busy fingers

Things are back to normal over here. I've tried to stay in vacation mode for as long as possible but after a busy schedule at work.... I wish I had vacation again (lol)! Though I did manage to work some more on the quilt for the summer swap It's a quilt with cut out fabric flowers and stitchery stems and leaves. I'm almost done with the top, just have to add the borders.

These two I did in France. I always have something to do, a nice small work, with me on holiday.

Like this Ohiostar pincushion, I made it last spring vacation.


I just love to keep my fingers busy. Notice the tiny quilt in the back, it's a perfect match with the new polkadot teaset, my last purchase.

How about you, do you take your projects with you while on holiday? I'm curious, do you feel the need to keep your fingers busy all the time?
Well, I think I now....there are borders to sew on. Have a wonderful day!

a month later

Luca's first steps on the beach

Here it is almost a whole month later, is a month later, and I am just now catching up on reading blogs. My family and I had a wonderful summer vacation in france. We had have lovely weather, the most delicious barbeque dinners, some wine and done a bit of sight seeing in the area. Luca made her first steps on the beach and we celebrated her first birthday. I’ve started on my project for the summer quilt swap, show you some pictures later. For now I go back reading your blogs…I’ve a lot of catching up to do! Can't wait to see all the wonderful things you are working on and writing about.
Hope you are all fine and enjoyed summer too!
