Phew, what a week!  You would have thought that 5 days of work would have meant relaxation (stop sniggering at the back there!), but then last Monday, or thereabouts, it suddenly seemed a good idea to paint and tile the kitchen.  Because it had been 13 years since it was painted, and it needed the tiled backsplash back then too…  So yeah, that’s been my biggest WIP for the week.  The walls are painted, the ceiling is painted, and the wall behind the cooker is tiled about 1/3 of the way up.  I just need to get solvent to clean the excess grout off the tiles and we’re all done, but that can wait a day or two yet, my shoulders are still recovering from round 1!

I did get some sewing done, my UK Mini Swap mini is all quilted and trimmed, I just need to add the binding, and I did a little secret sewing too.  I’m now sitting waiting for the postie to deliver fabric for my next Quilt Now project, I have the idea, I just want to get making…  In the meantime I’m writing up the Rainy Days & Mondays pattern, and I even got out for an hour or so in the sun on Sunday for a cover photo shoot.

In Progress This Week:

This is now quilted, but I’d like to save its full reveal until it goes out to its new owner:

This is almost all done, but I can’t show you any more than the diagram ‘cos it’s a secret:
