Little Patchwork Village

First week back at work is over.  Hooray.  I am grateful to have a job so close to home and working with people I really like, but it was so difficult to work up the enthusiasm needed to turn up on Monday morning after such a relaxing holiday.

Two highlights this week:  stitching group on Tuesday night - was lovely to meet up with the girls; and on Thursday our dear friends from Hobart, who have been holidaying on the South Coast, came to stay over.

Next week only 2 days at work:  with Wednesday being Australia Day and Friday is our RDO, I thought it wise to take Thursday as an A/L day.

During the last week off I stitched another "Little Patchwork Village" block

Sunday Afternoon
and this week I've stitched

Tree House
Three more blocks to stitch.

No other sewing this week but plans are being made - Diann thinks it's time to cut into a jelly roll and we might each make Floral Bouquet from the Jelly Roll Quilts book.  I need to work out if I have enough background fabric in my stash.  I am using "Bliss" and think Snow would look better than pure white.  Of course, I have 10 yards of pure white and probably not quite enough Snow- it will work out.
