Hello my lovelies. I hope you’re all enjoying the month of May so far. It’s been pretty good in my little corner of the northeast of England. It seems the weather has taken a downturn for the moment. It’s brrrr cold. It’s a bank holiday weekend and quite often we have rain on these holiday weekends. So not much change there. I have a great weekend planned full of chores and fun things to do. So, watch this space.

I have been doing a little bit of designing and block piecing of late. I finished piecing the project and spent part of the morning adding a border …..


And here’s a little sneaky peek at two bits of my quilt top …..



I might reveal a little more once the quilting is done.

Now while I was piecing and attaching the border to my latest project, I saw some movement outside my window. It took me a little while to work out what said movement was. There was a wee robin flying around my back garden gathering twiggy bits. I suspect that the wee robin is building a nest somewhere nearby. And of course, the wee robin was moving far too quickly for me to snap a photo. However the wee robin kept flying into my little teapot ornament to have a rest …..


I don’t think the robin is building a nest in my teapot because the opening is far to large but it was nice to see it standing/sitting in the teapot resting now and again. We always had a resident robin in years gone by but I haven’t seen it in a while. I hope the wee robin visits me again and often. I’ll be sure to top up the feeders and bird bath regularly just to encourage such birdy visits.

So, I guess that’s my report for this week. I hope you’ve all had a productive week. As I mentioned earlier, it’s a bank holiday weekend here in the UK. I there’s nothing like a long weekend to get a few seasonal jobs done. I was kind of hoping to plant my annual bedding plants this weekend but the weatherman is forecasting frost at night so I’ll leave it for a few more days. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly enjoy doing. I plan on doing some hexie work while watching a new episode of The Bletchley Circle. I do enjoy a good murder mystery. Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching.

  1. Good day Lucie,
    Thanks for sharing. Our Robin is a very much larger bird, as you know. Yours are so lovely. I can just see his tail ! Your sewing looks super so keep going.
    Have a great long week end, hope it gets warmer. It is pouring rain and freezing here. sigh…..
    some little bulbs are blooming but, it is hard going I fear LOL.
    Have a super day.
    Hugs to Maisie and family xxxxx


    1. Hi Joanna, I think the Canadian Robin is a bit more robust to be able to survive those harsh Canadian winters. I have been enjoying my sewing this past week. The progress is amazing and what a sense of accomplishment it has given me. Now I’m looking forward to the quilting part. Thanks for popping in today x


  2. The new quilt is looking good so far & sounds like a stitchy weekend is in order to keep cosy & warm. Small birds are very flitty, but I captured one of our little wrens & posted the photo on my last post for April if you want a peek. We’ve rain this morning too & it is definitely cooling here with leaves falling & littering the ground. Enjoy your weekend & take care.


    1. Hi Susan, it sounds like our weather, yours and mine, are pretty equal at the moment. It’s another dull and wet morning here. We’ll just have to make the best of a bad situation this bank holiday weekend. Thanks for popping in today xx


  3. Hi Lucie! Oh that butterfly – that looks so cool. I love the stitching you did on it. And you also gave a sneaky peek at part of your Dresden as well. Nice work – it looks great. ~smile~ Roseanne


    1. Hi Roseanne, yes I did sneak a little bit of a yellow Dresden in there to represent the sun which we haven’t had enough of lately!!! Thank you for your kind words regarding my new design.i’m hoping to get it quilted over the next couple of days. Thanks for popping in today x
