Today has been a very quiet day. The weather was wet (again) and so we decided not to venture out. There is only so many times you can take walking in the rain in a week. We are lucky however in that we haven't been flooded unlike a lot of people in the south of England. The Thames Barrier has been in closed a number of times recently and has protected London from the high flood tides.This image has been taken from Google.
With nothing particular planned for the day I had time for sewing. I had already added the binding to my baby quilt but needed to hand stitch the back. That is now finished and I just need to take photos. I also knitted most of the ribbing for the front of my husbands jumper. I'm not taking a photo as it isn't very interesting to look at.
Finally I did a little work on my 'It's a dogs life' block. I started this before Christmas but it got put away during the holiday and out of sight meant out of mind. When I last blogged about this I had got this far- no stitching just the pattern ready for some work.
I'm please with my progress but would have liked to finish the third dog. I think this should be finished by the end of the week.
As a little rest cure from hand stitching I also cut out the pieces for a block for my 'Votes for women' quilt but I didn't stitch it as my machine is packed away. This quilt needs to be finished for April.
I'm linking this post with Slow Stitching Sunday at Kathy's Quilts. I hope you have had some time for stitching this weekend.
