It's been a while..........

I finally hunted out my sewing machine and did a bit of sewing on Wednesday.
Dd good friend is expecting a baby girl in April, and as I made her a baby quilt for her baby boy when he was born, I knew I had better get going with one for the new baby to be.

I bought this Riley Blake Little Red Riding Hood  quilt kit a while back and had never used it.  
It is such a cute selection of fabrics and perfect for a little girl.

The only snag though is the kit didn't come with a pattern, so I had to make my own up.  I will share more photos in the next couple of days.

Health wise, onwards and upwards as they say.  I did pop my head out of the door to go to the mail box, but honestly it was so flipping cold, I did not want to stay outside for anymore time than I had too.

Good Morning! I'm looking forward to seeing what your pattern is. I haven't quilted in ages myself. So many unfinished projects too! lol
Hope you are feeling better today, but do be careful and keep warm {not easy in that weather, I know}

Quite a pretty pattern. About the only thing I can sew is the odd button.

That looks gorgeous Gill. She'll love it.
Hope you feel better & your weather warms up a bit soon. Nothing like a bit of sunshine to perk you up is there.

Love the fabric, perfect for a little girl. I have had a technician and his manger here all afternoon. I now have a working phone. But the fight is not over yet. Need to get some compensation for all of the days I have been without the Plus hope to get some reimbursement for the additional card I had to purchase for my cell due to all of the calls to Bell.

Gill, I look forward to seeing the finished quilt. We have had +12 - +17C weather here and no snow. I'm loving this however I am a bit concerned we may pay for it later. Stay warm and get better soon.
