I finished my clam shell mini quilt this week. I hand quilted around each of the clams with a little orange thread.

It is a bit hard to see on the front but you can see it on the back.

It is now happily hanging in my sewing space making me smile.

Really Random Thursday

It has been a really random couple of weeks. There have been trips away, mud, puddles and aardvarks. Here is a little selection.

- If kids have not seen mud for six months you can pretty much guarantee they will find the smallest patch and make the biggest mess.

- The same is true of puddles.

-  Dusseldorf airport has the biggest giraffe in the world in its Atrium.  How on earth did they get it in there?

- If you are going on a bug hunt you need to wear a bunny mask/ladybird costume/hat and toilet roll telescope. It is to make sure the bugs don't recognise you, obviously!

- Aardvarks are really big and they have tails like giant rats. We saw them at Arnhem zoo. I was astounded, so astounded I forgot to take a photo!

Fresh Sewing Day

I hope you all had a Happy Easter. Ours was nice and relaxed. We even have some chocolate left!

March was a bit of a slow month but I managed a few bits and bobs.

Here is to a productive April!
