It’s a soft, grey, January day here in old Plymouth town and there was some talk of snow on an earlier weather forecast. I will believe it when I see it.
I have just checked the metoffice site and there is a weather warning – perhaps, perhaps not. It looks like my travel plans for tomorrow may be cancelled. I was quite looking forward to a day out – what a shame.
Friday saw the arrival of some lovely bits of fabric on which I have spent far too much money. I bought some more fabric for a bag (3 different designs). Included in this stash is a new jelly roll which, as a pennance for indulging myself, I had mad an agreement (with myself) that I couldn’t start it, couldn’t even unroll it, until I had finished the Puttin on the Ritz jelly roll.
I started out to make another small quilt but I had 15 strips left and once I had started sewing it was clear that it wasn’t enough. So this is what I made instead.
It’s a baby changing bag 14x12x6 with a matching changing mat, comme-ca:
So now, as well as finishing the Boy Blue quilt, I can embark, comparatively guilt free, on new quilt journeys. I have some lawn prints waiting to be turned into a pinwheel quilt, I have some Sherbert Pips collection which are going to be one with stars made of 4 patch blocks and half square triangles and I have the Morris & Co ones which I am keeping for me.
They will form the quilt for our new bedroom in what hopefully will be our dream new home. If you all send prayers or positive thoughts or good vibes I’m sure that can only help.
