Border design

Grrr. Blogger in it's wisdom is showing this border swag for the quilt design in the previous post upside down. I must do more designing I enjoy it so much. It's a very calming thing to do. The bow on the right is how it will look on the corners and on the left how it does between the swags.

 It is St Swithin's Day today and tradition has whatever the weather today, it will remain like this for 40 days.

'St. Swithin's day if thou dost rain
For forty days it will remain
St. Swithin's day if thou be fair
For forty days 'twill rain nae mair.'

It is now 8.45pm and we have had no rain....... Fingers crossed for the London Olympics. I wonder if events have had to be delayed because of unseasonal weather?


  1. No rain here either-fingers crossed! :o)
    I do envy you designing and getting it down on paper. At the moment I am getting pulled into the garden (we have actually had some quite good weather) and all sorts of quilt ideas are just humming around!
