Is This Progress?..........I Hope So!

Last Saturday was like an Indian Summer.  It was a glorious sunny day  - the sort of day that makes you feel good and puts a smile on the faces of people as you meet them.  Saturday Singing group started up again after the summer break and we practised a few pieces to perform at a charity event in a couple of weeks.

 It was also the weekend of Abergavenny Food Festival and although it's only 10 miles down the road, I've never been to it!  DH cooked there one year for the restaurant he was working in at the time, but this year he went as a visitor.  He came home with  chorizo sausages, black pudding and a pig's cheek! I took a photo but forgot to load it, and this new system won't let me load more once done, but believe me, it's not a pretty sight.  I don't know what I expected but it LOOKS like a pig's cheek!!!! And it's in my fridge!!!!!  Luckily, he's going to ?treat? my OH and is cooking it tonight!  Remind me why I became veggie!
 This pile is the progess I mention in the title.  It's not pretty but it's something. 
 The 'progress' in question involved pressing 176 HST's...........

.............and laying them out on the kitchen table, which actually took quite a while when trying not to put the same fabrics too close to eachother.  The next question should be - How long before we get to eat at the table because they're not moving until I can sew them together?!!  In other words - When will I get my next 'time for stitching'?

Bye for now

Wow... that's a lot of sewing you've got to look forward too. It'll be gorgeous when it's done. With the children (teenagers ) around I tend to photograph layouts now 'cos my daughter just cannot resist pointing out/moving blocks to something she prefers. Sometimes she's right but other times....

Oh, look at all those quilt pieces! I laughed about the kitchen table. Good for you!

What a beautiful day. Love the light in the first picture with all the plants and the view out. Just lovely.

Hi Girlie,
Thanks for stopping by. I so agree with you about the two quilts. I too love 'orange' but the pink and lavender takes the cake on this one. The original was done in pink and black.
I love this quilt you are working on. It makes me want to do some half square triangles from my stash!!

Wow, the quilt looks amazing. I think cutting is the worst part. You're well on your way now. A x

Wow! 176!! that's a lot!! the question is: have you eaten at the table or not yet? ;) (if it were my case, it would take me a long time to finish it)
