I have a new neighbour.

I was up before the lark today! I woke at 03.30 all hot and bothered and I couldn't get back to sleep, even after I had sat up to throw off the covers and cool off. I gave up and got up at 04.30. So I've had a very long and productive day. I stitched and attached the label for the 'Penny Lemonade' quilt I finished recently. I'll be prepping a few more labels this evening. I think I'll get a sense of achievement if I crack on a do a few more at least.

I spent the bulk of the day sat at my sewing table and got loads done, so a real sense of achievement there too. I tied off the threads for the leaves on my French Roses, then completed the first round of petals. I have the second round of petals sewn on, I just need to tie off the threads and cut the backs out.
They are raw edge applique and have two more petal layers to go before I sew the blocks together.
While I was sat at my table in the window I glanced up when I heard a birdie commotion outside. Across the street a gull was defending this youngster from a big crow. It would seem that i have a new neighbour.
There was a gull chick on my roof last year, but this year we seem to have escaped, that was awful, they are very noisy, but are not considered to be a pest so we couldn't do anything about it.

I'm off to sew, take care.

These early mornings are a killer, but you certainly can get lot done.

You've made good use of your early start. The quilt is coming up well. Please show a close up of your raw edge applique, I haven't been game to try as yet.

Is this a commercial pattern, and if so, where did you get it from?
