I followed JP's recipe for Homity Pie for supper this evening and very nice it was too - so thank you JP.  My husband who is a meat eater and it really takes something for him not to have meat, actually enjoyed this pie and said it had flavour - so that is praise indeed coming from him.

For months upon months I have been struggling to find something I want to make for supper, I go to the fridge and see just the same old foods everytime (He does the shopping and just keeps on repeating the same everytime) so it has been a nice surprise for me to make something so different and for him to actually want to have some as well.  We had to go back for seconds.

Another doll's sweater is done. This one took a bit of time to get the gauge correct but the time spent was worth it.

Trying to finish another doll's sweater and I finally got past row 3. Hopefully it will be done this week as I have another one to make before the end of the month.

Twopence the Schmetz double eye machine needle is available via Amazon UK a pack of five for £2.99 and free postage.
There is also an offer for £4.99 buy 2 get 1 free plus a free needle threader and postage.

Whilst Threads is an American magazine they were saying that these needles could be obtained from Schmetz or Bernina - so that would be Bernina USA.  So just maybe they are available over here from Bernina UK?

I plan on making large quilt from Splendid Sampler blocks. Most will be from Splendid Sampler 2 but there are a few that will be from Splendid Sampler 1 if I choose to swap some out. There will be approximately 100 blocks in total

The entire quilt will be in Batiks and one unifying White-on-White fabric. My rough plan is to make each block in only shades of one colour and white and then make a colour graduated quilt.

I've made 42 blocks so far and have posted a picture of them very roughly laid out. I will post each block I make from now on on here so I can keep track of progress.  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
