What a week this has been!
My sweet Blossom has been quite unwell so on Monday I whisked 2yo Cully May away for the day and we had the best of times strolling by the beach, picking flowers, cooling by the waterfall, home to my place for lunch, a movie and plenty of play with her favourite thing - stickers.
One the way back to mummy we stopped by the 'sticker shop' and after she chose a few new sheets of them to take home we slowly browsed a while so I could find a treasure or two myself and it wasn't long before I found something perfect for a project I had in mind.
A gorgeous cream hanger, perfect for a mini quilt.
Monday night I was about to make a start when a migraine took hold so I set it aside and then on Tuesday afternoon Mr E came home from work rather ill with a nasty virus.
He continued to get worse on Wednesday and by Thursday morning we knew some medication was needed as an infection had set in as well.
While he slept (a lot) I cooked a pot of chicken soup, made nourishing smoothies and did little bits toward my mini-quilt project...
Once the antibiotics kicked in late Thursday evening he picked up quickly and by this morning my beloved was much improved. Great sigh of relief!
No longer needed as a nurse at home I set off to help Blossom for the day as she was well again herself and had a number of errands to run so an extra set of hands to watch Cully May and Rafaella is always a good thing - besides I love spending time with them!
We walked a lot, got all our errands done and had a lovely relaxed lunch in a cafe we often go to.
My feet are sore tonight and my body weary as it has been a long week but I am also happy to have been there for my family and rather surprised that in between everything I was able to turn one of my stitcheries into this gorgeous little mini quilt!
The pattern for "Taking in the View" is here in my shop and if you make it I hope you email me a photo because I'd love to see your version.
Tomorrow or the next day I'll show you how I finished my vintage style needle-book but for tonight I am going to put my feet up and enjoy some apple pie and a movie with hubby.
May the Lord bless you and I with a peaceful, healthy and beauty-filled weekend,
