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.

Friday finishes and spam (not the mystery meat)!

I HATE SPAM!  Both the tinned meat and the internet type.  Lately I keep getting lots of annoying spam comments on my blog.  I get great satisfaction in pressing the "remove forever" box on blogger when deleting these comments.

Why do we get them?  Where do they come from?  Can anyone tell me??

Some finishes this week amazingly....

Baby Churn Dash ( for sale in my Etsy shop now)

And a Bee block for the lovely Sarah who is Queenie this month over at the Hipbees!

I am off to tidy up my mess and get ready for the kids who will make a mess of their own in around 15 minutes!  

We are planning to visit Stirling castle on Sunday or Monday so look out for some obligatory photos of me standing next to some cannons etc with the kids!

Speak soon
