Getting a little extra done

The mister came home unexpectedly one morning to fetch his golfing gear.  He had an invite to play in a charity golf day with snoek (fish) barbecue and wine tasting afterwards.  Even I would consider playing golf with that promise. In my life however, this meant..... no cooking!  O I do dislike the kitchen, no wait; I have a pretty kitchen, so I dislike cooking!  Whenever I don't have to cook it is as if the day just has so many more hours..... to quilt!

It turned out exactly what I did.  Usually I hardly ever quilt in the morning as the household routine takes up all my daytime hours.  So I only quilt late afternoon or in the evening.  I had a couple of errands to run but suddenly none of these seemed all that important anymore so they were simply moved to another day.

Before I had to take the parrot to bed for her afternoon nap I had half my Twisted Log Cabin done.  I didn't do quite as well the later afternoon as there was one mean game of tennis between Nadal and Verdasco going and I had a hard time tearing myself away from the television.

I only had a tiny section and the border to do when the mister finally got home with these goodies.  Now who wouldn't mind a day off with this as a reward?
