Today is a day off that wasn’t supposed to be. According to my diary I should be sitting in a conference room in Zürich discussing the (exciting) ins and outs of Swiss taxes with a cantonal tax auditor. All of which would have meant that I was working 100% this week instead of the 50-60% I’m supposed to do…..but then, oh joy, the tax auditor (who against all expectations was a delightful man) finished up early and so today I DON’T HAVE TO WORK!!!!
Not that I don’t like my job – I do, but you know how it is, you can have too much of a good thing.
So today I decided to finally get down to putting a quilt together from my Sew Euro-bee-an bee sea glass blocks.
Because the edging fabrics are all so similar, I pretty quickly realized that I needed to add some eye candy – something to give this baby a bit of pazazz, somewhere for the eye to rest.
This morning I made that pink block you can see in the middle. Next up will be a dark blue one if I have enough fabric. Just singles of some of the outlying colours that we used for the sea glass. I think it will work and make the whole thing just a tad more interesting.
I probably won’t get done today – there’s way too much ‘life’ waiting to be taken care of – but I’m really back to feeling the love for this project
On the other snippets front, I’m celebrating the fact that the Siblings Together quilt did, after all, arrive safely – and without incurring any import duties. I had some nice emails with Delma at ST to confirm. Thanks for all the positive get through customs vibes that so many of you sent – they clearly worked like a dream!
Tomorrow I’m off to Barcelona on business (how grown up and cool is that!) – and I’ve already located what looks like a nice quilt shop only 20 minutes walk from my hotel – that’s going to be my reward for having to get up at 4.30 to take the plane.
Have a great week everyone!
