The Daily Telegraph says today is Blue Monday. This is because that Christmas was three weeks ago, everyone is waiting for payday and they have been back at work and the bills are starting to arrive.
However I feel that if you look at it this way you are setting yourself up to be blue. So Happy Monday everyone!
We got jobs done on Saturday and then Sunday I did some quilting!!!!! I know shock, a quilting blog with some quilting on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been quilting Eldest’s quilt and have been carrying on with that. It takes a lot to do this as it is a single quilt but longer so a little between a single and a double but I have been managing, but it does make my arms ache after a while.
Just to show you another quilting thing, I got this pattern in the post all the way from Australia (through Etsy). I am going to make Evalyn a new quilt for her new room and thought this would look great for a three year old but not be too little girl ish that it will last for a while. However I am going to get my UFO’s finished first.
I think the thing I miss most about Christmas when it has ended are the lights. I love the fairy lights and because they now have lots of white lights I decided to keep this set out and put them in my sewing room along the shelves. I think they look very pretty and I love the warmth they give to the room.
Here is our handsome Eldest at the weekend. They were out celebrating Girlfriend’s nephew’s 18th Birthday.
I have a basket of ironing to do tonight but tomorrow evening I am hoping to get some more quilting done.
I hope you are having a Happy Monday.
Hugs, Susie x
