Good Morning BlogWorld I know we have missed a few days but we have been so busy. Here am I, above, on Mom’s knee yesterday as it was her Birthday!!!!! We shared some Popcorn as Dad and Boys were all away and busy so it was just her and I!!!
Although it was Mom’s Birthday I got some treats when my food delivery arrived! I am always envious of Molly as she gets lots of things to try and now my foody people are doing the same. So far I have tried the Training Treats and I really like them. I don’t need the weight control of course, as my Doctor says I am in perfect condition but I am sure they will taste nice and the pouch is wet food which I have never had, so that will be different to try.
Mom has been washing up a storm now that her new washing machine has arrived including all the beds and I was with her when she was unmaking them, any excuse to snuggle in the bedding!
So after a very busy few days I am just busy relaxing now that Mom is working at her desk this morning!!!!!
Thank you Treacle you have a snooze now! I went to the quilt shop that is closing at the end of this month and got a few things which were reduced and I thought I would show you what I got.
Thread was on offer and so were the needles.
Fat Quarters were on offer.
I always buy a new blade for my rotary cutter when I see them.
The material I got was £7 a metre which is half price to what it normally is. I just love the dog footprint material.
I just love the colours in this otter material.
And I love this beach fabric.
I don’t know what I am going to make with it yet but it will go into my stash until a project comes up.
I have finished the blocks for Kathleen Tracy’s Block of the Month and in July we will get the instructions of how to put it together. I have used scraps and bits to make the blocks so I hope they look good together when it is finished!!!!!
I had a lovely peaceful day yesterday and then went out in the evening to Piccolino in Nottingham for dinner with DH, Eldest and Fiance as Youngest is away for the week on his first training week at the Head Office so he will be home tonight and we are going out with him tonight as Eldest and Fiance couldn’t make tonight!!!! That’s okay I get to go out twice!!!!! Not doing my diet much good though!!!
Tonight we are going to The European in Derbyshire, which is another lovely little Italian Restaurant (above).
I have house jobs to do today and grocery shopping and then DH is out all day again tomorrow commentating, so I have errands to run tomorrow morning and then will get back and do some more quilting. The weather here has been better yesterday and today with the sun shining after all the rain from last weekend and the beginning of the week but it is still cool and not as warm as it should be for Summer!
Today, of course, is the Longest Day and it was getting light at 3.30am (Yes I was awake to hear the birds start their dawn chorus!!!!) and it won’t get dark until about 9.45pm so a very long day! Of course that means that the nights will, although slowly, start to draw in again, Noooooooooo!!!!! We are hoping that the weather is going to be okay on Sunday so we can get into the garden as we have not been able to do anything over the last couple of weekends because of all the rain!!!!
Whatever you are up to this weekend I hope you have a great time.
Hugs & Love, Susie xx
