I'm getting thoroughly sick of sickness. Miss Rosey is still off school, my body caved in to the fluey thing on Monday night and now my Mr is suffering too. Little Bun is the only one back out there as a well girlie. I stumbled throuh a days work on Tuesday and was pretty useless so I took yesterday and today off. I thought a day on the sofa doing nothing would be the perfect get well tonic. Instead the electricity left our house so I had to spend half the day trying to get it back again. Today I'm floppier than before and can't even get inspired to knit or crochet which is most odd for me. I do have a windmill quilt which I'm getting itchy to get back to mind you.
On Monday I had a fiddle around with some of the triangle squares I'd made up. Before I absolutely decided on the pattern I was going for I fancied trying out a few options.
After trying out three different patterns it was still the windmills that stood out the most to me. They combine the other two patterns, but in a more mixed up hotchpotch way.
I've stitched up more than half of the 56 blocks I'll need. Without the new way of making up triangles there's no way I'd be whizzing through this so quickly.
I pictured a fresh spring floral quilt and the fabrics I've chosen perfectly capture what I have in my head.
These two are standing out as my favourites so far. I have a feeling that I'm going to really enjoy looking at this one when it's done.
As you've all told me, you can never have too many quilts. This past week I've found out we need quite a stack in readiness for ill days. That cosy splash of colour is just right for cuddling a poorly one.
