Burning the midnight oil:
Last night I sewed into the wee small hours, thoroughly enjoying putting all the blocks together to make the inner part of my country quilt. I did not manage to completely sew all the rows together when I finally admitted it was time to get some shut eye. So this morning I joined the remaining two rows and here it is. So far so good and I love it. My mission today is the first border which comprises of alternative 1 1/2 inch squares. (a coloured square then a cream square followed by a coloured one etc...) Then a big search through the fabric stash to find a piece of fabric with enough yardage and appropriate to the style of the quilt, for the outer border. Fingers crossed that such a piece is waiting for me to discover, buried deep in one of the two draws full of checked fabric. So there we have it my day is all planned. I shall even throw in a few trips to the washing machine and the tumble dryer to balance it out but first a trip to kettle for a nice cuppa tea.
