Weekend

We had the quiet weekend that we planned enjoying each others company and catching up with some little projects.  I finally finished Hector's quilt, it was packed and posted off to him this morning.





We had some unexpected visitors, our neighbour came to do some crafting and stayed to bake a cake to take home for their tea.


We also had some woolly visitors, that somehow got through two fences to visit our garden.





We did have some fun trying to get them back but it is always nice to have visitors.  Reading and catching up with the family was also on the agenda. I say this regularly, how did we ever survive before the age of all this technology that enables us to keep in touch?  I also had another surprise parcel from a fellow blogger bringing so much joy.  Nothing beats the excitement of opening mail.


We have another busy week with medical appointments covering three days this week.  But I am happy to say that Gerard continues to improve each day and for that I am thankful.

See you soon.

  1. I'm so pleased to hear that Gerard's doing well, sending my best wishes for his continued recovery. Hector's quilt is something he'll treasure, I'm sure, stitched with so much love. How lovely to have visitors drop by, both neighbours and the woolly variety.

  3. Hector is going to be one happy little boy when he gets his quilt....it's beautiful.

    Cheeky sheep...lol. I'd rather have them than the cows we got in our garden once...oh my life I just about passed out when I heard them breathing heavily and munching ivy by the front window. I looked out and found two of them in the garden and the rest of the herd sauntering up the road. They had escaped from the field at the back of us.

  6. Oh those woolly visitors are of the cutest sort! Hopefully they didn't cause too much damage in your garden! And how fun to craft and bake with your neighbor, such delights! I agree technology definitely has its benefits in keeping in contact with our family in faraway places. Enjoy the week ahead :)

  7. Good news about Gerard, and love the hexies on that quilt. I am just thinking of doing one myself...
    Nice to see the sun, isn't it?

  8. Good news that Gerard is mending and both of you are enjoying various projects.
    How those sheep made it through not one but two fences is quite something. The grass must have been a lot greener on your side.

  9. Finally had a chance to catch up on all your "doings" and your creations. Such a busy girl!

    I have a quilt my grandmother made with the flower pattern on Hector's quilt. Do you call it "sunflower"?

    As always, I enjoy all your posts though I don't always comment. Perhaps I'll do better now that my tea book is at the printer. Just awaiting the proof.

    Hugs and best wishes to you and Gerard, Patsy

  14. The quilt has so many points of interest for your grandson. Always fun to have company. I don’t know if you would have chosen your island if communication was not very good. It might have made it a tougher decision.

    Beautiful.
    I love a good, relaxing weekend.
    We finished unpacking all the tubs in the garage this past weekend.
    If I never see another tub, it will be too soon!!!
    Have a blessed week, my friend.

  24. Good to hear your husband is getting better. Nice to have friends stop in and share in creating some pretties and baking. I would love that. I love that quilt made with love. You stay so busy and create so many nice things. I envy your energy.
    Thank you for your visit to my blog. I must say it is so nice to be surrounded by the beauty of the blooms. Raining here today and the pollen coats the ground.
    Happy Tuesday, betsy

  25. The grass on your side of the fence must be very tasty indeed, far better than the grass outside your garden! Hector will love his quilt, it is very sweet. I am glad to hear that Gerard is getting better by the day. Hope all your appointments go well x

  36. I love the little quilt, and I'm sure Hector will, too. Babies love those bright primary colors. We used to have the neighbor's cows find a way in to visit us occasionally. I think I'd rather have your wooly sheep! So glad to hear Gerard is doing well.
