Wise words

My adored grandmother used to always say start out the way you intend to go on ......
Well since Tuesday's turn of events I have been getting up each morning and getting myself ready as if I am going to work.  I have to drive Amy to the bus at 7am anyway so I figure I might as well be dressed and ready for the day.  I don't want to get into bad habits so I'm trying my best to stay motivated.
I'm also making an effort to economise and  be frugal in the kitchen.  I hope it lasts but today I whipped up a batch of meatballs in the slow cooker for dinner - They were delicious and a firm family favourite.  I'll share the recipe and steps next week.
I had a bit of a lazy day but did manage to delve into the scrap bin for this new project I am doing.  I am a member of "The Fussy Cutters Club" on Facebook and we are doing a stitch-a-long to make Judy Newman's Dilly Bag towards the end of the month so I decided to get a head start. 
I am certainly going to be diving into that scrap basket a fair bit into the future I think.
I have been plodding along with my Lucy Boston Blocks.  This is such a lovely project and so easy to do.  I am finally getting to use up some of my treasured shabby fabrics.
And some of my leftovers.  I look at this block and the centre fabric which I have used in other projects instantly reminds me of them.
Here are all 7 of my blocks together.  I think I will do 36 for a 6 Block X 6 Block Quilt.
If you want to try your hand at Lucy Boston Blocks I have the papers over in my STORE.  They are super easy to do.
Well I had best be off I plan to get into the garden today and plant some seedlings.
Have a great Friday and an even better weekend.
Hugs - Fee x

Luv your Lucy Boston blocks...very feminine! Have you found Slow Cooker for Families page on Facebook....lots of yummy Receipes, and I am impressed with the young ones trying & sharing Receipes. I also found retrenchment difficult after 21 years in my job, after 18 restless months I've been in a temp job for 3 years working 3 days per week. Take care xx

Stuck in bed today with an MS relapse unfortunately, but taking the opportunity to catch up on some of the blogs I follow. Those blocks are soooooo beautiful - just so soft and feminine. Your work so inspires and uplifts me. Can't wait to see your final project with them. Have a wonderful week full of creating and inspiration.

I LOVE your Lucy Boston blocks. I've been so-so about this design, but your colors are wonderful. My grandmother used to say almost the same thing, begin as you mean to go on. And we're a world apart! I guess wisdom is wisdom, eh?
