spring quilting

After a morning of serious spring cleaning
I have come to the decision that when my husband works from home
the house gets tidied
and now that he's popped out
I'm back to my quilty ways.
And whilst I'm cleaning I'm thinking of blogging.
So why is it when I do get to blog, my mind goes blank?
I'm nearly done with this little project
and as always I'm unsure.
I don't seem to be able to make pretty,
I seriously don't set out to make 
the type of quilts I make...they just evolve.
I guess we all have our ways...when I'm creatively blocked
I fall back on my quilting default
 english paper piecing + diamonds + startling colour combinations
So what's your comfort quilting style?
A damp duster is my new best friend (truly)
especially when cleaning seven years of dust
from wooden venetian blinds.

Liberty fabric frames

Here in the UK it's Mothers day this Sunday.
I usually make cards for both our Mums,
but this year I've gone a bit different.
Liberty fabric scraps are the best 
for decoupage!
I'm the one in the pushchair and my Husband is the one in red.
I hope they like them as much as I do.
I think covering frames could be quite addictive.
How big am I in that push chair?
Too big because I can remember it...
with much affection.
