When I woke up today I felt content, some days I wake up feeling anxious, I've no idea why so I just put up with it and I'm happy that some days have a good start. So, enough rambling!!!! Due to the successful completion of the quilt yesterday, I decided to start another one. The checked fabric in the picture is one of those bargains I just can't resist. It's a bit of a weird colour and it's flannel, as soon as I brought it home I washed it and it didn't shrink much at all. I had a good rummage through my newly organized fabric stash and came up with enough coordinating pieces and a good backing piece. The brown fabric in the picture isn't a true depiction of the colour, it's not so reddish looking in real life. I've got to wash the two smaller pieces, give everything a good press and decide what patchwork pattern to use, the choosing usually takes the longest. But before all of this I want to make cupcakes, we used to call these fairy cakes but apparently we don't anymore - I wonder why?
