It's Friday again already. I know I have asked it before but where does the time go - They say that time passes more quickly as you get older but it is getting a bit ridiculous. Maybe it's because I am getting a bit slower to do things?
The marathon of the past few weeks with trying to get Sam's 21st birthday quilt finished is almost over. It is being quilted at the moment and will be returned to me next week ready for the binding and then gift giving on Sunday week (10th)
Other than the white quilters cotton the entire quilt is made from scraps. I am really pleased with the way it has come up and I know that she is going to love the colours.
I had a few days off work this week with what I describe as a "Black Headache" a real blinder - The mother of all headaches - You know the sort? Amy decided that she would do some baking for me. I was just a bit stressed when I saw the state of my kitchen.
I did remind her that all good cooks clean up after themselves and she assured me she would. She was just a bit miffed at me for taking photographs of it.
But true to her word she did clean up and then presented me with a hot chocolate filled cupcake with chocolate ice cream. It was so yummy that I forgot to photograph it.
Look what arrived in the mail yesterday. I have been blogging since late 2008 and decided to get my on-line journal published into a book. 2008 - 2009 and another for the whole of 2010.
They arrived yesterday and are wonderful. We all had a lot of fun last night looking back at the record of our happenings over the past 2 and a bit years.
I purchased mine from here.
Here is Block 9 of my Flowers of Love Quilt. Did you notice that it has been quilted? I have received the quilt back and it is now bound and waiting to be shown to you when I release the finishing instructions later in the month. Blocks 1 - 8 will only remain on my site until the 16th April so if you haven't downloaded them yet you had best get a wriggle on. You can download the Block HERE.
Just before I go I wanted to tell you about a new on-line store that belongs to my friend Vicki. The Pickledish Patch - Hop on over and take a look at all of her goodies.
Have a wonderful weekend.
