As I haven't been too productive on the stitching front the past couple of days I thought I'd share some more of the antique quilts from the York exhibition with you - real eye candy.
The weather has finally come around to believing it might well be summer over here - the temperature was probably around 25 degrees C today which is quite warm for here and the clouds were almost non-existent.
The two youngest children spent most of the afternoon in a neighbours garden having water fights in their mammoth paddling pool whereas my parents spent the day trying to crawl under a rock to keep cool - funny how the two ends of the age range view heat so differently.
I spent part of the afternoon on our bed having a nap as I woke at 5.30 this morning and just couldn't get back to sleep so got up and did some handstitching in the quiet - a rarity with a houseful!
I spent a good part of yesterday planting out bedding plants to give our juvenile garden a splash of colour this year before the new shrubs and perennials get established.
Stitching wise I did potter a little yesterday adding a little more to the pale pink, pale green and white offering that was going to be a wall hanging but may well have graduated to delusions of grandeur and be heading for cot quilt status :o)
I also managed to stitch quite a few more hexagons onto my sofa throw and am now almost half way round the penultimate border row - so a picture of that may be forthcoming a little sooner than I thought.
My parents go home tomorrow and I shall miss them, but it is always nice to get your home back to yourselves again - peace, perfect peace - or it would be with out the kids :o) Bless 'em!
