sun, glorious sun




Yesterday's solar eclipse was only partial and brief in our part of the world, but still very exciting experience. 
After the sun stopped hiding behind the moon, it gave us a wonderful warm spring day. 
We even managed to have our lunch outside on the garden bench.
 Bliss!









Issue 12 of  the Vignette magazine arrived yesterday, at last! 
It has been long time in coming, which made me wonder if we'll ever see it. 
But it is here, with instructions for block 3 of "Mrs Beasley's Sample Quilt".
 So out came my project box, with the first 2 blocks. 
For some reason this quilt always makes me think of summer, may be because last time I saw it was last summer, when I stitched the first 2 blocks.






































But as you can see from the pictures, the embroidery is still yet to be done.
I look forward to stitching it outside in the garden, so it might still have to wait little longer.

  4. Interesting work, Radka, never mind that it takes long. Good things take lontime. I was with my patchwork friends during the solar eclipse - we watched it at TV - not very ingenious - but better than not at all.
