There's been a bit of talk about thimble collections on Cathy's and Hanne's blogs so I thought I would share my Brambly Hedge Royal Doulton thimble collection "Four Seasons" (and also books and 16cm plates in the background). I had to hunt for them on UK ebay in order to collect them. I am currently waiting on the Winter plate to arrive in the post to complete my "Four Seasons" plate collection. There is something irresistible about Brambly Hedge!

I have finally finished two Dear Jane quilt blocks after the first meeting of DJ lovers a week and a half ago. The applique block (D8 Dee Dee's Delight) is one I had to make twice because I forgot to leave a 1/4 inch seam allowance on the first block. The second block is C12 Family Reunion. I have finally settled on a colour scheme for my DJ quilt too. I'm going to do an "around the world" colour scheme in dusty pink, burgundy/red, brown tones, lemon and cream.
