Sunshine and crafting

It was a lovely day here today with even the sun trying to make an appearance for a good part of the day. My little man and i had a good morning cruising round the house completing our usual cleaning routine with some breaks for books and playing along the way. We recently cleaned out our conservatory and now have the perfect sheltered sunny spot to read books and play during these cold winter days.
Once the work was done it was off to share lunch with a friend and her little girl and let the kids play the day away.
Isn't it great when a day comes together and you get a chance to really catch up with a friend you haven't seen in a while and just take a breath and relax. It was very much needed. So after my good day and a VERY rare late afternoon nap i was ready to do a bit of crafting tonight.
For those who have been reading for awhile you will know i've been working on a block of the month quilt project - Chestnut and Vines. The last month's package was sitting waiting for me when i got back from holiday so i spent tonight cutting up the fabric ready for finishing.

It's always exciting being this close to finishing off a big project. During the cutting i realised i seem to be slightly short of one fabric which bought the nights work to an early end. I can't say i'm sad to have to take a trip to the quilting shop though! While i'm there i can pick out some backing fabric. Check out the samples they sent me to choose from, aren't they lovely? I'm leaning towards the chocolate vine pattern, so luscious!
Not long now till i can reveal the finished quilt top, watch this space!
Have a great weekend everyone.
