I'm having a navy and red kinda day.

This quilt thing is starting to take over my house, I currently have not one, not two, but three on the go at the moment......and I've already started collecting fabric for a fourth. I'm thinking it might be time to order an entire roll of blanketing to have on hand not only for quilting but for some other projects I'd like to give a go.
I would like to be finishing Megan's as it was started first but I'm waiting for some pretty backing fabric to arrive, so after making up some of the blocks for Ryan's quilt a week ago I laid them all out this afternoon and stitched them all together. It's all a bit random at the moment, I'm sure it's going to look much better when I add the extra pieces around the edges.
 While Megan and I were in town this morning ( while Ryan was at cricket ) we did a bit of shopping, I was immediately drawn to this cute little outfit by Rhubarb the minute I saw it. See more red and navy.....I've loved these colours together for a while now and as I look around the shops it's clear that they're the colours of the season for the little ones!
 These pictures really don't do it justice, the quality is so beautiful.
 We found a cute wooden bead necklace to match so now the outfit is almost complete, all we need now is for our new knee length boots to arrive.
I love a bit of retail therapy!

Thanks for stopping by.
