Hello and how are you?
It's been a less busy week as I've had a few days off, so I've been able to enjoy having my daughter at home. She is on her half term week and has enjoyed it very much so far.
We've had a trip to the zoo, country walks and my daughter has enjoyed sleep-overs with her Grandmother and Dad.
Last weekend my partner and I enjoyed a lovely mystery tour, this is what we call a drive with no idea where we are going or why! It's nice to discover places and roads you've never been to or down before, even if they're in your local area.
Here are some photos from our tour...
What fabulous views we enjoyed! My partner was very patient with me constantly asking to stop to take photos every five minutes ha ha!
I've started making a quilt!! I love a challenge Joy....it's a start - we will have to see if I ever finish it... Now, I'm sure most of you are familiar with Helen Phillips's Blog Well, after Christmas I finally treated myself to her book pretty patchwork gifts and have found myself totally inspired by it and have used her wonderful influences in my quilt.
A recommended read if you love everything on her blog - check the book out you'll love it too!
I've picked up the hook this week too, and have started another endless granny square quilt but in brighter colours this time. I thought the colours looked quite summery and would fit in nicely on the decking in the summer.
Welcome to my new followers - so lovely to have you with me.
Hope you've all enjoyed a lovely week?
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on the last post, you've made me realize that beige isn't always boring!
