Found it!!

Well my motivation seemed to come back after I got off the computer...strange that!! Lol!! And no Tracee my marbles are all here not in the oatmeal!! (Although some days I wonder!!) So this afternoon I have been busy
this is how I would like to spend my day...........

but I have cut fabric ready to put together tomorrow night....

...I have wrangled with letters on this quilt top.....

..satin stitch is not my favourite now!!!.......did a bit of a dummy spit as I seem to be stretching the white fabric...actually I don't like this white fabric as it is still creased from washing and I have ironed it and ironed it..........ah well......

....here is the finished quilt top....now to sandwich and get organised to quilt....maybe not today..definitely  not today!!....

...a wee glimmer of hope in a parched garden...the flowering gum is getting it's flowers...it amazes me, everything else is suffering from the heat and it is looking amazing!! The flowering gum is that faint hint of red in the distance!! Lol!!

I have also made two quilt tops to go to Cheryll for her Blankets of Love project...now to find backing...and then the quilting. I suppose I should organise some dinner soon, DH will be getting hungry!!
Happy sewing!!

I'm with Tupai, I would SOOOO like to be spending my day like that. Your Collingwood quilt top turned out great, well done. Despite the heat you have been a busy girl! I have my Underground Railroad block cut out ready to go tonight too, and chosen fabrics for the second block, just in case I get a burst of energy and wanted to get started on that!
