monday, monday......

....so good to me, Monday morning, it was all I thought it would be....
I love that Mamas and the Papas song.
Queen's birthday holiday today. How come she gets a public holiday? I should've had one last week!
Today started off very lazily. The sun decided to shine so it was a mad dash to get all the washing out to dry before the weather decided to change. Lucky for me it didn't and we had a lovely sunny day, all day.
All the other inmates started to disappear, one by one, all going to amuse themselves in their method of choice so what did that leave....ME- all on my lonesome. I quickly got the sewing machine out and pulled out the two baby quilts that I have to do. I was leaving this for the holidays but today the creativity planets aligned and I just went with it.
The result is the two tops are done. I prefer the pink one with embroidered blocks but I am pretty sure my friend will want the bright appliqued one so I can put the pink one away for a later use.
In the photos the pink appears to be more of a salmon colour but it is quite pink, pink.
I also finished a swap gift that needs to make its way over the ocean. Can't show those goodies till they get to their destination.
Big happy dance!


 We even managed to have a roast dinner with Mum and Dad popping over for tea as well.
A great day. Wish I could have one of these every week, or even once a month, now that isn't asking too much is it? I would be as happy as a bunny jumping rope!
Hope your weekend has been a good one too!
Cheers
Marina

They are both cute, but oh I do like the little one with the embroideries - especially the little baby, baby with rabbit, little bird and shoes. So gentle. Glad you had a great day.

Very pretty quilts! I'm sure your friend will love them. Gosh how to choose?

So lovely both, Marina!!! Me too I prefer the pink one with embroidery. Much more soft and delicate. The other is very vibrant and bright. I think two great creations. Glad you enjoyed your day. Hope you have a great week too. Hugs. Eli

Gorgeous quilts and sounds like the perfect day.
Can we split the difference and have one once a fortnight?
4 days to go for me, how about you?
