Let's sit and have a cup of coffee

It's the 27th again and time to sit down, relax and have a well deserved cup of coffee.
 

Boy it's been busy at work, but I would explain how relieved I am to have an 'inset' day today and not  have to go into work. I would tell you how I have taken on some new jobs in the office, one of which is helping with admissions. It was our Open Evening last night and I suspect that when I go in on Monday it will be crazily busy. We're the only single-sex school in our area so we are greatly oversubscribed each year. 160 places and regularly over 300 applicants.
The cake I made for when Jon came home last weekend has long gone, but I've some rather nice biscuits here, please have a couple, I need to step away from their temptation. I'm still aching a little from the Fitsteps exercise class I took last night, but it is a fun way to keep fit.  It's designed by one of the Strictly Come Dancing professionals and I would ask if you were a fan of the programme. It starts this weekend and I can't wait!
Talking of TV I would ask if you were watching the Great British Bake Off. I love it but can't decide still who I want to win.
We would probably notice that Coco has made herself comfortable on the new quilt and I would tell you how excited I am to be part of Fiona's friendship quilt team. I can't wait to get started. Plus my niece has asked me to make her two children patchwork floor cushions for their Christmas presents. My sewing machine hasn't seen so much action in years!
Where has the time gone? It's been great to catch up with all the news and I guess that now you will be heading off to Abi's to see who else is joining in.
Thanks for visiting!

Oh yes on both strictly and bake off (I'm liking Glen for his cheerfulness) and I love your jigsaw piece coaster in the photo

Not into Strictly, but I'm really enjoying Bake Off this year. I'm hinting for a sewing machine for my birthday so I'd ask if you had any advice

I love strictly and bake off and I got a sewing machine for my birthday this year!

Coffee in a Bridgewater mug? Now you're talking! That's my choice round here too and I'd love to share one with you. Love Strictly and have finally got into Bakeoff, thanks to a cookery obsessed daughter who loves to conjure up a bun or two

You know what the coolest part of this post is for me? Recognizing that space in your conservatory and that puzzle piece coaster that I've actually seen in real life! :o)

I'm excited about Fiona's friendship quilt project too, and happy to hear that you are enjoying time with your sewing machine! It's just the best!

I love the Great British Bake Off, like you I'm not sure who I would like to see win. Some nice characters among them, especially Glen, he's very likable.
It's good to hear the quilting has taken off so. Have fun with it!

Thank you for joining me for tea! That biscuit was yummy! I love the Great British Bake off. I like Kimberley's smile and Glen makes me laugh as did Howard so I am sad that he has now gone! I also meant to say that I love what you have been creating quilting wise recently. Beautiful designs have appeared on IG. Are you working from a tutorial or making it up as you go? x

So nice to meet you and hear what you've been up to in September! I'm looking forward to joining you again next month.

Having never seen either of those shows I cannot comment on them but your quilt is lovely and I look forward to seeing the Friendship one.
