I started this patchwork back in November, straight after my sister finished hers so I was filled with inspiration. I’ve worked on it pretty casually so 6 months isn’t that bad going! I’m now coming to the end of the actual patchwork; 324 patches in total – 315 down, 9 to go. All that’s left to do is to fill it with wadding and sew on the backing fabric. I hope it’s as fantastic as my sister’s quilt.
Another Monday morning, another lovely weekend been and gone. I was feeling a little under the weather so after the flat viewings on Saturday we slummed out in the flat for the rest of the weekend! A combination of TV, comfies, boyfriend hoodie, hot chocolate, bacon sandwiches, scones, patchwork and delicious roast chicken.
You couldn’t ask for more from a Saturday morning. We’ve got a day of flat viewings today so we’re up early and the sun shining fills us with optimism. The herbs I planted a couple of weekends back (Chervil, Mint and Parsley) are also doing really well. We’ve been using them to cook ever since, it makes such a difference having fresh herbs to hand.
I’m a little unadventurous when it comes to choosing cut flowers for my flat so it was a lovely surprise to receive a bunch that I’d never have chosen for myself, in a colour i’d never have picked! It goes to show that it’s good to try something new, the bright pink Gerberas add a vibrant splash of colour to my otherwise neutral flat.
