They really enjoyed scampering along the sand although they did get a bit of a shock when they stopped to have a drink in a seawater puddle! We all had a great time too and a lunch of fish and chips!!
Later in the evening I discovered that a bonus block called 'Just for you' had been released by Pat Sloan for the Splendid Sampler to celebrate National Quilt Day. It was nice after a busy day to prepare this simple applique block and then finish off the edges with some hand stitching.
On Sunday, block eleven of the Splendid Sampler was released. This block was designed by Alyssa Thomas and is called 'Crocheted Thoughts'.
It is a pretty combination of piecing and embroidery and I really enjoyed stitching it.
Looking forward to the next block..... and on catching up with some of the weekend blog posts that I missed...... have a lovely week!
