Today I also awoke to the most lovely and excellent surprise courtesy of the amazing Nova. Did you see this post?
I did, and it was the best start to the day. If you don't follow Nova's blog, a cuppa and a catch up, I jolly well suggest you start! She makes the most beautiful things, and has written some wonderful patterns, which, even if you aren't familiar with the lady herself, you will have seen all over the Land of Blog. Thank you again my lovely friend x
The rest of the day continued equally happy; the snow remains, so we went out with the sledges, and ended up at the park, where there was an albeit small slope, (and best, did not require any parental assistance), and it provided an hour of fun before the cold took grip and we headed back for hot chocolate...
After lunch, I reclaimed the table, and set to quilting my #scrappytripalong.
A couple of hours of nearly-straight-lining, and it was done! I quilted each side of alternate seams, and called it a day. It looks good, feels good too; so tomorrow I will trim and attach the binding, and that will be me sorted for a few chilly evenings of stitching. Wonderful.
And now, the small people are finally up in bed, time for a DVD. I think Mister Clooney has been waiting his turn since Christmas; so it would be rude not to.
