Dresdens and a new treasure…

I’m not sure where the summer holidays vanished to…they have disappeared really fast!Today is the first day of school for Miss Olivia and the boys and I are slowly easing ourselves back into our home schooling routine… We are familiarising ourselves with the work we have ahead of us and designing title pages and such(fun stuff) I have three teenagers home schooling and each one of them is doing something different this year… so if things get a little quiet around here you’ll know why!

Over the past week I have been working on the Dresden plate quilt and I have finished sewing all 12 of them so now I am all ready for the next step… And as I mentioned in my last post I have a new treasure…

Claire generously gave me this gorgeous mirror… and it’s just perfect here… I can see my hutch from the kitchen now and it makes the room feel much bigger…

Well my lunch break is over now, so I better go get my teacher hat back on…

I love those Dresdens, I can see resistance is futile. I managed to order myself a template, so will add these gorgeous dresdens to my list. Your mirror is darling, looks perfectly 'you'!
