Blue days


do you ever have one of those days when you wake up and and off you go ... worrying. i should really call it a 'worry' day. if i can find something to worry about, i do!

i woke up this morning early and just lay there, and started thinking about things, you know, family, friends etc. trouble is once you start you just can't stop! anyway i won't bore you all with the details but i thought i know what will help - just go onto the blogoverse and be inspired by others!

Have been sooo inspired by everyone's little hats for the innocent smoothies that i have decided to get on a make some - will post some pics when i have done a few!


at the weekend i finally got some time to do more with my quilt - have 'only' got the hand quilting to do now!!





and this is the back
have not decided how to quilt it yet!

However - have got some new fabric for the next one! its lovely soft cotton flannel - just right for the winter


can't wait to start it - may just do simple squares - need to do something easy to make sure i finish it before the end of winter -any suggestions for patterns gratefully received!
i also feel the need to start knitting scarves!! huge scarves are all the rage apparently, in the fashion mags - i know, i'm such a hip person!!! this then gives me the perfect excuse for searching out new yarn - as if i need an excuse! (would love to do a scarf swap but feel i'm still a new kid (ha ha) on the block, and everyone i think has loads enough to do at the mo!)
well thanks for being there and apologies for the whinging but sometimes it helps to get it off your chest and into perspective.

Cack day? Perhaps I can offer you a mid 2001 model to cheer you up? All that playing lego will take your mind off things!

Hi, i love your blog, i am a new reader but have a little list that notifies me when you have posted!

I know exactly what you mean about waking up and worrying! It is very strange, as usually I have nothing to worry about!

Well, i hope that your crafting has helped, and you have created lots of worry free little hats!

Happy Blogging! x

Some days are just like that aren't they?! I hope the bloggoverse and you rbeautiful quilt helped to cheer you up.

Good luck with the hand-quilting. I'm still plodding away at hand-quilting my first quilt and the binding seems so very far away!!

Maybe I should get off the computer and do a bit more now!!

I'm knitting scarves! Does that mean I'm all the rage? If so, it's the first time in my entire life!

Hope you're feeling a little less blue now (((WW))) ... I find waking at 3am is horribly conducive to *those* thoughts. And you're right - once you start, you can't stop.

Your quilt is lovely - the next one will look fab in squares - such lovely fabric.
