Baby Steps

My socks are coming on slowly. The first sock has two toes!!!

(Sorry- that looks more like a form of torture than a craft project!)

I am trying to eat more healthily, but today it is cold and I had a craving for warm custard and ginger cake.

 (Don't tell anyone- neither were home made)

Remember this?

Since then, I have added some lovely, meandering pathways and today I am beginning to quilt it using mostly free-motion machine quilting. It is quite nerve-wracking, so fortified by cake, I will be taking it slowly and pausing at each step to make sure I am on the right track.


  1. Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Lovely sockies, gorgeous puddingy snack, fabulous quilting!

  2. I love the picture it's gorgeous! The socks are looking great and the gingerbread is great for a winters day, I never make mine either, maybe I should look for a good recipe! :) x

  3. Wow toe socks! I love the picture, it's going to be great quilted :)

    1. Love the socks, what with those and the cake and custard it looks like you had a proper cosy day!

      Your quilt is just lovely, gorgeous blooms of colour. Can't wait to see it all done! x
