The Hot Spot quilt is finished and I am very happy with the result.  I'll be taking a rest from projects for a while but the next one will definitely be for me.

Our Creative Space

Over at STLT we are on a deadline.  Youngest sister's quilt needs to be finished before we head off on an adventure so the sewing machine has been in use every night this week.  The quilting is finished and I'm now pressing the binding ready to pin it on.  I was a bit nervous about my choice of thread - the author of the book that the pattern came from (Hot Spot quilt from Modern Minimal by Alissa Haight Carlton) said that she matched her thread to each section of the quilt, however as I had made a reversible quilt, this was never going to work.   The reverse side can be seen in the Sunday Snippets post below. So I took a deep breath and decided on chocolate brown, possibly influenced by what I had on hand.  Anyway, I am happy with the result, which I think adds a bit more interest to the piece.  I just hope that R agrees.

Sunday Snippets

Another week in a few pics - my theme this week seems to be brown and gold.  Unintentionally in sync with the time of year.

For more Sunday Snippets, pay Tinnie Girl a visit.

Bright spot

A very cute cardi spotted in a shop along one of our dog walking routes.  Taking a photo while keeping 2 x 24kg dogs under control is very challenging but I just had to snap this beauty.  Doesn't it look nice and toasty warm?
