Our schools went back this past week and the weather is glorious. It seems such a shame that the children have to be in school. As we spent much of our last weekend culling a tree, I was promised a trip to the seaside as recompense! I have to say that it is my favourite day out. Saturday didn't disappoint either as we had blue skies and warm sunshine.

Unfortunately, due to our grand day out, I missed the sign up for the Mouthy Stitches Round Two. I was rather sad about this but I will just watch everyone else's makes from the sidelines.
I have not been completely idle on the sewing front. I have hand quilted each of the blocks on my Golden Quilt. I cannot get a really good photo to show you the results but I think that it has made me like the quilt a little! My goal for this week is to get the binding and label done. I will feel so much better when this quilt is ready for giving to my parents.
Recently I was alerted by Susan that Spoonflower were having a promotion. Susan kindly gave me a code that enabled me to buy a fat quarter with a huge discount on postage. I ended up buying this FQ for a princely sum of $2.
I love the soft colours and would seriously consider buying a little more of this fabric so that I could make a quilt for my bedroom.
