Sunshine At My Window

There is nothing better than to sit soaking up the sunshine on a comfy windowseat, feeling a little guilty pleasure at having some time out just to sit and sew, whilst listening to the radio.

I am working on this quilt. It is a design by Kim McLean called Flower Pots and I am using a palette of Kaffe Fasset colours.

I am sewing the applique shapes by hand, using a very simple needleturn method, which I find very relaxing and addictive !

I hope you all have a great weekend, doing the things you love to do the most, with the people you love.

My gosh, it's stunning Sally. I am very impressed and humbled, i have just made my very first quilt and it looks like a kindergartener may have made it (apologies to kindergartners, i love that sweet unsophisticated art) but really, i wonder if i'll ever learn to do what you've done here.

I would like it very much if i lived near you and if you gave lessons.

enjoy your sunny corner!
lots of love,
