I think it is Thursdays that bring out this rare streak in me. The girls have a dance club before school so I am home by 8am with the day spread out before me to do with what is required. I'm wide awake because I had to organise my two and get them out the door on time. And days like today I was on a real roll and even had the laundry in before we left for school. By 9:30am I had a banana cake all baked and cooling, calling my name like a siren's song. The laundry was outside in the sunshine, I was fed (not cake) and the dishes were done.
Off I went to the quilt shop for the backing fabric for the Across the Seas QAL. Now I am going to really shock you. That was all I bought. I didn't linger. I didn't see what new fabric lines were in. I didn't even paw the sales basket to see if something good was hidden in the bottom. No, I left and went and did the weekend grocery shop.
As I said, efficient or what?! I'll probably have to stay in bed tomorrow to recover from the shock.
The postman has been brilliant again this week, delivering two more bee blocks packages.
|These two from the brilliant Judith.
She is the one doing Bee Blessed if you are still interested in helping out.
|And these two from Trudi
Who would intimidate me with her quilting ability if she wasn't so incredibly nice.
(She's got a massive quilting frame that I covet!)
Now we have a bonus child over for a play so I shall have to keep that
I'm liking my Thursdays so much that I think that I will put them down as my Favourite Thing Friday and link this up with Shay at Quilting in My Pyjamas when she has her post ready later on. It often is up on a Thursday evening for me, what with her being on the other side of the world and way ahead of me.
