Hand sewing

I got the binding on my brother's quilt and I've just started the hand sewing part. I find it relaxing and perfect for a damp rainy day such as today.

I've been a little indulgent today, nothing extreme, just a couple of small things that lift the spirit.
First, I went to lunch with a friend and then we went to the local craft shop where I have my things and we bought matching pottery mugs. I'm sipping my tea in it right now. Funny how some wouldn't care what they drink from, but a special mug gives others such pleasure. It must be the artist's soul.

When I got home, I went out and cut a few tulips. They're from my backyard where they can only be seen if I'm out there which its too cool for anyway.

I've been making lists and getting things ready for our retreat next week too. I made a bag to hold the memory foam pad I take with me. I have sleep issues and it makes a difference for me. Last year. I bought one of those double high twin air mattresses and with the foam on top, it's perfect.

You look relaxed Holly....nice to sit back and put the finishing touches on your quilt. I went out to supper tonight with my sewing buddies. Went to Swiss chalet and had a lovely chicken and pasta dish....was wonderful!!! Won't see much of them now til fall; they all work during the summer or go to their trailers; camping.
