It is wonderful going out on the old bike again especially in this sort of weather. The wind from the wolds is strong, a warm wind, at the moment, but very bitter in winter. Of course, I ride it like an old lady, slow and steady, and I get miffed when I get overtaken, especially if they are older than me!!!. My next job is some panniers for the back, jolly red ones I think. Lots of cyclists on blogs I follow name there bicycles, I havent.... yet. As it was lovely and sunny I took the quilt out into the garden to show you a better picture, doesnt it look wonderful, next to the cycle.
I played around with the patterns for sometime with the quilt (arent digital cameras brilliant for this, click then compare.) I enjoy this part, mixing the colours around.
|first I tried this idea|
but in the end as we started putting the patterns together, we ended up going off a tangent and this is the end result. I know its not pefect, but my daughter loves it. Very young and vibrant. I cant wait to finish it.
