Ta-Dah!

Yes after all that anticipation I have finally finished Youngest’s Quilt!!!!  Phew.

Youngest is actually helping with the photograph by standing on a chair and holding up the completed quilt.  As you may have guessed he loves camper vans!!!

The back which is actually navy, like the binding, but as we are outside and the sun is actually shining at the moment you cannot see it very well.

He loves it and it is at the bottom of his bed at the moment as it is still nice and warm so really no need for a quilt at the moment.

Eldest’s quilt is on his bed now too.  I managed to get all his bedding washed, dried and ironed and the spare set put on so have put his quilt on top of that;  Of course it is now covered by the boxes which contain my stash of material but you can see it.  There is of course room for Treacle to sleep when I am sewing!!!

We had a lovely few hours at our friends on Sunday for Brunch and got to sit with some other good friends.  We are so lucky as we are out again on Saturday evening at some other friends for dinner and we have not seen them for quite a few months.  I love summer for spending time with friends and getting to be outdoors.

Here is a picture of Treacle from Saturday morning on the way back from her Doctors without a bandage or the dreaded cone of shame!!!  She has been a little monkey this week licking her scar but we have put a temporary bandage on over night and left the cone out but so far she has left it alone!!!!  In two weeks time she will be able to go and have an Airecut!!!!

Took this this afternoon, you can see how blue the sky is and it is lovely and warm  These Peacock butterflies are on the Buddleja.

Although the swimming club is on its two week holiday we are watching the World Championships on TV from Budapest.  Adam Peaty beat the World Record this morning in the heats for 50m Breast at 26.10 and this afternoon has beaten it again in the semi-finals with a 25.95.  Our swimmer, Molly Renshaw, is also out there and will be competing later in the week.

I hope everyone is having a lovely Sunny Tuesday.

Hugs, Susie x

    Youngest’s quilt looks fabulous!!! I don’t know how you wrangle a big quilt through a domestic sewing machine!!! So glad you got to enjoy time with friends this weekend – always important and so much fun. Treacle is looks great and I’m glad she is leaving the bandage alone without the cone…soon she will be sporting a new haircut and look so smart! Those butterflies look huge or are you just really zoomed in?? So, what are you going to work on now that Youngest’s quilt is finished?

    Youngest’s quilt is just beautiful! Mom and dad used to have an orange VW Bus a l-o-n-g time ago. They actually talked about having 12 kids. haha
    You are looking just beautiful, Treacle♥
