On the plus side....domestic bliss!

Well it has been a busy blustery saturday, hence I spent time clearing the garden in front of my garage which had become a little bit overgrown and a rubbish tip for passers by! !12 bins of garden rubbish later and 3 trips to the tip, I have time to get on with a few projects. But first, a lovely picture of sunrise at 5am this morning!

With the chores out of the way, I did a bit more of the plus quilt which I have been meaning to do for a while-it is in Domestic Bliss by Moda.

A little hand sewn project for tv watching is the hexi tote bag I am doing form the book Natural Patchwork by Suzuko Koseki. 

I made a lot of these on the train to London last week when I ent up to work for Crisis for the afternoon. 

And finally, this week is Lymington Ars week and an artist  friend of mine was exhibiting in town. I was lucky enough to nab a print of one of her paintings called Ducks! 

Just watched a good film-Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close- very moving story about a child who loses his father in 9/11. Need a few tissues for this one!



  1. Another beautiful quilt coming along there Heather. Love the duck picture too :)
