Daybook entry #11
Outside my window ... not today exactly, but recently, the first blossoms of our new crabapple, Malus 'Mattom' (Tom Matthews).
I am thankful for ...
the many positive comments about
. Your encouragement keeps me motivated! Yes, it is my own pattern which I am writing up at the moment. Can't wait to see what Belinda does with the quilting. Itching to get this quilt bound and finished :)
From the kitchen ...
I am eating leftover
with my morning coffee. Ooooh yeah!
I am stitching ...
repairs to Miss 16's Year 10 formal dress. It is brand new, unworn, and needs fixing - hate that! Whether detachable straps of said dress will be worn on the big night is a matter still under negotiation!
I am reading ... '

I am hoping ...
to spend some time reading '
' which arrived today. I have no intentions of designing fabric, I just love to learn :)
I am listening to ...
the new Coldplay album, Mylo Xyloto
. Youtube link enthusiastically provided by Miss 16 who is studying graffiti art at school right now, and thinks this is very cool.
I am learning ...
from Miss 16. Banksy is a controversial and anonymous British street artist whose works split the world into those who think his work is 'art' and those who dismiss it as graffiti.
