A new hobby!

Let me tell you, a broken metatarsal is very bad for the bank balance!  During my enforced sofa time I've spent far too long surfing the web, and have discovered many gorgeous things, including Oh, Fransson! which inspired me to make a quilt!  I found a free Amy Butler pattern for the Mid Mod Quilt, order a fortune's worth of fabric ... and here is the finished article!  This is for Natasha's orange room (I also whipped up the curtains which need more hooks to get them hanging right!), and she LOVES it!  Don't look to closely - the corners (cleverly hidden in the photos :)) need some serious work, and there is a bit of puckering, but I am really pleased with it and well almost certainly make another! (My mum has put in her order for Mother's Day!)

This is gorgeous, Suzie - so much work in that quilt - I'm not surprised Natasha's pleased with it. Hope you're resting that foot still today x
