I don't know what its like where you are but here its muggy - just makes me want to fall asleep but have not succombed, yet!!

This week i've been trying to finish some of the things i started last year and this is one of them - its a quilt for Em which i started last October - as its her birthday in September i have decided i have to finish it by then!!

I'm fairly happy with it, have just got to add a further border this afternoon - shocking pink, and then put it together and quilt it!!

Had a lovely time at Trash's in the week - i've always wanted to try some form of painting, i was rubbish at school - so Trash took me under her wing and i did this-

I was so pleased with it, i know its nowhere near perfect but it was brilliant to do! Thanks for being such a great (and very patient!) tutor Trashy!!!!
I know the last time i made one of these i said i would not do another one - but a friend asked me for one, so here it is

I hope she's happy with it!!

Now then, to nap or not?!!! Maybe just a short one and then some crochet (trying to finish my granny square blanket)!
