NB: I would like you all to pretend that I posted this yesterday (I didn't because I was too busy laughing my head off watching Chris Addison live in Exeter. Brilliant).
- I suddenly realised what my etsy shop was missing, so I put together some low volume charm packs. They have been a huge hit. Yay!
- I've bought a bike! I am so excited - I've been using Adam's for a while now, and it's ugly (sorry Adam) and too big, so I am super excited about bringing home my vintage Raleigh Cameo. It's having a service and a bit of primping, but expect a very long and boring blog post about it in a couple of weeks. We only have one car, which Adam uses daily for work, so having a bike will finally free me from the constraints of the Exeter bus timetable!
- I kept seeing this QuiltCon quilt pop up on Instagram. It's by the insanely talented Victoria Findlay Wolfe, and you can see it (and more of her excitement at winning best in show) here. I just found it incredibly inspirational, and playing around with some ideas that popped into my head as I was admiring it has sent me off down a whole new modern/traditional quilts thought train which I am seriously excited to explore.
- My smallest child is obsessed with our syrup-tin-money boxes (I love syrup, hate throwing out the tins. We have a lot of money boxes). Even when getting involved in some 'cooking' (he has his own mixed spice tub, and flour and water was involved) he can usually be found wth a trail of coins
- Love the fabric selection Hadley put together for her month in the Brit Bee. Gorgeous, and a real simple-but-effective block. I am beginning to feel the pressure to get my quilt from last year sewn together before it's my month again (in May)
- That Hadley gets everywhere - I've been finishing off the latest block for the Eeep EPP bee, accompanied by a little needlebook she made
- I've been at my parents' house for the past few days in an effort to get a solid chunk of work done without interruption. My mother has an amazing eye for interiors, so her house basically looks like a magazine interior. I will attempt to rush round and take some more snaps before I leave. She has a few gorgeous vintage quilts as well. Missing my boys and looking forward to getting back home to Exeter again tomorrow though.
