The extra day being February 29th this year. I worked my little socks off on Monday and Tuesday to ensure that I could do what I wanted on Wednesday. I got the Boys off to school and cleared up the breakfast pots and went off for a long bubble bath while I finished the book I was reading.
Then I watched a movie I had missed at the cinema, which was good, and after lunch I sat down to try and finish my Linus quilt. I got the rest of the bones quilted. I thought it was a great idea to quilt bones on it, because of the dog fabric, until I actually started doing them! They were not easy and in places have not quite got a bone shape but I don’t think it matters. I then made the binding and attached it to the quilt. I am now in the process of sewing it to the back by hand, which is taking quite a while. It just needs a wash then and I will be able to send it off.
I finished at 10.00pm last night really tired but I had the best day ever. Pity there aren’t more “extra” days in the year!
PS If, like me, you have a watch with a date on it don’t forget to move it forward to March 1st. I have happily been putting 30th down all day today on things!!!!!!! Doh
