Here in Somerset the sun is shining - and even better.............
Today is an extra day off for me.
Throughout the school year there are usually five days selected by the school to use for teacher training days. The children do not attend and in my case my contract doesn't require me to either.
Because of the variety of training options around, each school sets their own training or 'Inset' days and seldom do different schools have them on the same dates.
This usually means that I get the day off and my kids go to school.
I do love inset days.
Nigel seems to think that I should be making good use of this bonus day by tidying the sewing room.
The sewing room is crying out for a bit of TLC.
I'm on a roll.................
Three basket blocks completed
And three columns of four jewel box blocks all joined together.
When I looked at this last night it seemed to be all reds (artificial light probably to blame), this morning in the cool morning light of the conservatory it's much more random, the greens seem to dominate more today.
I just love how this pattern jumps out to hit you so much more strongly in the photograph than in the flesh.
Now, do I add another three blocks to the bottom for a single quilt or do I add two columns to the side for a double quilt - decisions, decisions, decisions..........
No, a day off is not a day for having to make decisions so.............
I think, this morning, I shall return to the other project and get the fourth basket block done ready to work out the next stage.
Can't see the tidying happening somehow.
What a shame.
