weather

I don't care what the weather man says . It's raining at present , I don't care .
I have a new patchwork book to read.  It is my third Kathy Doughty book and I think it is the best yet .
I would say when the weather is dismal  read a book of modern quilts .
Kathy's books are full of colour and surprises .
I know I still have strips to put together for the blue strip quilt I;m currently doing but I intend to crack on and start something from my new book .
If you like Kaffe Fassett you will also favour Kathy Doughty designs.
 
As I sat in the conservatory having coffee it was great to see the blackbirds being territorial .
 
 
Yesterday I did spring cleaning in my bedroom so I have no guilty conscience about sewing today .
One more coffee before I start .

That book would appeal to me to. Lovely bright colours. Sure to bring some sunshine into your life, no wonder your not bothered about the rain. I dare not buy any more books though, it will just be something else to pack and carry on our move back to Crete.

This is the second day we have had sunshine, mind you, temp is still on the minus side of zero C. but it makes one feel a lot better.
If the quilts on the cover are an indication of what's inside, looks like great reading and sewing.
Enjoy

It looks like a lovely book. Our weather is breaking a little and it's possible to imagine Spring just around the corner.

Warm Regards, barb
