I thought I'd be pushing my luck to get the BOM quilted before I go away in August...and just two weeks later, she's finished! The binding in ready to go, so it won't be long until she gets a proper photo shoot.

Bella is loving the opportunity to check it out and curl up for a nap.

The Mulgrave Maker's Market was on yesterday. Though a lovely sunny day, it was very windy, and I was glad we were indoors. The only downside was less traffic than usual, and therefore less sales. However, my new little Scotty Dogs proved to be very popular. I just need to work on making more toys in "boy friendly" fabrics.

I was also surprised at the number of people who thought it was OK to bring their dogs (some as large as golden retrievers) into an indoor market, particularly when there are so many babies and kids around.

It's another gorgeous day today; it might be winter but it's sunny again, and all the jonquils are flowering.

I love your BOM quilt, looking forward to seeing it complete.
I was at a market recently where a woman had a dog on a lead and it proceeded to cock it's leg on a pole right next to a stall. She didn't seem to think it was totally out of line.

Love your stall set up.

I don't get bringing a dog to an indoor market either. Not sure I'd want to bring my pups to an outdoor market either.

I'm looking forward to seeing your finished quilt. The quilting I can see so far is amazing!
