So I did a rough bit of measuring and got this.
I used some scraps of wadding and a piece of creamy yellow material left over from a commissioned quilt, so all free.
Not forgetting the side view.
All fine and dandy but what about the inside.
Yeugh, raw edges no no no. All that fluff clogging up the works.
Much better, neat and tidy, no raw edges and no fluff.
A trim little bottom, well we all want one of those.
I did not make a gap for the carry handle to pop through, I do not want anywhere for the dust to get in, if I need to move her around I just lift her up from the bottom.
I am undecided as to whether to make a pocket and attach to hold the foot pedal and plug, or whether to make a little bag to do the job. I will think about it...............................OK I have thunk and a pocket it will be, that way they will stay together, I will put a fastener on the pocket to keep it closed. Tomorrows job I feel.Tonight's dinner is a mish mash, I want to include lots of veg, I will steam them. I have chicken left over from Sunday,
I forgot to tell you, I went to Asda on Sunday morning with Francesca and they had Banham Poultry chickens. I know the company and their produce is really good, I found a 1.5Kg bird for the princely sum of £2.30 it was yellow stickered of course. It was succulent and tasty, very very tasty.....sorry I couldn't resist.
BTW no one asked me to sing Banham Poultry's praises, I have always bought their chicken when I see it. I used to work in the chicken industry. Nuff said.
Any way back to tonight, I rootled through the freezer and found some smoked duck and some garlic sausage, extra strong of course, and in the fridge I have some Chorizo. So it will be cold meats and steamed veg drizzled with garlic sauce, I also have some smoked garlic puree in the fridge and I will put a good squeeze of lemon juice in to give it a lift.
Reasons to be grateful
1. A cooler day so I can get some chores done without melting.
2. Seeing the little Terrier from 3 doors down chasing his tail in excitement while his owner tried to get a lead on him.
3. The butterflies smothering one of my elder trees.
4. The big patch of wild poppies that brighten the footpath where I walk Ben.
5. Just being here, now and happy with my lot.
BTW no. 5 does not apply every day, if it did it would be unreal. I believe that we all have off days and bad hair days, some more than others. My way of pushing through is to either take Ben for a good ramble, do some creative sewing or immerse myself in a book with radio 2 playing in the background.
Now I have to get a shopping list together, Mr T has sent me a voucher for £12 off a £60 pound shop. He will be delivering a stock up shop of all the heavy and bulky things like tins of beans and tomatoes and loo rolls and kitchen rolls, I will stock up on flour as well and that will save me a journey and stop my arms from being wrenched out of their sockets hauling a massive trolley round the shop. Not to mention lifting it on and off the belt and then out of the trolley into the car and then out of the car into the house. Whew I feel a lie down coming on to get over all that hard work. TTFN Pam
