Hello there and welcome to a Bank Holiday edition of #PoCoLo - this week the linky will stay open for an extra day, closing at 11pm on on Monday so there's a little bit more time to link up, as I'm sure you've got plans. I'm hoping for some sun, but well, it is Bank Holiday after all...
If you were here last week it was great to see you, if you're new here this week *hello* and welcome to our weekly linky. Once again I'm joined by Suzanne from Chicken Ruby who's co-hosting with me while Morgan is on her holidays, so do please also pop over there to say hello.
We spent last weekend in Norfolk and after the quilting magic that mum told me about a couple of weeks ago I duly took my 2.5" strips with me aiming to cut them into 2.5" squares, all thirty three materials. And I did, you might have seen that in my post from Monday, and later this week my very own piece of square perspex magic arrived in the post from mum. I'll need this for cutting out the background squares, so now I'm all set.
It's been a week of long work days and I'm starting to feel like I'm making progress, but I also know that I promised to be kind to myself this year and I need to practice that more again especially when it comes to leaving work. Once again I'm toying with the idea of going swimming, which is a bit weird as I'm not really a swimmer, but I do have a new swimming costume that wouldn't show me up. I probably should sort out some kind of goggles though as contact lenses and swimming pools don't mix do they?
You might have already realised but I'm looking forward to the Bank Holiday and an extra day off, though of course we've jam-packed our weekend as usual with a visit to family, drinks with friends, plenty of gardening and if we're lucky with the weather a picnic in Greenwich Park listening to a jazz band, what are your plans?
