10. Made a queen size quilt. Check!

Mums quilt. She decided, as she does, that she'd like to make a quilt while she was up. From my stash, you know, to help me out (really help Hubby out by taking some of the stash lol)

Fabric - Nicey jane by Heather Bailey and some Blue Wrens in ink by Ink and Spindle, kindle donated by Kirsty :)

Mum just loves all the ink and spindle prints but given that she is a get in and get it done kinda lady (I know! Not like me at all) there was no chance of her waiting for yardage. I was a little unsure of the combination, I like things to match, but I think it's perfect! And it looks great on her bed :)

Pattern is from material obsessions book 1, with a few wee changes including adding at extra row. Very easy to assemble and lightly quilted with straight lines.

So. Anything you want to fill me in on? Any news or, you know, plain old life you want to share? xox

hope you are treating yourself to a few treats my love. I'm sorry I didn't know you were on new meds but hope you are happy and on top of it all. Its so hard when hubbies aren't here and you really have the long term absences and I don't know how you do it. I find 2 nights hard work let alone months. glad your family were there for you
