Thursday Things!




My Think Christmas small Quilt finally completed.

I added the binding in the same fabric as the house block.
This was my other finish from our vacation, the binding on my Think Christmas small quilt.  Our competition for Quilt Club this year is an embellished item, so I thought I might do some embellishments on this for my entry.

The first day of School is over and the Boys got on well.  I went to the exhibition at Kedleston Hall but we were not allowed to take pictures (!)  It is a National Trust property and they can be funny about pictures being taken. 

The exhibition was by ladies who had taken inspiration from different parts of the Hall for their work and every piece was very different.  The two quilts were in the main entrance to the Hall and they were stunning and it is such a shame I can't show you.  

The trip in the afternoon filled my first day without the Boys nicely and as Wednesday is the only evening we don't do an after school activity, it was nice to sit down to family dinner in the evening.

My car is still poorly and is now waiting for a piece to arrive from the US!  This won't be here for about another week and then they have to fit it!  I love my car (!) I want my car back!!!!! Oh well.

Today is a home day, as in I have to do house jobs and then some work.  Tonight is our Swimming Club evening where I am for three hours (!) and tomorrow I have to go grocery shopping as well as making two cakes for the Village Produce Show on Saturday.  This is the Village competition for people who have grown things, made things and created things.  I am putting in my American Quilt for the sewing section.  I have not managed to make any jam this year because of everything which has happened, oh well. 

Saturday night is a swimming gala and Eldest is taking part, Sunday more house jobs!  I will get quilting eventually!!!!!

I have signed by to be Very Wicked in a few weeks time so have a look at which I have been up to (now where is my Halloween fabric, must get on with it!!!!)  There will also be a Giveaway, something spooky.

Hope you have a Thrilling Thursday and happy Quilting.
