WIP Wednesday

I feel like I am treading water at the moment. Not getting very much sleep with three sick children, the man of the house has been working away, rainy, cold weather, too much tv watching...wet washing sitting in the machine(I've washed the same load three that too many?? gosh it's going to be really clean) and every now and then, I sneak into my craft room and sew a couple of squares together...and then a couple more.

I started this quilt a while back. It was always going to be a labour of love. It's for Lulu's big girl bed and she's still in her cot so there's no pressure really.

I kind of lost interest in the fabrics a bit but now that I've stitched some strips together, I've fallen in love with it again. I can see it coming together now and that's all the motivation I need to get it finished. Wish me luck!

Hi Lea, I have loved seeing the wonderful patterns of your "vintage" sheet finds but now seeing them all together - WOW - they look amazing, what a lucky little girl (a wonderful new quilt AND a talented mummy)xx
