I have just seven working days left until I break up for the summer holidays and, quite frankly, I can't wait. Although I really enjoy my 'new' job, I really enjoy being at home even more.
As the end of term is so nearly here I had to get a wriggle on with my 'Thank You for having us' present for the infants' school that my naughty babes have attended over the course of the past four years.
Here it is - in blog finished form as I still need to fix a message to the reverse.
(Moogsdad - being of a security conscious and untrusting nature - requested I blur the school's name if I was putting this on the interwebs!!)
I used red for the school colours and found this lovely cloudy fabric in Hobbycraft for the reverse. Monster and Minx obligingly drew the animal pictures for me, which I then appliqued.
This was my first foray into the world of patchwork and quilting, apart from a couple of mini-quilts, and I'm quite pleased with it. I know it's not perfect but hopefully the recipients will like it.
I now seem to have an overwhelming urge to make a patchwork throw for the living room, so this little package, that I ordered from a lovely etsy seller, may be very timely.
There's a beautiful (and simple!) throw pattern in Amy Butler's book (an accidental Amazon order that arrived today!!) that I may use.
Before I whizz off to catch up on all your lovely blogs here is the chicken news:
2 eggs every day this week and, for the past three days, a soggy shelled one too. It seems that we may soon be onto three eggs a day, as someone is practising :)
I hope the sun shines on you this weekend xxxxx
