Hello my lovelies. I seem to be missing in action quite a lot of the time this summer. Well I’m just busy having a good time. The summer will soon be over and I don’t want to miss out on any summery activity I could possibly be taking part in. I have noticed that a lot of the back to school merchandise is disappearing off the shelves in the shops which reminds that the kids will soon be back to school. I can remember getting my Sarah ready for back to school all those years ago. Nowadays she purchases her own supplies but I must admit I still love looking at all the new stuff. And although I don’t buy pencil cases for myself I still have a good look at them at this time of year. I can’t believe how time is flying.

I’ve done so much over the last few weeks that I can’t remember half of what I did. I can tell you that I have been living a very fulfilling life. Probably because I have stayed away from watching the Olympics. My Sarah and I have had a few road trips exploring the north of my little corner of the northeast of England. We’ve made new friends and had one or two catch up sessions with old friends. Life is much easier in happy quilter land of late.

Now let’s move onto a little sewing news. Well to be honest there isn’t a lot because I have been keeping busy by doing other things. I’ve been playing with woolly bits …..

I’ve been re-acquainting myself with hand quilting tools …..

And in my quest to stamp my own personality to my space, I’ve added a lick of paint to old furniture …..

And now and again I observed nature do what it does quite naturally …..

So far it’s been a pretty good summer. My Sarah and I have recharged our batteries in readiness for any opportunity that might come our way this autumn. There’s so much to look forward to. I look forward to the warm colours of autumn. And this year, Christmas will be very different, something else to really look forward to.

Something that always amazes, and I have mentioned this many times before but I’m going to say this again. I am amazed about how many people read my simple daily ramblings. Readers from so many different countries around the world. When I got up at 6am this morning these were the countries I got hits from, US, UK, France, Russia, Japan, Australia, Brazil, Algeria, Singapore, Ireland, Canada, Netherlands, Belgium, South Korea, Italy and India, just to name a few. It’s amazing! I think it must be time to organise another giveaway just to say thank you for popping in. So keep reading and I will announce something soon. In the meantime, I will find some nice prizes to award to the winners.

So for this evening, this very happy and super ambitious quilt maker will be making circles to appliqué onto a 25 UFO blocks. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something that you truly enjoy doing. Until you read me again,

Happy stitching ♥ ♥
