The Week that was - 41

Back to it after a week's break from blogging and I have really done quite a bit of sewing.  As you may already know, I received plenty of parcels last week which really was quite exciting as there was lots of fabric to drool over and gadgets to make extra special quilts.  I am having a week and a bit holiday starting on Tuesday so it could just be that I get to try some of them.  You might wonder why my mini break doesn't start from the weekend. Simply  just too much to get done at work before I take a break.

I finished the Bric~a~Brac block 1a &b and now I am waiting for block 2 to arrive.  I finished block 6 of Edwardian House
Block 2 of Betsey's Closet
Block 7 of Farmyard Frolics

and......the stitchery of block 1a for Tail Feathers........what a beautiful project this is.
I wasn't very happy with the stitching at first and didn't like how my satin stitch scallops on the tree looked so pulled them all out and started again only to realise (once finished) that the scallops should only have been one thread! Well it is staying like that now.

This week also saw me post about my Give-Away. There is still time to enter.....click here to read about it and take part!

And the icing on top of my week was picking miss M up from the airport in the wee early hours of Sunday morning.  Her plane was delayed by nearly an hour, so it was quarter to three by the time we got home and into our own beds.  I was so excited to see her come through the arrival gates my stomach lurched so much, I thought I was going to wet my pants :O  Two months felt like two years to me and I am so relieved and thankful that she is home safe and sound with stories and photos to share.
