Bright and Cheerful.

I've titled this post "Bright and Cheeful"  but infact I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself today as I've come down with a cold. You know the type of thing I mean, runny nose, blocked sinus's, sore throat. I've got no new sewing to show you as I've still not yet completed by dining room quilt. I'm making a pieced binding which is nearly done, so if I can summon up the energy I plan to finish it today and I can then sit down and hand sew the back of it on while watching Wimbledon which starts today. I'm hoping for a British win this year by Andy Murray.
So, to cheer myself up I'll show some pictures of some of my hand made stuff (which I've shown before) in bright, cheerful, stop feeling sorry for yourself colours.

This one is a Kaffe Fassett inspired quilt which still isn't finished.



Values quilt made from my many scraps.



I made this bag for myself last year from AmyButler fabrics and I'm pleased to say it's been well used.



Oh dear, another one that's not finished, this one's for Project Linus.



I hope all these bright colours have helped you have a bright and cheerful day.

Bye for now, Maria

Ooo I love bright colours! The top pic is gorgeous. I love turquoise with hot pink like the bit on the right.

Due to teckie problems I have had to change my blog- link from the old one.

Sorry you're feeling a bit off colour Maria; mind you, if your weather is anything like ours I'm not surprised, here it's really grey, heavy and muggy, yuk. I love your values quilt, it really works.
