Another day out and some new blocks.

Hunney and I went out again yesterday. We took the Electric tram from our home town Ramsey along the coast to Laxey. It was a lovely sunny day so we sat in the open car. While in Laxey we walked around in the glen

before heading for the beach where we bought lunch to take away and eat in the open air. We both enjoyed a lovely day.

I've also been busy making up blocks with the fabrics I recieved the other day. I've made pink and green log cabins.

I have a few more green cabins to make before I go on to make some sixteen patch blocks in the same fabrics.

I'm not sure where this is going, I'm sort of making it up as I go again. I do however have a bag of off cuts which I plan to use to make another scrappy style binding, I really do like the look of the one I put on my Loulee's Plates quilt.

The weather is abysmal today, it's pouring down, so I don't think we'll be doing much beyond the necessary grocery shopping. That means more time to sew! I will also spend some time looking through two new books, ''Quick and Easy Quilts'' and ''The Encyclopedia of Quilting and Patchwork Techniques''. I've had a quick look through both of them 2-3 times, but want to sit and look properly.

Such an absolutely lovely and serene picture! I'm thinking that would be a wonderful place to sit and stitch! :)

Your loggies are stunning. Can't wait to see what you do with them. Gorgeous!
