Trying to beat the clock.......

I have been a bit quiet trying to get everything done before going off to my mum's for her birthday...

This photo has nothing to do with it - apart maybe that these two boats seem to be racing each other against the clock?? - but I hate a post without photos so at least you have something pretty to look at !

What has happened today just when I needed to pack and finish off the quilt? A crown falls out... I phone the dentist, who says it cannot wait till next week, so spent the day getting that seen to.

Result: Crown is happy, I am knackered and nothing has been done yet... no packing, no quilt finishing, no shopping, no clearing, no cleaning... nothing....

The quilt luckily is nearly done (Yoeheeee!!!) and just the label to do. Not had the time yet to photograph it (besides which, it's dinner time and very dark here now).

Plan is to try and print the label (first time I am trying this), pack the bags, not forget any necessary documentation (passport, eticket.....) or to take the tennisballs out of my jacket pocket to leave home for the dog (both very important!). Oh, and manage to have a teeny weeny bit of sleep too....

Whilst away I won't have access to the internet but when I come back I hope to catch up on all I have missed and will have lots to tell you!

There will be the final update on the quilt... and (I am so excited...) I have won in some giveaways at last!!! (only after about 2500 tries....) and of course I will be back from my trip.

Also.... NEARLY AT MY 100TH POST !!!! So exciting. I will be having a little giveaway of my own then. I'll give you a little spoiler.... it will involve a little work for you, giving me an idea of where you live...(for extra entries) So if you want to start taking some fotos of the local area you will have a headstart!

Best go and start to pack.... that suitcase will not do it by itself!!

See you all next week!

Have a wonderful trip and say HELLO! to your sweet mum! I can't wait to see the quilt and I hope we get to see her with it.

If you should happen to win my giveaway, I'll be happy to hold it for you, thanks for letting me know you'll be gone.

Try to get some rest! Don't overdo yourself!

I just came across you blog and wanted to say I love it. I also love quilting and sailing/boating. I just confess we were originally sailors, but ended up power boating several years ago. ...best trip was taking our boat to SE Alaska for the summer. I enjoy handpiecing which works perfectly on our boat, but I also enjoy all forms of quilting.
