Let there be light!

Finally we have some springy weather!

I am just recovering from what has been a rather sicky weekend, first Ella was sick in her bed, and then for the rest of saturday night, then I came a cropper on sunday night, then Danny on monday, Yuck!
I missed the first day of blue skies and sun on monday as I was curled up in bed, but today I felt the strength to climb out from under the covers and get some washing on the line.

I've made some vegetable soup for dinner from some leftovers languishing in our very naked fridge, potted up a few primulas I bought last week, and got the camera out to take some photos.

new Rowan yarn in ice-cream colours from colourway- now I can finally make a start on a granny blanket.

last weeks bargain, which I found whilst wandering round a antiques centre with my mum and dad. A super soft 'comfy' quilt, a little worst for wear on the outer edges, and not normally my colours but for £9.75 I just couldn't leave it.

Now I have a dilemma.

Do I......

A) As my mum suggested, use it as a base for a new quilt.

B) Sew a band of fabric round the edges to cover over the damage.

C) Cut off the outer border, leaving the middle as a smaller quilt and bind the edges, and use any of the the undamaged bits of the border for smaller projects.

D) Any other ideas?

Ho Hum, Back to work tomorrow.
