...was all I managed to get stitched yesterday. My day didn't go as planned as it was turned around with a text message from Colette at 5.30 to say she was in hospital having contractions but nothing was actually happening - baby's due date isn't until 10th August so they are keeping her in for up to three days to keep an eye on them both. So a slight change to my plans as I was due to meet up with some crafting buddies and go down to Cowslip to spend the gift voucher I'd been given for my birthday. I still went but we also had Logan for company who was as good as gold but it meant it wasn't quite such a leisurely day. Cowslip is on a working farm so Logan got to see some cows and sheep in the fields as well as the farm cats and dogs and we even found a tractor for him to look at.
I did manage to pick up some lovely fabrics which I'm hoping to use for a mini quilt with stitchery designs on by Lynette Anderson. I'm hoping to transfer the three patterns I have already received onto the material this week and take them on holiday and maybe work on them there - if the weather is anything like it has been for the past couple of days I think I will be getting quite a bit of stitching done! Good job we've got waterproofs so we will still be able to take Max out for a walk each day.
Today it is my mum's birthday so I am taking her out for lunch not sure where yet all depends on the wretched weather. There are several garden centres that mum likes to go to so I expect it will be one of them so that we can also have a look around.
