I so love it when the winter evenings draw in and I get to spend more time with my sewing machine. No one expects me to go out in the cold and do some gardening or go for a walk!
Last night I rustled up a cot quilt for a new baby boy. I did it in the quickest fashion I know ... a quilt as you go ... it turned out rather well.

I do not like traditional pinks and blues and lemons for babies so choose something less childish - I think the reds and browns with a touch of petrol blue worked rather well and the cream background made the colours more muted. All the fabrics came from the Sevenberry range. I also had the pleasure of hand sewing the binding to the back while watching a taped episode of The Killing - very scary indeed!
And yes ... it really is 6am on Tuesday morning ... we get up really early in my house as everyone leaves between 7am and 8am. Now to make some morning tea ...
