breathtaking views

look at the views that welcomed me on my morning walk today -


what a perfect way to start the day!!

Now let me show you what I have been up to for the last 2 days....

the weather has been quite hot, so I have been hibernating indoors with the air conditioning on...

I have had these charm squares for some time, so pulled them out and lay them out on the floor, what to do huh...

a little bit of sewing here, and there, and a rejig around a little bit, and hey, we have these...

and then we have this!

needs some backing, quilting and binding - my shopping list is growing.

...and then I hunted out this fabric which I have had for absolutely ages and ages, and pieced this together....

and then... found this selection

and started some more piecing....

and a bit more..

but right now, I am going outside to dig a few more holes before it gets too hot to do so!

see you later...will need to drop back in for a long cool drink or four, or five...

Lots of lovely tops there.

I'm piecing backs as much as possible this year to use up stash. Daughter needed my merchant's chest for clothes so I am down to 2 bedside cupboards and a couple of trays, so it's messy in the craft room on top of the BOM mess I showed in my last post. Must de-clutter!
