I managed to finish machine sewing the first English Country Garden Block. I love it and am looking forward to doing the next two I've downloaded.

I've also completed the last appliqué block for my daughters butterfly quilt, it will be set on point with the other three blocks. This one is a free pattern from McCall's Quilting website.

I had planned to try and lay out all the butterflies and flowers and take a quick picture to show you but then I got a call from school...

Mr Bump here ran into a table and cut his head open. The first aider did a great job with the bandage. I am sparing you the picture of the A&E staff glueing the gash, which I took so he can show his class on Monday!

Having kids is traumatic and exhausting (and wonderful obviously)! Luckily I am taking a little break and going to the Minerva Crafts Meet-Up on 14th June, so that gives me something to look forward to!

I am attending the Minerva Crafts Meet-Up

A whole day filled with workshops, guest speakers, lovely people and prizes, held in a fabulous craft shop? Yes please!
The event is at the Minerva Craft Centre in Darwen, Lancashire. If you're nearby or fancy a fun day trip then come along. It's right next to Darwen train station and there's free parking if you choose to drive. I can't wait!
