It doesn't take much to cheer me up. Today has been a blue day and I'm not feeling down!
I noticed these brave pale blue muscari peeping through the ground in a sheltered flower bed in the front garden. I hope the promise of colder weather this week does not kill them off. Today is pretty overcast but at least it isn't raining.
I travelled to see one of my new friends from the blogosphere for coffee this morning. Gina blogs at The Occasional Quilter and lives just a thirty minute drive away. We have exchanged tweets and comments on each others blogs but never met. Gina has been quilting for a long time and had so many beautiful, multi-coloured quilts to show me. She seems to have covered every technique in the book. I only hope I can be like that in time. She also makes the most amazing cake. I was totally overwhelmed when she presented me with a pretty blue and white mug rug. She knew I was just learning to do foundation paper piecing and so had used that technique for the block. I had a great time asking questions about quilting and meeting a fellow crafter so the morning flew by. Thank you Gina!
Finally on the blue theme, I have washed and blocked a lacy card for Isobel. It is almost dry and just needs a button and then it is good to go.
Have a great day,
