stair trouble

I got the baby quilt finished last weekend. 
I love finishing a quilt and clearing the sewing room in preparation for something new. Although my something new is going back to work on my bird quilt again.

This is where it's at at the moment. A few more branches added.
I am staring at it a lot trying to figure out where to go next.

I have been fiddling about with an app on my phone, altering the image to see if anything inspires me.

These last ones are a bit mad, but I quite like the very first one with the white circles.

On a completely different and more energetic note I completed my first ever half marathon yesterday. 
It was 13.1 miles running through the beautiful Mourne Mountains.

After a night and morning of solid rain the ground under foot was saturated. I was up to my knees in wet mud for half of the route. It was absolutely fantastic though and I enjoyed every single dirty minute of it.

I am having trouble climbing the stairs today though.

  1. well done on the half marathon, a marathon in the mournes implies not much running on the flat, so extra well done. The quilting on the baby quilt is fab and the I love the bird quilt
