Across The Sea
My weekday mornings always follow the same pattern, chaotic hullabaloo as I get myself and 3 children ready for school, then we walk to nursery and on to school, with me hustling and chiding them along. Once they are all safely deposited at school/nursery, I hurry home, put the kettle on, make some porridge while I tidy the kitchen, get the laundry on, then I settle down at the computer and enjoy my cuppa and porridge whilst I read blogs and stuff. Very often the whole morning disappears before I know it, and it's time to pick up my youngest from nursery again.
Not this morning! Thanks to Hadley's post about her bumper-bonanza-super-sewing-day yesterday I gulped my coffee, scoffed my porridge, switched off the computer, and got out my sewing machine :)
I pulled out my Across The Sea quilt blocks and I managed to get all the blocks sewn together, and both borders on before I went to nursery! I even managed to get a couple of pictures of it before I dashed out the door :)
