Natalie's quilt

A couple of weekends ago I decided this quilt had been dragging on and I was in danger of loosing interest.  That thought spurred me on to get more blocks done and I am feeling pleased with my progress.  I now have only one more large basket block to make and then six mini baskets before I can start piecing it together ... it suddenly feels achievable!  The first photo shows the latest blocks I made and then all the blocks together.

After today another month is finished!  Here are some of the happenings for October:
From three chooks to two, our girls are getting old and not laying
Josh's team won their 5 aside soccer tournament
Getting a window seat installed
After a lazy winter I'm walking again, 40 minutes to get around our local lake
Our Charlie had a birthday
Colours of my latest knitting project
Apple and pear blossoms, hopefully we will have our first fruit this year
And progress made!

Thanks as always for your visit, happy weekend to you! Wendy xx
