A hint of Spring

I promised you a sneaky peak at my Spring Four Seasons quilt so............
here we are.
Just ignore the red, white and blue check that's just extra fabric stitched on temporarily to ease working in the embroidery hoop
Lots of stitchery to do in the white sections on this one so that'll keep me occupied in front of the tv for a while
Sarah spoke to the club physio last night about her elbow and he is going to sort out a programme of muscle strengthening exercises to help her. He doesn't sound anything like as pessimistic as the doctor did on Sunday so we are very hopeful that she should be able to manage this situation and continue to play at the levels she aspires to.
Other than that little news here - busy at work with year end on the horizon for me, Nigel continues to improve being very cautious about lifting anything but otherwise doing great
Nick has one football (soccer) game left to play this weekend for his team which if they win will mean they win their league - so fingers crossed for him. It's a toughie but they might just do it
As for Lou - she's turned into a total bookworm - I'm ashamed to say that we've only just joined the local lending library even after being here for well over two years - to be honest we always have lots of books around the house anyway but, as she's exhausted all of our stocks, she's now decided to try and do the same to the local authority's stocks. All well and good but it's even more difficult to get her to turn out the light at bedtime now. Mind you both her daddy and I can remember sneaking a torch to bed under the covers to read into the night at her age too - breeding will out
Have a good day all - more number crunching for me today - groan...............

Ooh - pretty colours ! I am a sucker for pastel and floral fabrics though you would never guess by the clothes I wear. Everything is plain and usually black - lol ! Best wishes to Sarah for a full recovery.

Loving your spring quilt, it's making my stitchery juices flow.

I'm with you on the torch beneath the covers, I still can't sleep unless I've read at least two pages. LOL

Lovely spring fabrics. I was allowed to read for as long as I liked and Alex is too, within reason. Mum used the " if you read all if it now, you won't have any left to read tomorrow" tactic. Worked for me and works for Alex.

Ah yes - sneaking a read in bed. My sister and I had electric blankets that had controls with bright lights behind the numbers. We would put the covers over our heads, taking the controls with us, and using them to light the book one line at a time.

Sending positive thoughts to both your athletes for great outcomes!
