Sewing, 5K and back on the road again!!

Good Morning!

All seems to be getting back to normal here now, thank goodness! We now have a new car so fingers crossed that no one decided to try and 'hitch a ride on the back of our car with theirs!!' 

First off I have to 'brag' about Mark and Katie!!  They did a 5K run/walk with the school a few weekends ago!!  They are so pleased with themselves!  It was totally pouring down with rain too!  They were totally drenched.  Shoes took days to dry out lol I am so proud of them!  Since I could not take part after the accident, one of their school assistants said he would take them with him and his dog!  They were leaving last to make sure all the participants had not got lost or fallen ill during the run/walk!!  Mark and Katie didn't mind knowing they were going to be in last as they really wanted to do the run/walk!  It was a fun run/walk so what did it matter!!  They really had a great time walking the dog too! 

Katie coming 'home'

Mark and Ellie the dog coming 'home'

They did it in an hour and 10 mins as they 'went out'
about 20 mins after everyone else
As you can see they are very wet looking lol!!

Still suffering the effects of the whip lash and cant sit and sew for long like I used too but I am sure things will get better in time! 

I spent a few days making this Jelly Roll quilt!  I am delighted with it.  I didn't have one solid piece large enough for the back so I made my own!!

This weekend we have declared a SAS weekend ... Sit And Sew!!  Lets hope that all goes to plan haha  I hope SEW!!  lol

Bye for now

  1. Whiplash is tough. Lots of ice helped me at first. Good luck and lovely quilt!

  2. That quilt is soooo beautiful. I'm sorry about your whiplash though. Hope you are feeling better soon!

  3. Well done your children, not just the walk but wanting to do it and poor loves getting so wet. And that jelly roll quilt is super I love the colours. Glad you are recovering from the car accident. That happened to me years ago and my car was a right off too, I was most upset and then a few months later I saw it... grrr I loved that Saab!
