Today is a half-day holiday in Zürich – for Knabenschiessen – aka ‘boys’ shooting day’. The schools actually have the whole day off and over the long weekend both boys and girls can take part in a shooting competition and visit a huge fun fair. In total about 3,000 kids take part – my son did it last year, but this time he seems to have had other plans.
Anyway, I felt pretty good about coming home from work at lunchtime and have spent the afternoon happily sewing along and getting some of my August bee projects taken care of….
This Garden Fence block for Sigrun in the European Siblings Together bee…..
..very quick and easy…I liked this one!
Two low volume Scrap Vomit blocks for Hadley for Stitch Tease 2…..
…I’ve had more than enough of cutting out 2 1/2″ inch squares now,thank you very much!
Now I think there might just be time to get on with a Fireworks block for me…..
…..although sitting out in the sunshine with my book sounds pretty appealing too…..this far into September it’s almost a crime not to!
