This week

This was our second week back at school, my little Mr. changed schools so it's been an exciting time for us, getting used to unfamiliar faces, finding out where everything is, making new friends. But we are starting to get used to the new routine and I am so proud of how well he is adjusting to the changes!
We have had some surprisingly hot days, soaking up some much needed sunshine, eating Italian ice cream after a long day of water sun and fun!

Meanwhile I have been making slow progress on my Hexy MF quilt

Hexy MF

Sewing the rows together is taking forever but I do like where this quilt is headed! I haven't decided on a background fabric yet, I think I might go for some lovely yard died Essex linen... But I'd love some suggestions if you have any!

Yesterday I received some very exciting mail from Liberty Lifestyle, my heart skipped a little happy beat unwrapping these beauties.

I can not bear to cut into my precious stack of Bloomsbury Gardens just yet, for now I am quite satisfied with folding and admiring. :)

Have a great weekend!
