Gorgeous quilt and some stitching

Yesterday, Paddy brought in this amazing quilt she has made. It is a Helen Stubbings design that Hobbysew sold a while ago as a BOM. It is so beautiful and Paddy has made it for a special friend's 70th birthday. What a wonderful gift. It has been beautifully, professionally quilted.

 I have been stitching a little trying to keep up with all my ongoing projects. I am also trying to tidy my sewing room and TRYING to sort a few things ready for some new cupboards in the near future, It is giving me nightmares as I keep thinking it won't all fit back into the room!!!! In theory there should be more storage. I drew up a "coffee time" block for The story of my day quilt as I had to replace another animal block!
 The Splendid Sampler is certainly keeping me on my toes. The machine is block 27 and the dresden plate is number 26.

 Here are my appliqued chooks for Anderson's farm.

Oh Sylvia, you make me feel soo lazy! Love the pix of you all on Mother's Day. Getting the house ready for its visitors for the Hay Festival, we're off to the Lake District for the week.
