big plans for this little pile

Well....after hearing about the death yesterday, of a very young beautiful person that was liked by all who knew her, I hit a bit of a downer. I was teary all day and have woken this morning feeling very down. Sometimes you ask yourself WHY?. Sometimes life isn't fair,

So as silent tears fell down my face last night I decided to do something that would take my mind a little off what had happened. Quite a few years back I ordered some Amy Butler fabric from the US. It is so darn expensive here in australia....
I have had it sitting there not doing anything, I recently made this stool frill with some of the greens I bought, but last night I decided that I would make a simple quilt, a colourful quilt, one that would be achievable for me!!!

I quickly went through my fabrics, and came up with this bundle...It's all cut, by scissors, ouch, and sorted and hopefully looks good once it's done.

We are getting a new bigger lounge set for our front room, which currently is only used for the kids to play the playstation in...it's a waste...so this new lounge is going in there once it comes in...we still have to degrout, regrout...(a horribly job!!!), paint, new skirting...my head hurts thinking about it, but it will be wonderful once it's finished, and the new colourful quilt won't match it, but it will make it cosy.

I will show you it once it's done, but it will take me a while...







Ok...well, that;s it for now
Until next time
lots of it
