Took Carli’s package down to our village post office – it was closed. Drove to the next village, whose post office was also closed. Listened to the radio: all post offices in Bouches-du-Rhône are on strike. Sigh, of course they are. This morning I trekked over to the next department and finally sent off Carli’s canvas. Bon voyage!
Cracked and visited neighbouring town’s bakery after my failed posting attempt. Why does this feel like confessing to an infidelity? Who could resist this Cranberry and Almond bread loaf? Tasted good on its own, even better toasted with butter.
Realised my ‘followers’ had passed the 100 mark! Hello everybodeeeeeee! *Grover wave* I need to sort out my side bars and put up some links and follow back (I always forget to ‘follow’ as I use the Google Blog Reader).
Enjoyed some play time.
The toddler, at 16 months, finally decided to toddle.
He can get into twice as much trouble now.
Freaked out a bit about all the unfinished projects I really need to finish, so I poured a cuppa, wrote a list and got a grip on myself.
Received the most awesome, generous package which has me chomping at the bit to start new projects like this:
Received a lovely award from the even lovelier Diana over at Sticks and Bubbles. Thank you Diana!
Diana has a fabulous eye for colour and makes the most amazing fabric matches. Like this, or this, or how about this. And this is just soooooo nice. One inspiring lady. Plus she blogs in English even though she’s Romanian, which is bloody hard work.
Cut a bunch of half-square triangle blocks.
Finally finished the hand binding on the minky baby quilt.
And saving the most exciting ’til last (no offence Carli and Diana ;):
Found out our first routine ultrasound scan was normal and that baby number four (eeeek!) is doing well and due mid July. A French summer baby? Mais oui, merci!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
