The fabric includes plenty of Lotta Jansdotter's Echo, which is lovely. Also a few owls and other birds as the boys quite like them. As I mentioned before, the top was done by hand, but the quilting was machined. I'm hard at work on a similar one for the oldest. Not sure if it will be done in time for his birthday in October; there are quite a few hours needed for hand sewing!
The picture was taken at the allotments as there's a lovely tall stone wall there which is just right for draping quilts over. This is the view facing the other way.
I found out earlier today that I didn't get a much-needed job that I interviewed for, and it's left me a little gloomy. One thing that usually cheers me up is reading my favourite blogs, so I'm going to spend the next hour doing just that. And one day, if I'm lucky, this might be a blog that cheers someone else up, and really, that would make me so happy.
