Its lovely up in the Dales no matter what the weather, and this holiday the weather has certainly been against us. We girls managed a shopping trip to Harrogate on Saturday, while the boys went off to the movies, and Sunday was spent searching out Garden Centres that might be open (none were). Monday unfortunately has been raining most of the day, so not even a walk into the village, just a totally relaxing time.
While I have been sitting here, I have played and added some finishing touches to a block that I am going to enter into a competition. Now I have never entered a competition before, so I have no allusions of winning. I am not even sure I should be showing you the block, so I will just give you a sneak peak.
The theme of the block had to be Summer and as you can see I have gone for a summery scene. So, wish me luck, it will go in the post on Wednesday.
The other thing that has kept me out of trouble is this...
Ages ago I started this blanket which was featured in Country Homes and Interiors, and every now and again I get it out and play a bit more. Its easy to bring something like this away with me, but this time I didn't bring enough of the white, hence only some of the blocks are finished. Mind you had the weather been better here I don't think I would have even got this many made.
Off home tomorrow, hope you all had a good Easter, and the Easter Bunny was kind to you.
