Barnyard Plaids

Telkom!! GRRRrrrrrrr
After telephone calls to Telkom on Saturday, I still could not get Internet, I don't know if it was the heavy rain or what. In frustration, I switched the computer off. I hope all Moms had a fabulous Mothers Day. 
I wonder if winter has arrived early. We've had a freezing cold spell. I had to get out my winter slippers and jerseys.
I have bought another one of Beth Broodryk's patterns. I love her miniature designs.They are all  paper foundation piecing. I also bought a pack of plaids.

                                 blocks completed

I used fabric from my stash for the borders. Ready for quilting.

Have you seen Kaaren's new BOM, Happy Scrappy Spring?  It's a six month row along and ends 6th September, just in time for Spring here.......I'm so tempted, I love scrap busting projects.
Sadly, my father in law passed away peacefully on the 30th April. He was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather and we miss him already. R.I.P.  John Alfred Wright Ellis   10 September 1923  -  30 April 2013


  1. Sorry to hear about the loss of your father-in-law. Your family will be in my prayers. I like the plaid blocks :)

  2. Your quilt looks really great, a wonderful man's quilt. Thank you for sharing. I am sorry to hear of the passing of your father-in-law. My deepest sympathies to all.

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day.
