Thursday sure does come round quick!!! No sooner is it Monday than its the end of the week! Why do the weeks fly by when you are having fun but go slow when it is all work, work, work?
I have managed to get all my work done this week, as well as uploading all the Elements for the swimming club submission for its Quality Mark. This year the ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) has decided to re-brand itself as SwimEngland and they have re-branded everything else. So what was Swim21 is now SwimMark but of course that means changing everything – headed paper etc. Which was slightly annoying as I had already done everything with the old name!!! Never mind it is all done now and in the hands of the officials and am so glad it is done before we go away.
We have a busy weekend coming up, starting tomorrow for me as I am having coffee with Jayne before we both disappear on holiday. Then I am visiting another good friend who is not very well. Saturday DH and I are out to dinner and Sunday will be house jobs and hopefully getting the garden tidy again before we go away. Sometimes I do wonder why we do all this work before we go away on holiday!!!!!!
This is the next quilt project, which I showed you earlier in the year. This is for Evalyn for her new room and the aim is to get it finished by October for her Birthday. I am also continuing to finish my UFO’s, which is my goal for this year. Planning forward I would love to start a quilt for our bedroom so that will be on the list as well. I am still finishing my super secret quilt, getting the binding sewn to the back and this is something else I want to get finished before we go on vacation.
Tidied the sewing room before I put Eldest’s quilt on the bed. I always like things tidy and cannot stand a mess, in fact I am a bit like Monica from Friends with her clean/tidy freak!!!!
I am going to our big quilt show in Birmingham on Friday August 11th and can’t wait, although I am going to be good and not buy a lot but am on the look out for some fabric. I have actually treated my self to a VIP ticket which means that I should, at least, have somewhere to sit for lunch which is the only thing I think they have wrong with the show, not enough seating especially at lunch! I will make sure my camera battery is charged to get lots of pictures.
#TBT – Brothers and cars – always!!! This was taken at Epcot in 2010 at the Test Track ride. Cool Dudes!!!
I hope you are having a Thrillling Happy Thursday.
