Planning Ahead.

I finished them. I looked for buttons to pop onto the corner stones in the local shop, but saw nothing that would work, so the quilting in the ditch will suffice. To be honest, looking at it today I feel that it doesn't need them anyway, the red corner stones are only 1 inch square and I would lose them behind buttons.Here you see it blue tacked to the door, this is not it's final resting place, once I get a real hanger it will go on the stairs. Have a close up look at those yummy little cherries. Those threads are from the quilting, they are all gone now.*
I have a day off work today, great huh? Only just back to work after 5 days of annual leave and I have a day off already, I told you I was easing back gently! I plan to read through my homework for my course and print it off ready for my monthly trip to Warrington tomorrow, then my time is my own.

I think I'll print out any outstanding BOM pages and prep those for printing, I also plan to find something to stitch for two of my nieces. One has her bedroom decorated with Kokeshi doll fabrics and wall paper, the other is mad about pink. Hmm, maybe I can use one of the On My Heart blocks. They would lend themselves very nicely to being Pinked! I also have Pat Sloans China Delight all prepped and ready to stitch for their mum.

Lovely little hanging and the butterflies remind me of our Monarch butterflies that we have during the summer months.

What a sweet summery quilt to enjoy for months and years to come. I don't think anyone could ever get tired of looking at it. Great job, Loulee!
