Sunshine . . .
. . . in the sky again, thank goodness, and in a cyberfriend's generosity. Mandy of Crazy Daisy blog has given me, along with 11 others, a Sunshine Award! Read all about it on her blog, February 6th and the previous post. Mandy is a great knitter and also does some unusual bits of embroidery. And she has a nice cat! Thank you very much, Mandy!
And at long last I am getting together a patchwork quilt for a granddaughter, and you could say there is something sunshiney about the middle section. She likes yellow apparently. Ok, I'm stretching things a bit!
It is pegged up on curtains over the shelves in my workroom. It is quite a while since I did some straightforward patchwork, or made something bed-sized.
Today I got a border round it, made the backing, layered it all up on the table (useful 5 foot square, made by DH from 2 old doors) and tacked it. So just the quilting to do now (by machine), and some edging which will probably be some facing strips.
