Nigel has been over to the flat a couple of times but without me - tonight I drew the taxi service straw as Nick had football training.
I've worked four full days this week too - year end is creeping up on us and we have the added delight of nurturing in a new accounts package County wide - whichever clown decided to schedule that around year end really ought to be shot - the person's probably on 5 times my salary too!
But back to stitching..................
I promised to show the finished baby quilt top
and here it is - a little on the pale and delicate side but pretty for a little girl - I already have a blue one finished for the alternative eventuality.
Then completely different - an African style design for a block for the birthday swap - reverse applique this time - the black fabric is behind the orange. The blue borders are authentic fabric from South Africa just to complete the ensemble. I haven't done any reverse applique for quite a while - I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed it.
