It's a beautiful day...

We are so over the cold wet weather and today we were blessed with such a beautiful day...

I am up to my fifth block, I didn't finish all of them by today but that's OK there's always tomorrow...
I had a strange message from my sister the other day, to say that Claire(owner of my favourite local quilt shop) wanted to see me, and for the life of me I couldn't think why. It was strange because my sister does not sew, she probably doesn't even have a needle and thread to mend with... so why would she be in the quilt shop talking to Claire! Well I was a bit slow, I didn't click at all, Duh! My lovely sister had bought me a belated birthday present!!! Thanks Sharon:)
A voucher of the best kind...
with a message no less, PS 'no boring stuff' apparently that means no threads, no steam a seam ie: no boring stuff...
I haven't spent my voucher yet, I'll save it for something special. I had already been shopping here this week anyway...
Sorry not the best photo;) Please don't tell my DH that the lower 4 fabrics are for my scrap quilt, I just don't think he will understand the need. The other fabric just called me, do you want to know what it said? Hmm maybe I will show you sometime in the future! Oh and some applique pins, I'm going to teach myself needleturn applique!

Wishing you all a beautiful day too...

Nice sister! Good purchase too, very "un-boring".

Maybe your sister should talk to mine. Like the fabric I promise not to tell the DH.
