The Lobster-Quadrille

"No wise fish would go anywhere without a porpoise"
- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

My son and I are reading Alice in Wonderland before bed. Today my only purpose was playgroup! The past couple of days I was feeling so ill it felt nice to get out. My husband has been a superstar, constantly telling me to relax and rest - he did EVERYTHING the past couple of days and I'm on the mend...

so naturally I got back to a bit of sewing today. I've now completed six blocks of the 'does not compute' quilt for my son, and look! In the corner there's a little bit of robot:


  1. It feels so good to start feeling better and wonderful to feel well enough to sew. I'm glad you are on the mend. (That's so nice your husband took care of things for you.)

  2. Glad you are starting to feel better Lucy! I have a day with two children who Refused to Nap!!! So no break for me today...I am so escaping to my studio when they are in bed. I need some Me Time! Keep taking it easy so you can be back in full force soon. That is an order. ;)

  3. I'm so excited to see this quilt come together! I love the colors and any sewing for boys is exciting! Glad you are starting to feel better, and YAY for helpful husbands!

  4. Can't wait to see the rest of this quilt come together! Sometimes husbands can be thoughtful and helpful ;) Still not well here, so no sewing for me too. I always make mistakes when I'm sick and have finally learnt my lesson!
