Excuses to Sew.

I do not really need an excuse to sew, but I do have one this week. It is so cold and miserable outside so definitely no work to be done in the garden. As I am typing this it is beginning to snow.
 I have a small wood burner in my sewing room, and my lovely husband has kept a good supply of logs coming my way.
Sewing on the flat crumb catcher.
Edge of quilt with borders.

 I have finished my log cabin top, including the flat crumb catcher and a two inch border. My friend Pam who was visiting, (also a quilter) tells me the American quilters call it a Zinger strip. I suppose it is really a bit zingie!
Not able to do any more until I get some backing fabric and Wadding or Batting as the quilters across the pond call it. 

So I have been a busy bee, pedal to the metal (as Eleanor Burns would say)  and made six Birthday presents. The sewing group I belong to has six of the girls all born in February, and we always exchange little gifts, so I am all prepared now. Just have to buy cards.

View up the road from my sewing room.

This is the view out of one of my sewing room windows. If this keeps up there will be no sewing at the Bee tomorrow, lots of the girls live in very rural areas. so they will not be able to get there.

Not all good today either, I thought I would do a little washing. First I turned a whole wooly wash PINK and as my friends will tell you I am most definitely not a pink person. My lovely cream cashmere socks are now barbie pink, yuck! and to crown it all I washed my husbands jeans with his leather wallet in the pocket, (all contents now drying out in front of the wood burner).One cross Bunny.....

View out another window.

Will write another post if we make it to the Bee tomorrow.

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