Nifty Thrifty!

Having spent quite a bit of time visiting blogs and drinking coffee, I really must get my act into gear and go visit Mum. It has been a very relaxed, stress-free way to start the day!

Thought I would leave you with happy thoughts of quilting today - for some reason I just love this simple quilt made by Bonnie and I believe it will feature in her soon-to-be-released book, Scraps & Shirtails. They say "less is better" and this is probably a classic case of that - to me there seems to be some sort of vintage appeal and I can't wait to put my own special touch to it.

Happy weekend!
