Well I am not the only one popping in to say hello today. Just before 9am this morning we were greeted with the sight of an incoming hot air balloon...
It scooted over the neighbour's roof and came down on the cricket pitch/park at the bottom of our road, much to the surprise, delight and relief of us all!
You don't see that round here everyday; in fact you most usually just don't, especially this early in the day/season and heading south! I am not a balloon expert, but I am guessing that making this landing was more luck than anything, especially judging by the raised voices and frantic burning that was going on!
And so my real reason for checking in is to direct you over to Sara - Sew Sweetness' blog, for full details of the Jaybirds Quilts Sew Along... yep I have a secret to reveal at last, well on Thursday to be precise!
Do check it out, there's also the opportunity to win some awesome swag if you join in the fun!
I hope you had a good bank holiday if you are in the UK, and a good Monday elsewhere; we went to the beach then shopping for a few Cub camp essentials, hence no sewing.
Tomorrow the kids are back to school, and I'll be home alone in a house still ridiculously full of chocolate; complete bliss!
