planning and Penumbra


I've planned out a little hand quilting project that I will be starting tonight:


I finally got hold of this book from my local library and I am reading it slowly because, it might be too early to say, it could be one of my very favourite books...


Not only is the cover like a fabulous book shop quilt but the story is so enthralling, I hope it ends well!

This morning there was drama at our house as my son's first tooth stopped wobbling and came out! It's amazing how very tiny it is. Oh it makes me so strangely teary and sad my babies are growing up, he's a real boy!

  1. Now that looks like a great project.

    Strange but true that kids growing up should make us mums sad.

  2. That tooth! It makes me sad that I feel like I was there only yesterday and now my children are taller than me! Cherish the time, Lucy - I'm sure you do :) x

  3. When I saw your post, I though it sad pneumonia and I got so sad! So glad I mis-read the post title and you are indeed healthy and well. The little tooth is so sweet - it is hard to believe how much larger permanent teeth are! I hope your planning and the project go well!

  4. Oh I so know what you mean - my big girl starts school next year and I am certain it will be more traumatic for me than her. She told me last night though she wants to stay a kid forever. Bless. I am always telling her not to grow up too fast. Looking forward to hearing more about the book too. Always on the look for a good read

    My "baby" is 30 on Saturday and I have found myself being very reflective these last few days.......

  7. Working in a library, I love the "Finally got the book". That rings a bell! This is a book I want to read too. (Love the new photo pic by the way)

  8. OK so I am weird, but I have all my sons baby teeth, apart from one or 2 which went down the plug at teeth cleaning time! and while I'm confessing, he gave me his wisdom teeth too....

  9. I believe my mum still has all of my teeth. It's weird! Anywho, I have that book downloaded on my Kindle, I haven't quite got to it yet though, I have a pile of paper ones to get through first :o)

  11. I hope F didn't get too upset about the tooth. I also hope the Tooth Fairy remembered to come!!

    P.S. I have that book on my wishlist and am hoping someone is getting me it for Christmas!
    P.P.S. Just seen your latest post and the baubles look great!

  14. I overheard one mum recently saying that the tooth fairy was going to leave her little one a tenner! I checked my own teeth for wobbles, I can tell you!
