It is indeed back to plan A to finish my UFO's this year. I keep all my quilts, including the ones ready to quilt on the spare bed, and as we had visitors coming they all had to be taken off and stored away . My husband offered to help, "bad move" as he spied a quilt I started making for him some two years ago, all basted and pinned and ready to go.. You know the rest without me telling you. No more playing with little toadstools, got to finish his quilt.

I was very surprised to see how much the blocks resembled the confetti block that I had made recently for Siblings together charity quilt, although this pattern came from Patternspot.com and I can't even find it now. I intend to echo quilt around the indigo blocks in red/maroon so watch this space.
My friend Anj from Meadow Yarns came up trumps with 15grams of the exact wool I needed to finish my little shawl, which was great so that will be one Christmas prezzie done.
My goodness, this has not been a good summer, but things are looking up in the garden at last. We always come in the back gate and I am now loving this view that greets you.
Going to finish the shawl first and then start on the Linen quilt.
Keep safe and keep stitching...Doti...
