Lady of Leisure?

I don't know about that - I've had one day at home this week and the diary for next week is looking just as busy.

In amongst the socialising, I've done some sewing - finished off the cot quilt tops I started a couple of weeks ago.

Teddy Bears
Backing

 Cut out some more quilt tops and finished two of those (no quilting yet).

Double Hourglass with sashings
Ric-rac and Spots
Made up sample blocks of a couple of the cut-out quilt tops


   
Love this block - the blue spot is flannel and is so soft and cuddly
Next week, in amongst more socialising and appointments, will be quilting week.  First up with be more quilting on Butterfly Garden - I'd love to have that quilt finished off this year.

And the big news at our place this week?


Both of the climbing roses on our front trellis have rosebuds.  We are so excited.  Neither of us are gardeners.  I hope that when the buds open no-one steals the flowers.  A large branch was broken off our frangipanni tree last summer when the flowers bloomed - the poor tree is now very lopsided.
