It was perfect timing when I hooked the final border stitch on my Dune blanket 2 nights ago. Last night found me snuggled under this soft warm blanket clutching a hot water bottle with my legs up on the sofa watching Bloom, a fantastic Aussie TV series. Oh my, was it cold! Once again, our heater was struggling to reach 23 degrees and I don't think it did at all . It is supposedly the last month of winter but I think real winter has just arrived. 

I have been steadily piecing my quilt together and have come to the point where I need to sew that lost or forgotten stitchery . I have started that particular stitchery on a different background as I never did find any remnants of the original one I used but I think it will blend in nicely. Here is a pic of A Gardener's Journal so far.

I have finished a lovely book written by the same author who wrote The German Girl which I also loved.

The continual downpour of rain has ceased and I can see a teensy bit of sunshine out of  my window as I type but it seems to be slowly fading .

Angel Blessings.
