Today was THE day. I was determined to piece more of my angel quilt. I resisted the temptation to soak up some vitamin D which I am very deficient in and ignored the rare beautiful sunny day outside.  My sewing room was warm and bright as I sewed and listened to a podcast. Now, I know I always refer to this quilt as "my angel quilt" when , infact, it is called " An Angels Story" by Anni Downs. I have had the book/pattern for years. So, here are 3 more blocks completed.

Well, you know how things sometimes go very right and you feel like you are getting somewhere? That was me this afternoon. I was so enthused that I nearly finished sewing the whole quilt together. Only one little bit left to sew there between 2 parts.

And then it happened! A surge of confidence lead to sewing that final bit and voila!

Not a great pic but you get the idea. Lol, ignore my munchkin's train in the background. I was balancing on the sofa trying to get an overhead shot.

This morning after doing the necessary household tasks like cleaning the shower and doing the washing , I sat and did some more crochet. My Dune lap blanket is about two thirds finished.

I have been eating too much of contraband food lately and subsequently had another gastritis attack a few days ago. Self inflicted. So, this morning I made myself a yummy slice with ingredients I can safely eat. I have made it several times and altered the original recipe to suit me. 

Thankyou for visiting. 

Angel Blessings.
