Today....

 I got up at 6.30 to go for a walk but it was raining (yippeeeeee) so I headed to my  sewing room as everyone was still asleep. I started to do some ironing  and kept looking at my horrible ironing board  cover, it has burn marks and a big rip so I decided to make a new one. I was so pleased how it turned out.
 What do you think?
 After that I made a cute little pin cushion out of tilda fabric, it turned out so cute,
 Then I made 11 apple blocks  to go with my  star and leaf blocks, more on that later.
 I made a granny smith apple block.
 I even got a bit peckish and had to try one, they are yummy.
 After lunch it was time for lunch box baking , so I made muesli bars.....
 Orange and raisin muffins....
and choc chip muffins, you can be sure these will be the first to go.

Tonight I'm settling in on the couch with my stitching and Downton Abbey,

What did you get up to today?

Wow, what a busy day - love, love, love your ironing board cover.....could possibly love one or two of those muffins also ;-)

Goodness! What an amazing day you've had Lizzie!!! I wish I could get up the gumption to get just one of those projects done!! I think about it ... and then take so long to get around to actually starting, that I only get part of one done before I have to go to bed or do something else!! About the only thing I can just sit down and start on whenever the urge strikes is my stitching!!! ... enjoy your evening!! LUVing Downton Abbey - I've just started getting stuck into my first season!! x

Love what you did with the ironing board cover..you have had a very productive day! Very satisfying I am sure.

Sounds like a great start to your day! Don't you love it when you get a lot done early in the morning? I wish we could watch Downton Abbey tonight too, but it's not on. Are you on Season 4? We just finished Season 3 in January and will have to wait a while for Season 4. I think I should re-watch Season 1 as I missed the first few shows.
