Sunday morning

Battening down the hatches today. Coffee, flapjack, a coal fire....

I made a long cushion for my pew, using some fabric I bought at Peterborough Antiques Fair, and an old nylon eiderdown for padding. Total cost = £7.50. The fabric is an old curtain, much-washed linen, sun faded and tumbled.

I've started a new project. I'm making a full sized patchwork for our bed. I have no idea if I'll be able to do this, but at least the bit with the squares is straightforward, and I'm having great fun choosing my fabrics. I'm going for a palette of reds and florals, I want it to be bright and cheerful. 

In the meantime, I'm enjoying the pretty old Durham quilt I found at the fair on Friday.

Definitely having a colourful moment...

Stay warm, everyone.
