A little sneak preview

Well I did manage a little stitching yesterday - but only a little - this week, being the last full week of term, will be so busy getting everything completed before the summer break both at my work and for our kids at their schools. Roll on a week tomorrow once we've all broken up and the merry-go-round slows for a while.
I had the chance to sit and hand stitch at my quilting group yesterday morning so hand appliqued some cream hearts onto a project that I can't show you properly yet as the recipient might just read my blog.
The weather here is so changeable - we had the most terrific thunderstorm just before it was time to walk to school, I'm afraid we chickened out and took the car. Now the sky is gloriously blue but keeps giving the odd shower. Unpredictable or what!

Must dash - work calls - a mountain of invoices to process to make sure they're paid before the end of term - Oh Deep Joy!!!!

That's a lovely heart applique project - so pretty. I'm in agreement with with about enjoying the change of routines for summer break. Life just gets too rushed sometimes doesn't it?

This looks interesting... love hearts, love purple. I'm very curious now.

I, on the other hand, am dreading the school holidays LOL. Who's going to entertain my son five mornings a week so that I can get some housework done - no sewing for me then I guess as I'll be doing the housework in my evening sewing time!

Just a few more days until summer break! The hearts look wonderful. Hope you get to have a few days of focused quilting time soon...

We've already broken up in Leicestershire (historic July fortnight puts us out of sync with the rest of the country). Wish I had the holidays off. The hearts look intriguing - and who could resist purple and lilac?

Anne - I really hope you enjoy the summer break. You deserve it. At long last time to yourself. Going anywhere nice?

Quilt looks beautiful, comme d'hab.
