Some quiet show and tell

Today has been a weird one.  It's been very hot, very windy, and now very rainy.  Four seasons in one day.  The end result is everyone here is 'ratty'.  Do you know what I mean?  I'm sure it's the wind.  Everyone gets short tempered and crabby and a little bit silly, but not in a good way.

I've had no time to do sewing today but I have a few show and tell posts I'd be pleased to show you over the next couple of days.

I had a book a few years ago that I adored - it was called 'P.S. I Love You' by Lynda Milligan and Nancy Smith.  This quilt was in it, and I loved it from the first moment I saw it.  It's all cut with templates, and made out of my very quickly diminishing box of pastels.  

I will probably have this one custom quilted on the long arm, if and when that day comes.  Yeah, it would look beautiful handquilted but I already have a waiting list of quilts for handquilting, and the current one on the frame is moving at a snail's pace.  I have to be sensible, don't I?

And conveniently I have a free Long Arm quilter who will do that for me if I ask her very nicely.  So that's the plan.

I hope you're having a fabulous weekend.  The wind has finally blown itself out here and the household is asleep and to be honest, I am loving the quiet.  But I need to get a halfway early night, so I'll say goodnight for now!


  1. Lovely quilt in pastels! It might be nice to have it quilted so you can use it this spring.

    1. Yes, I agree! Another job for me to do! Thanks for posting, Carole.
