First of all, I hope everyone is healthy and following the government guidelines for this terrible coronavirus bug. My best wishes to anyone suffering at this moment in time. I hope you make a full recovery.
Well I am lucky that in this clamp down on social gatherings I can happily amuse myself with my hobbies. I have been busy with my projects, but to confess I haven’t actually done a single stitch today, so in no particular order:-
Cross stitch – my cups cross stitch is developing slowly but surely.
Here is where I was at the end of February …..
and here is where i am now …..
Patchwork – I have been busy cutting out the parts required for my Old Rose Window Quilt. It takes quite a long time sorting out the various colour ways but here are a few examples of some that I have prepared
And here are a few in various states of completion
And these are finished …..
Each square measures 6.5 inches, and I have calculated that I will need 8 blocks for the width and 12 blocks for the length. (for a quilt measuring 52 inches by 78 inches , minus any borders).
That’s 96 blocks – I have 14 completed blocks and 15 semi finished. Wish me luck!!
That’s all for now.

Lovely blocks…A scrappy delight! Nice progress of the teas cup project.
Wonderful progress on both the quilt and the tea cups. The quilt design is quite interesting and I love all the different colors you’re using 🙂
