Sunday Sewing

I got a lovely surprise in the post on Friday, it was my christmas present from my friend Stephany, all the way from Belgium. She has made me a beautiful heart garland. I thought it looked really sweet hanging on my kitchen shelf. If I was lucky enough to have a sewing room it could go in there but alas I haven't so I'll leave it here where I can admire it while I'm cooking. Thankyou Steph, I love it. So pretty.





Also pretty is my new rose that has flowered for the first time, the colour is so soft and delicate.
I love roses.




Today I did a bit of sewing on my first new quilt for the year, this is for my youngest son, The fabric is called Children at play. I thought a simple square with some sashing was all it needed as I didn't have a lot of fabric to play with. Its looking good so far.

Back to work tomorrow which will be nice, just for the week then I'm having some more time off to spend with the boys and hubby. We are planning on going fishing and to the beach.


Have a great week and happy sewing.
