Oh, yes - everyone is thinking I've disappeared off the face of the earth! No, no - I really am starting to become the 'old Lurline' - maybe it is spring just around the corner! I've had a little tidy-up in 'My Studio' and found my Saffron Craig Fairy Quilt - nearly finished - top and bottom borders only to go - can I do it? - we'll see!

I've started a Kim McLean applique quilt - it was with a little trepidation I wondered if I had the ability to use Kaffe's fabrics - easy-peasey and I love it!
This is a gorgeous 1940 quilt - I would love to have bought it, but a little too expensive! I just love it and could have coped with the very poor workmanship - maybe I should make one of my own, though how hard would it be to capture the charm of this.
Whoohoo! It's that time of year again - thanks Donna, I'm in! It's fun to look forward to it all and really I would like to start a little stash of goodies to give at Christmas now!
Yes, Lizzie is here - lots of you will know her from A House in the Country! I've invited Girlfriends! to meet here here at lunch next Tuesday - what a buzz!
I have an urge - can't divulge because it involves the sewing machine - say lots of little prayers for me that I can stitch one lovely little project, lol!
Happy Weekend!
