Claire, Laura, Adam and I went to Hyde Park in London last Sunday to watch daughter #1 compete in the Age Group World Triathlon championships. We saw Jillian’s group jump in and swim around the Serpentine, then we walked over and cheered heartily for her on the bike ride. Next we caught her twice on the run and heaved a great sigh of relief, for her sake, as she crossed the finish line. I don’t think she got the result she wanted, but she finished the distance and that, in itself, is amazing!
I had a sewing marathon and finished the following four quilt tops this week. Some of these have been sitting around for two years – which is probably how long it will take for me to get them quilted. At least I now have a sense of closure!
Provencal Therapy reborn (based on a Kim Diehl pattern)
Diane’s Garden with button-hole applique (Details by Diane pattern)
Japanese Elegance with Sashiko (Seattle Quilt Company class)
Glacier (Lisa Moore pattern) – started on the day when we should have been in Rome for Christmas but, fittingly, there was too much snow at Heathrow so our flight was cancelled.
