Not as planned.

 When I was last here I had my following day all planned,then as always something messes it up,not that it could be helped this time.My son set off on his scooter for work at 730am as usual and 7 Min's later he phoned to say he had had an accident,me still in my pjs's and Billy in his pjs I  had to rush and put on some trousers and jumper and jumper for Billy and jump in car with hubby and go to the rescue.The road was very slippy with the light rain we had over night and the falling leafs that Jacks back wheel had just slipped to one side.Luckily he was not to badly injured he has a badly sprained ankle and bruising to his side.He was just concerned about the scooter but no damage to that just an indicator which can be easily replaced.So after a hospital visit I didnt do much for the rest of the day,I had planned to do gardening well I did do a little but my get up and go had just got up and gone so I did some sewing instead,it was the stress you see couldnt concentrate on house work or gardening just the sewing lol.This little quilt is what I sat and made for pussy cat Patchouli,I have tried to tempt her to sleep in a basket but she is having none of it so I made her the quilt to sleep on as she tends to always sleep on the floor in our bedroom in a corner,I thought I could put the quilt in the corner for her to sleep on,we will see if it works.

Patchouli's quilt.
      Earlier this month I had my birthday recieved some wonderfull prezzies quite spoilt I was.My husband said he did not know what to buy me so he gave me some money which is not like him he always buys me lovely things but i accepted.I ordered some clothes from Joe clothes that I only treat myself to once in a blue moon,what do you think? Then I bought a sewing book and some bits of material very pretty.Think I will make a nice little pillow with it.
      Well bye for now look forward to your comments.

Take Care Love Jill xx

White blouse which looks very nice with jeans and boots.

Dont know if you can tell but the back is longer than the front (what do you call that iv forgot,lol)


Dont quite know weather I want to keep the dress its shorter than I useually wear.


Sorry not a good pic,but this is a lovely top notice the little key on the back isnt it cute?

Had to show you this quilt I bought at the carboot last week,the lady only wanted £8 for it,its in perfect condition not a mark on it.

Book and material I bought and a little heart I made with some.


  1. Glad to hear your son wasn't too badly hurt in his accident - it must have been a horrible way to start the day for all of you. Patchouli is a very lucky cat to have such a nice quilt to sleep on! And your birthday pressies are great - a lovely selection!

  2. Hi Jill, that must of been so awful, I'm so glad he wasn't too badly hurt, non the less a terrible shock. Patchouli's quilt is lovely, my two always sleep on my numerous quilts, Merlin has his spot on an old Eidy on the landing window sill. Your clothes look lovely, and the fabric heart is so pretty love the fabrics
    Have a happy weekend xx

  3. That must have been awful to get the call. I'm so glad that all was well Jill. I am so glad to have you leave me a comment so I could find you. I love the pretty clothes you ordered for your birthday. So pretty.
    Your kitty quilt is darling!

  4. It is awful getting a call like that. I know, as I had such a call. My daughter was about 8 at the time and was in a friend's car. I ran all the way up the lane and saw the state of the car. Luckily there were not seriously hurt. I am glad that your your son was OK in the end.
    Lovely looking quilt!

  5. Your day surely started with a nasty jolt--I think it wasn't surprising that you couldn't 'settle' afterward.
    I think I recognize several of the fabrics in the little quilt from my years of working in a quilt shop---I keep telling myself that I need to use some scraps for small quilts--to put on a table or on a chair back--or willingly give to the cats.
    I like your white blouse--it has a nice vintage look.

  6. So sorry to read of your son's accident, but glad that he was ok. My son has had special winter tyres put on his car which have a really good grip. I wonder if your son can get winter tyres for his scooter?
    Your cat will be very snug in her new quilt, as will you in yours... what a good buy!
    Happy belated Bithday! Love all your purchases :)
