Last year for his birthday DH was given a gift voucher for a glider flight, and yesterday, after months of waiting and planning for the perfect flying conditions, he took his flight. I've got to admit it was the most beautiful day, just perfect for gliding and he spent a fabulous hour up in the air on the Kapiti Coast. This really is him getting into the front seat of the glider!

I got to stay firmly on the ground (thank goodness - see how close to the front of the plane the front seat is) from where I could study not just the gliders but also a large flock of ducks taking advantage of the great soaring conditions. It got me thinking about some of those quilt blocks with fabulous names like Birds in the Air and Flock of Birds, so tonight after work I put together one of these blocks.

Now if I just make another 3 blocks, I will have the centre of a cushion cover for one of the large cushions on our bed AND I will work my way through a little bit more of the deep red-maroon stash, more particularly those extra squares that I overcalculated when cutting the last project.
