This and That

  • My Mandolin Quilt epp block is finished,  I love how it turned out, now I need to ensure I use it in something, I'm thinking a cushion will be best.
  • This was the very first quilt I ever made, you can read about it here.
  • My first sunflower of the season is blooming, grown from seed too.  Fingers crossed it survives the wind we are getting at present.
  • A lot of my requested books turned up at once, so I think my summer reading is sorted for a little while.  I'm currently enjoying The First Princess of Wales by Karen Harper.
  • My tomato plant has fruit.  This is a grafted plant which will apparently produce both  red and yellow cherry tomatoes, it will be interesting to see which colour is more prolific.
Hoping you are all having a wonderful week and that the Christmas madness is not too bad where ever you may be.


  1. Very winding here too! I hope your sunflower makes it xx

  2. P.S your new header looks great!

  3. Beautiful EPP block. I have so many cushions now, it is my way of using up blocks and also trying them out to se if I like them. x

  4. I'm sure I recognise some of those fabrics from your first quilt - obviously you had good instincts right from the beginning! Merry Xmas to you too... hope you have a great holiday.

  5. Merry Christmas Julie! (For some reason I didn't find the place to comment your latest post...)
