Back to the drawing board

Hmmm, it appears to have gone wrong .....
Ignore the tea bag holder in the back ground!!
The middle square sticks out like a sore thumb - its all the wrong colours.  I really like it on its own, but its way to beige against that brilliant white!
So, back to the drawing board for me.  I have finished the 'tree' for the other side of the runner.  I am going to wait for the christmas fabric to arrive from the modern christmas fabric swap before I make more wonky stars for the other side.
The middle square won't be wasted: it will be recycled in to something else festive

I have been cracking on with this:

Nothing huge or fancy, just a little quilt for a friend of mine to take up to a childrens hospital when she goes up there in a few weeks.  They are opening a new ward and I hope this can make someone happy.  The wonderful Judith gave me the inspiration for this - something I have wanted to do for a long time.

This evening I am going out for a girly night in :-)  A few of us from work are getting together at a collegues house for a takeaway, pudding, wine and a good natter - it also happens to be someones birthday: Happy Birthday Kim!

Made her these for her birthday - hope she likes them!


  1. Happy birthday Kim!! I`m sure she`ll love her pressies and have a great night. Here come the girls!

    Love your girl quilt Catherine - great idea. I love all this pay it forward.

  2. Hope you have a great night.

  3. Hope you have a great night, love the presents you've made for the birthday girl!

  4. Shame about that middle block for the runner because it is so beautiful, but you are right they don't go together. Lovely star quilt for the hospital. Great gift for the children! Hope you had a good girlie night.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message
