My eldest brother passed away on the 24th October after being very ill for the last year. Even though we knew his illness was terminal it was still a shock to lose him. He has left behind a wonderful wife who nursed him at home until the last and six children, the youngest only 6 yrs old. So sad.
My Mum, who lives with my children and I in her own self contained part of our house, went in for heart valve replacement surgery on the 27th of October. Thankfully she has come through the op with flying colours and though she is sore and sorry she is on the road to recovery.
Needless to say I'm not sorry this week is over.

So I haven't done much in the way of sewing this week. I was hoping to get the last few orange peels done but have only managed one or two. So since I don't have anything new to show I'm posting a picture of a Jo Morton quilt (wall hanging size) that is on my to do list.
Because I like posts with eye candy here's some fabric I bought a couple of weeks ago. The Jelly Roll, some yardage and a few fat 1/4's from Moda's Luna Notte range...delicious! The yardage at the bottom of the picture is from Garden Party by Blackbird Designs. The fat 1/4 with the light background(in the middle) is from the Vanity Fair range.
Luna Notte is such a beautiful range and although I've not really ever been drawn to fabrics with black I really love the contrast the blacks give this range. If you haven't seen it yet do go check it out.
Be well and bye for now,
