Spain! I'm gonna live forever...

...was the song we sang on the plane. It seemed appropriate, given that we were gonna fly: HIGH! Plus we were very excited. However, getting up at 5:00 am to walk to the tube station, catch the tube, then a coach to the airport, followed by the flight started to tire us just a bit. I tiny bit. But then came an hour's metro across Madrid and a 5 hour coach journey to Granada and we were a little bit stir-crazy. So when we stopped at a cafe half way between Madrid and Granada, we were ready to stretch our legs and, in my case, take a photo! I made Ruth sit on the floor of the car park and then self-timed this shot, camera on the gravel, of us on the road. Quite literally. Much Ruth's alarm as cars went past. She still hasn't recovered from the New York incident(s). But that's another story.

This is the first time I've tried paper piecing on a page and I really enjoyed it! I love using coordinated papers from a kit and I'd been totally inspired by Geralyn's layouts and decided to give it go. It's my new favourite thing!

Crazy busy at the moment: an awards evening and a parents evening at school this week, Guides events in the pipeline and generally diminishing scrap time. So I am going to reclaim an hour tonight to watch that documentary about the English National Ballet and play with my stash. In bed. With a hot water bottle and two cups of tea. Bliss!
