloom

It is hard to beat being tucked up at home in front of the fire when it's cold and wet outside. Lots of lovely rain yesterday, and lots of mucking around with gutters and pipes to catch it all - the joys of living on tank water.

I have finished my latest In Full Bloom block, Flower Pots.

My Hexagon Star has been appliqued to the background with surprisingly few bumps. I'm amazed that I was able to keep it flat.  That means I should hurry up making these long hexie borders.

Out for Italian for a girls night tonight - you know the ones you see at school, or the supermarket, or racing by at kids sport - and you finally get together once or twice a year. None of them are stitchers, but I won't hold that against them, it should be a fun night.

Enjoy your weekend, and keep warm. It's so cold that maybe you should start a new quilt!
