Jolly holidays!

Not much crafty stuff has been going on this week apart from i have managed to get the next block done for The Around The World Quilting Bee.

The thing i am loving the most about doing this is the challenge of making blocks of different styles and colours to blocks i would usually make, and i can try something out without having to commit to a whole quilt. I loved making this one (although in fairness i think I've said that about all of them).

Tomorrow I AM GOING ON HOLIDAY (not that I am excited or anything…) We are going to Thailand for 2 weeks and while we are away we celebrate out 7th wedding anniversary.

We met on the Internet in the summer of 2000 and I was in the UK and Curly Boy was in Chicago. We had our first proper date in the summer 2001 in Chicago. He arrived in the UK for good on 1st April 2002 and we married in June of the same year. Neither of us can quite believe just how quick the last 7 years have whizzed by!

We are spending our anniversary in Thailand at the hotel where we stayed for our 1st anniversary (the sister hotel of the hotel we spent our honeymoon at).
The hotel is in the style that Thais do so well - rustic and understated elegance. This time we have splurged and are staying in one of the pool villas.

I have a couple of craft projects packed so looking forward to 2 weeks of eating, sleeping, sunbathing and sewing - all in rotation!

I may drop in and say hello while I'm there but it depends whether i can peel myself off the sun lounger, or whether i can moderate my pina colada consumption enough to be able to type a coherent post. If neither of those things are possible, I'll see you when i get back!!


  1. Have a fantastic time. I love the story of how you met, it is so romantic. Enjoy the tropical sun.

  2. What a wonderful story of how you two met...have a wonderful time in your blocks!

  3. What a neat story! Have a great vacation!

  4. Curly Boy's Mum is wishing you the most wonderful Holiday & anniversary.
