You know when I first saw a Union Jack quilt over at this blog I really liked it but at the time I never thought I would be making my very own. That was until my dear friend Cathy wanted to make one and she asked me if I'd like to join her.
Well I never turn down an opportunity to have a sewing session with Cathy so we made one block together. I absolutely loved the way it went together and it was so different from anything I had made before.
So I have been having a few sewing sessions of my own and have made a few more blocks. Stay tuned for more on this quilt as its going along so well. I want to make 20 blocks altogether.
I also cut into my bliss jelly roll that's been hiding in the cupboard for over 2 years.
I started making a quilt called Sparkling gemstones from a jelly roll book.
This is how it goes together.
This week my garden has burst into bloom yet again so I just had to share some pics. Look at this beautiful Lilac. I have picked a bunch and have them in my sewing room, the scent is divine,
You see the perfectly manicured lawn. well thats down to my husband,. The garden is his domain but occasionally I'm allowed to potter with him.
Bright yellow daisies make the yard very cheerful.
I get to enjoy all this from my sewing room window.
This lawn is the perfect cricket pitch for the boys during summer.
Have a wonderful weekend, I hope you find some sewing time. My Union Jack blocks are calling me. Bye.
