What a busy weekend!

Well it's Tuesday already and I seem to have accomplished quite a lot over the last few days. Managed to get my bedding plants in to all my pots and 'what I call' the roundabout, ready for the chickens to dig up!

The evenings have been spent sewing the binding for my mothers two quilts.  I thought Mike might be taking then to England this week as he had a meeting at Heathrow but sadly this has been cancelled so I am not sure when they will get there.

Then I spent a lovely morning yesterday making some small cards. 
I love it when I receive post from my quilting friends as there is always something very creative in the envelope.  So I decided I had better up my game!  Inspired by some photos on flikr of stamp swaps I had fun playing with my machine and attempting some applique for the first time.
However the best bit of the weekend was tea and Sue's.  Lots of goodies on offer, scones with real Jersey  clotted cream, parkin, Victoria sponge...... yum!
