Good morning

A really sunny start to our day here in Manchester.
I was very surprised though when I went out to the dust bin in the snow yesterday, despite a temperature of just 1 degree....I have two little yellow crocus half open,! how brave is that? lol..... shows spring is just around the corner........

I am showing you my first quilt for the LilyBo appeal today. you can read about it here.

They are being made with love for babies and children who are going through cancer  treatment, They are soft and cuddly to give comfort during the illness, we are asked to make a little bag as well so they can be transported between hospital and home.

My car is off the road this week, so another quilt for a little girl is already half made, these will hopefully be in the post by weekend.

I need to make  a card later for a special friend who has a birthday this weekend, so I had better move and get a shower.

I hope you are all well and busy, thanks for popping by.

Hugs Tilly x

This is gorgeous Tilly, and so like you to generously make something for such a worthy cause.
I wish I could sew! I can just about manage to sew on a button and I used to do cross stitch but anything else and I'm useless!

Big hugs
Nice to see you back in action too!
Love Elaine xx
