On My Mind

is tackling some of the UFO basket...
found these 2 orphan blocks...
now they are 
a cushion!

I've got another two blocks like the top one and another one like the bottom one, 
so I think that I've do another needleturn applique to match and 
hey presto three new cushions!

(still feeling a bit C#@P, cos now I've got a sinus headache to help with the rest of the cold bit)
thanks for sharing DH and Diva! not....

finished quilting this cute little cot quilt on the weekend...
just simple straight lines in the white sections and a zigzag effect in the coloured ones.

out and about today

this little fellow was out and about in my garden today...
haven't seen any around for a couple of years, 
so this was lovely watching him!

can't wait for some of these to start popping open in Spring, 
the green shoots are just starting to appear around the garden...

now this one above...I was at a twilight market in 2009, 
and the lady wearing this gorgeous creation wandered past my stall, 
I quickly grabbed the camera and snapped....
it was quite hilarious!

and you get hat hair! not happening!
