Happy Weekend - Again!

This week has flown by again - I'm looking forward to a weekend sewing, so here's hoping.

Oooh, look what I have bought through the week - a gorgeous new book - I'm really spreading my wings and that's a good feeling. Grandson Tyler turns 18 on 26 March, needs a new cuddle quilt for winter, so hopefully I can put these gorgeous, wonky, log cabins into a quilt for him. I will make time to do a trial run over the weekend! Let's see if it is Liberation!

I am starting a nice collection of novelty prints - I so envy the gorgeous ones seen on various blogs and really, I don't think there is a lot around over here! Very cutesy! On the right, a wonderful piece of fabric - I only bought 20cm at $40 a metre - about the texture of osnaburg and looks like it has been through the wash a 100 times - just love it, so vintagey!

My priority this weekend is to try to make further headway on my Comfort quilts to warm our survivors - there's still a few scary incidents over that way, so prayers for safety continue!

Again - wish me luck that I don't get too many interruptions over the weekend!

Hugs♥

It's funny, I do almost all my sewing during the week and run errands and spend time with DH on the weekends.
