Quilt for Great Aunt Betty

Not technically my Great Aunt Betty but one that I am very happy to inherit by marriage! She recently turned 90 and isn't up with the blog world so I think it will be okay to show you before I actually give it to her. Finished yesterday, then washed and dried- yes, I like them soft and crinkly too!
(Apparently the lawn mower needs a new blade, I say apparently because I confess, I am not the person who uses it the most!)

How appropriate that the day I find out I win a giveaway from Stacey at I finish my quilt with the polka dot border.

I am really enjoying the Blogtoberfest, not that I am participating, I am still finding my sea legs, so to speak, but I am feeling alot of crafty bloggy love and kindness around and well, I think it's nice.

Having a play with fonts, I am not the technological genius I may appear (ahem...!) so, just bear with me, would you.

Happy weekend, I am excited. Saturday mornings are my most favourite time of the week- what's yours?
