We were all together on Sunday, which just happened to be my birthday, so parcels were opened and fizzy stuff drunk. I had some very nice twinkly things and a collection of my favourite perfumes, amongst lots of other treats. As I had been whinging on for weeks, Mr T came up with a very nice new camera. ( just got to learn what all the bells and whistles are for)
We spent the morning in Maldon, which is a very pretty town on the Blackwater estuary, and walked along the Hythe promenade, watched the model boats and a very nice young gentleman rescuing a football from the muddy riverbank for two little ones.
and played with my very nice new camera
The weather was kind to us until Thursday, when it decided to rain. All day. ALL day. But we still made a trip to Tiptree to see where the jam was made and to make a couple of purchases.
Mr T and I headed home and after a flurry of unpacking and washing and a bit of pantry replenishing and we are back to normal in the house. I spent those extra couple of hours trying to keep up with miss speedy pants and finishing off my Sew Mama Sew Mini Medallion Quilt Along .

Well, when I say finishing of, I mean the piecing. I still have to layer and quilt it, but that will be for another day. I have cut out another colour-way and will be interested to see how that one turns out, but I am on a mission to complete one before I start another!
I have seen some rather nice miniature patterns here and I may have made a small purchase.....
There is still time for you to join in the Mini Medallion fun. You can add your photos at
(hash-tag)minimedallion on Instagram. As you can see I can't even find the hash tag symbol on my keyboard, so it could be a while before I get my photos (taken on my very nice new camera- did I mention that?) posted!
