Today's the Queen of England's birthday so I'm having a cup of tea in my fancy mug. I'm not going to lie, I totally got a jump start on the whole cool mug thing this time, luckily I saw Sarah with her Queen's birthday mug over on Instagram and wasn't going to be caught without a full choice of mugs. Do I have a problem? YES I DO. But sometimes doesn't IG make you want to buy stuff? Most of the time I'm able to quash it but I knew the mug was going to get to me. I remember hunting down that Cath Kidston Jubliee mug like it was big game!
Phew. I have a cool mug. It was a tough choice, just look here at all these options! My mug is by Dunoon but there are plenty of fantastic mugs out there. I'll be chugging some coffee out of this one later. I mean tea. Come on.
More sewing done this week, pretty excited to have all the applique done on my Scrapbasket Sampler. I thought about doing the majority of the applique without sewing the border onto the body of the quilt, but in the end I attached it so that I could make sure I was happy with the layout. Some of the pieces overlap into the first row of blocks.
It does make blanket stitching more challenging but not impossible. For a few minutes I thought I was done but then remembered there were side borders. So close.
Wednesday I went over to my mother-in-law's with my Easy Addition blocks. Doris has a big floor space and plenty of patience to make sure that all the blocks are laid out without two matching pluses ending up next to each other. So those are all in a pile and I'll start sewing rows together. Hopefully it will go together easily.
Hope your week finishes out great! We've had some nice sun and we're expecting rain tomorrow, or maybe Saturday depending on where you look. I'm happy for the rain, it will extend the wonderful green season here longer. Have fun !xo
