It has been glorious in my neck of the woods the last couple of days. Definitely a welcome change from the rainy, cold days we had about a week ago.
This week has been a bit more chaotic than usual, Pedro has been on holiday, so our normal routine has been out of the window. Which is good but it also means that I'm behind on tons of stuff. Housework has been way down the list of things to do this week and getting up to date with my sewing has been high. So a day later than I planned to post it, my mini quilt for the Brit Quilt Swap was posted off this morning. I'm not saying who to yet, as it's a secret swap and they won't get it until Monday but this is what the finished article looks like
Now yesterday a parcel arrived for me but, because I hadn't posted my quilt away I wouldn't let myself open it!! I know, the will power I have at times it's outstanding. So it sat in my kitchen all yesterday and all last night unopened - willing me to open it but I wouldn't. So as we planned a day at the seaside today, I took my parcel with me to open in the car, after I'd been to the post office. And WOW!! I'm so glad I did. My partner Suzan or (Quiltitis as she is known on Flickr) as made me a gorgeous, amazing quilt. It's called the Sunshine Tree, which is very apt for the weather. I absolutely love it. Love it, love it, love it. It's already hanging in my kitchen.
We then spent a good part of the day at Burntisland beach building sandcastles. It's definitely been a beautiful day!
An ending. A beginning.
