Framed and hung......and bindings sewn........

I have just collected my Scarlet Letter "Log Cabin" from the framers, and I am so thrilled with the end result:  it is now hung among some of my other samplers and looks wonderful - though I say it myself!:  I am really pleased with the rustic frame I chose, it is perfectly in  keeping with a Log Cabin:

I have also been busy sewing bindings onto baby quilts and then getting them into the mail, or wrapped ready for the visiting recipient:
Here is 9 month old Emily admiring her gift along with mum Lucy and 4 year old Milly:

Here are some of the others also showing their backs:
I decided to try something totally different - and more grown-up! - so I delved into my fabric pile and came out with these gorgeous fabrics and have made this small throw with a "sampler" theme:
I just loved making this - and it always good to do something without any pressure.  This will be for a sampler loving friend when it is quilted and finished - and I hope she will be surprised - and delighted!

I am off up to Surrey for a long weekend to stay with my dear friend Lise and see friends - and my three wonderful children are driving out from London on Sunday for lunch - I am so excited - I feel the real need to see them and catch up with what is going on in their busy lives.  We are too far away for impromptu Sunday lunches so I will make the most of this one.

How I wish Spring would actually make an appearance:  I am so sick of this cold grey damp weather - I just long to feel some warmth in the sun and to be able to get out into the garden and enjoy the beautiful countryside that surrounds us here in Devon.

Meanwhile thank goodness for our wonderful hobbies - they keep me sane (I think!).
I hope everyone is keeping well and busy.  I do enjoy reading the many Blogs I follow - it is a good start to every day catching up with everyone's progress on their various projects - lots of inspiration and encouragement!
Have a good week.........
