One corner of my sewing room . . .
Some bags and a few Pies and Tarts
mix in a little bit of selvedge and some Sewjourn

some scraps . . .
a quilt with the colour taken out for a different view
one excited cousin with her new "sheep" PJ's
I didn't even know she liked sheep, so that was a BONUS - I did know she liked purple and red
some Amy quilting
Yes, I've been doing a little bit of sewing lately

Only 6 days left

With only 6 days left of this, my favourite season, I'm just sneaking in one more post of my beautiful colour.
This is my Medlar Tree that is stunning!
The silver birch are all but finished with their display, and the ornamental pear is turning a lovely shade of red.
It was seriously SO cold today, I thought at one stage that the rain was going to turn into snow!

I've been doing lots and lots of sewing due to the cold snap, so I'll be showing you some of that next post.
