Miniature Hearts all done

Here we are, my miniature hearts quilt is completed - it measures in at around 12" x 10" and one of my work mates loved it so much that I'm making a cream version with dark blue hearts on now especially for her as she's redecorating her bedroom in those colours - she doesn't know about that yet, so shhhhhh, don't tell her :o)

This was such fun to do - small enough to finish quickly but not too fiddly - I can feel a range of them in all different colours coming on

Sarah had a Regional rugby match against the West Midlands on Sunday - in all the time I've been watching her play I have never been so cold - the weather was fair but the north wind blowing directly at us across the pitch was what we call in Yorkshire a lazy wind because it goes through you instead of round you. Brrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

Still it was definitely worth it - they didn't actually win the match, it was a close call at 5-12, but the bonus result of the day was that Sarah and one of her club mates have been selected for the final squad of 22 who will represent the South West South region for the U18s age group at the National Ladies Rugby Festival in May.

Sorry Jane, I shan't be able to call in to give you a stitchery tutorial as they've moved it from Rugby to Lichfield this year.

I only have one more day at school this week as it's Easter with a Bank Holiday on both Friday and Monday and I swapped my day off from Monday to Thursday so I get a long 5 day weekend - who knows I might even get my sewing area tidied up - don't hold your breath though :o)

What a pretty little quilt. Ahhhhhh a 5-day week-end, enjoy it to the hilt! I can just imagine how that wind felt from your description.

Great little quilt Anne. Congrats to Sarah - she must be stoked!

And I have taken tomorrow and Tuesday off so I have a six-day 'weekend'. We're not at home though, so there will be no tidying being done here!

Happy Easter to you :)

Congrats to Sarah! Don't remind me of the Yorkshire wind, I shall not want to come back LOL

Lovely little quilt.
Everyone loves your ideas, & your pretty quilts. One of these days, when you have a bit of 'spare time' haha, you should write a book!
Have a lovely Easter Weekend!

Anne, The quilt looks great. Those hearts must be tiny. But since I have done a little applique for the Dear Jane, it doesn't look nearly as daunting as it would have before.
I know that wind, we get it here in Boston, chills you to the bone. Watching those girls play rugby must be somethin' else. I'd love to see it. Love Stacy
