Today there was sewing!
Quite a good bit, as it happens - the kids slept in and I did some sewing while waiting for the boiler guy (who, as it turns out, was apparently booked for the afternoon rather than the morning, which is what I picked when they asked my preference and what I had written on the calendar - touch wood, the boiler seems to be working properly again - perhaps 3rd time's really the charm?). I made this little mini quilt top, which will go to one of my ALQS participants whose original quilt may or may not ever arrive. I may even quilt it tomorrow, who knows. It's actually more blue and less grey than it appears in the photo, for what it's worth.
On the right is most of a New York Beauty block - I need to put the final arc on, but ran out of time (Alex had a friend round to play, so I had to wind down - not that they needed me, but I wanted to have a cup of tea and a chat with his aunt, who was dropping him off). Anyway, the block is just laid on top of the orange floral, but you get the idea...
