My name is Collette and I am a quilter from Scotland. I have been a patchworker and quilter for over a decade and love to share what I have been making here.

Spring has sprung!

Hello!  It has here anyway!  Look, I got the washing on the line today and even sat out with a cup of tea after hanging it up.  Then the kids returned with Colin and the dog and peace was shattered.  Still this is life!

With the kids being on holiday there hasn't been much sewing going on here at all.  But I did manage this on Sunday night.  I decided to add more to my mini quilt for the latest swap I am in.  I really like where this is going but I think one more border and then to the quilting!

Remember this baby quilt?  It is flying off to Australia as a lovely person has bought it from my Etsy shop!  As always I am a little sad to see it go but glad that someone loves it enough to give it a new home!

I am thinking about some new fabric purchases too.  Colin gave me a little gift to allow me to splurge a little on some more goodies for my stash.  I am, however, a terrible procrastinator when it comes to choosing!

I take FOREVER!  I can't be the only one surely?
Hope you are all enjoying the Easter hols.

    I'm the same when it comes to spending money/voucher presents - I like to save them until I see something I really, really, really want! I know a few people that can help you spend it, if you like!

  4. I know thіѕ іf off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming hаving a blog likе yours wοuld coѕt a
    ρretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
