Back to school at last!
OK, the alarm going off for the first time in ages is a bit of a shock, but it was certainly nice to have the kids back to school today - especially given how much they were arguing yesterday evening. Too long at home and they get very bored. Summer is slightly better, but even so...
Anyway, I took advantage of the time by first going grocery shopping (oh joy) - I usually get stuff delivered, but do go in person once a month or so, and as there was little food in the house, this seemed a good opportunity to do so. But once that was out of the way, I decided to do a bit of quilting on the Hawaiian Quilt (II) - and here it is, a little over half done. Probably I won't do any more on it this week, as I have a lot to get done, but I feel better for it not being completed neglected. If I'm lucky, I might get some work done on my dyeing swap tomorrow - that's what I'm aiming for, though I do have a full morning.
Received in the post today some lovely things - a brown postcard from Diane, and below, some goodies from Karol-Ann. Recently I won a blog draw she hosted, and as I already had most of the fabrics she was offering up, she sent me an "alternative prize", which I adore. Some fabrics, which are lovely, as usual, but what I really like is this little doll - isn't she fab? She's now hanging out on my sewing room window-sill with my cute Valentine's pup and my funky plastic bag chicken I got in Camden Market (looks like these only mine is yellow and pink).
