This time it's a Rainy Day..

The weather has changed for the worse so it's a day to light the wood burner and sit and hand sew.

I have been working on a mystery four part quilt, Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt  by Leanne Beasley.

Block one is finished and I have started on Block two.

Block 1.
 I am well pleased, and using up lots of fabric from my stash as the quilt calls for 21 different fabrics. Though some are very small pieces, and some of my treasured Oakshott fabric left over from the Floral Impressions quilt.

Block 2 work in progress. 

I know, I can hear you saying she was never going to do any more hand turned appliqué :0)
Well there is only a little on this quilt, and it does look nice with the stitchery..

Patshyn Catrin is the mama for May in our Siblings Together group and she has chosen a block that I have never done before, its a Double Heart Block. A tutorial can be found over on her blog.

It was fun to make and is rather effective, it looks paper pieced but it's not and very quick to make.

I have not posted a view from my back door for a long while, the daffodils are all finished now and I have quite forgotten what else flowers in that bed. We will have to wait and see. 
Hopefully Mr M will have put his ladders away too..

View from the back door.
I had thought there were tulips but looking out of another window I now see where the tulips are.

Sorry about the reflection from the window, but much to wet to venture out today..

Now to sit and work on block 2 of the mystery Quilt.

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