Hello my lovelies. Have you had a fab day? It’s been a pretty good day in my little world. My Sarah and I started the day off with a hair appointment. I just had my regular trim to tidy away all the dead ends but Sarah had loads cut off the length …..

Sarah haircut

Sarah’s hair was almost down to her waist and decided she needed a bit of a change. So, her hair is only down to her collar bone now.

We went on to run a few errands in town and upon arriving home and after having a cuppa and a snack I disappeared into my sewing room again. I pieced a few simple four patch blocks amongst other things …..


I like to be sure to press my seams in a way that reduces the bulk. So, I did the old propeller trick …..


We took Maisie to the vet for her six-month check up yesterday. I always worry about taking her for her check ups now that she has a heart murmur. I hold my breath when the vet listens to her heart. Once again, the verdict is that her murmur isn’t any worse. Thank goodness for that 😉.


Well it’s been a great day here at happy stitching manor. The sun was shining affecting my whole outlook on life. It seems I always get more done on a sunny day than a dark one. After spending a few hours in my sewing room, I cooked a bit of comfort food for our evening meal. Tonight, it’s chilli bean sausage casserole. It’s not very exotic but it will keep us going for a bit.

This evening I hope to make progress on another Patchwork of the Crosses block. I’ve only got two more blocks to go to finish the centre section of my quilt top. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you love doing.

Until next time,

Let’s all keep stitching
