Back at the machine

Yes, after the week just gone I am so pleased
to be back sewing. There were a few difficult days during the week
but I made it, and next up will be the results of the
pathology tests - fingers crossed!

More Scrappy Mountains - the last month!!
Next month we will hopefully be putting the blocks together, or at least
laying them out ready for sewing.












I must count up how many Mountains there are and work
out the best size for the quilt, my guess is I have too many 
but the extras could go on the back or be used in something else.
If you would like to have a peek and see what everyone else has been busy with this
last month of RSC 2015 then hop over HERE.

The weeds have suddenly shot up in the garden in my time out of action
but so have the roses, lavender and wallflowers in the front garden,
here's one of the very first roses we planted when we
bought this place in 1985, if I remember correctly she is
Mrs F F Prentiss


she spreads her arms all over the place but has a beautiful perfume
so she is forgiven any rambling! 

Time for a cup of tea - this next week will be spent working out
future projects.

My thoughts today are with the people of France, particularly in Paris, and the
victims of this horrendous happening and their loved ones.

More lovely Scrappy Mountain blocks. Nice job with all of those light and dark floral prints!

My fingers are crossed for you.

Beautiful blocks....I would be itching to get them layed out by now. Make a banner or wall hanging with any extras. I recognize some of the fabric from my stash in there, too.
More prayers for a good report. :)

Hope the test results are all good. Looks like you should have plenty of blocks to choose from for your quilt.

Glad you are back at it (and I hope for positive results for you). As always your colours are glorious. :-)

Hope your weeks continue use to get better and better as Mrs Prentiss keep spreading her perfume around these next few weeks. As usual your colour combos are lovely!

It's so nice to be able to visit Down Under when you have things blooming. Meanwhile we're under a low grey sky with heavy rain and gusty winds. Can't wait to see what you do with your mountain blocks!

So excited I found your blog. I have been wanting to make a delectable mountain quilt different from traditional patterns. You've inspired me to explore some great patterns.
