A mad idea!

First of all go and visit Terrie's blog she's having a fantastic and generous giveaway, which of course I would love to win.

I've finally managed to finish February by LHN, it's taken me what seems like forever to finish, but it's now all done and is looking good if I do say so myself. I've also made good progress on March, I just love the little sheep it's so cute.

I've been busying buying some more stash. I bought CCN Part 1 of the "Summer Seascape" series and Blue Ribbon Designs "Schoolgirl Samplings", I'm still waiting for the fabric to arrive for this though. What do people think, do I just do the sampler or do I make the whole box and smalls? (Sorry about the picture quality)
I've also joined my first BOTM from Leanne's House "Down in the Garden". You can see picture's of it on the side bar. I'm sure you'll agree that the fabrics and threads for the first block are lovely, but there's a problem - I've never actually made a quilt before, (and that's the mad idea) I'm sure that I will eventually figure it out or if anyone has any helpful suggestions it would be greatly appreciated, but don't hold your breath for regular updates.
Well I think that's all for now, I need to go and feed the boys their tea. Take care of yourselves and I'll see you all soon.


  1. Hi Melanie, Just found my way to your blog from comment left on Terrie's giveaway. Your stitching is lovely, so is your blog. Good luck for Leanne's BOM - isn't is beautiful.. I'm halfway through her first one, Leanne's House, and have all the supplies ready for Butterfly Garden. She is one my favourite designers. Hope your weekend is going great.

  2. Melanie, thanks for the link to Terrie's fabulous giveaway!

    Love your fabric and thread colors and you made me laugh when you admitted to never quilting before. I love that you are willing to jump in and try something new. Quilting is on my list, once I finish school.

    I vote for stitching the box and all the pretty little pieces that go along with it. This is such a lovely chart.

    Enjoy your day.

  3. Good luck with your quilting-looking forward to hearing about it :)
