Work was easy enough last night and I had slept for 6 hours so was refreshed and raring to go.
So much so that we finished early and I left at 3.30 and was home by 3.45.
I made the binding for Fran's Jelly Roll Jam Quilt, which I had quilted the day before, just a simple Serpentine up and down. The batting that i use really clings onto fabric so close quilting is not needed, giving a really soft, snuggly feel.
Here it is rolled up and ready to go through Toya.
Binding by the yard, I like this print, it frames the quilt but does not overpower, I bought quite a lot just for this purpose.
Quilt trimmed and binding pressed ready for tomorrow, then once finished it will be packed away ready to move to London.
I was hoping to do some sewing today but ran out of time. because it was a sunny day I scraped a load of laundry together and once that was on the line I wrote my shopping list.
I put it nice and handy on Toya and that is where it stayed. Off I went to visit Mr S and handed over £123 plus change!!!
That sounds a great deal of money but it is dry goods, dog food, ketchups, pepper sauces, mustards, and so on for around 2 months. I found some tins of chopped tomatoes in the Ethnic section for 25p so stocked well up, a 5 Kg bag of Basmati rice for £6, some intriguing beetroot horseradish and 2 tins of chick peas for 25p. I do use dried but it is handy to have a tin for a fast meal.
I did venture down the meat section and 6 packs of cooking bacon jumped into my trolley, several weeks worth of meals.
I did buy some new slippers and 6 pairs of socks too.
I still have plenty of meat in the freezer and some fish, all I will need to buy weekly is perishables. Next time I am in Wisbech I will stock up on flour from either Aldi or Asda as their prices are the best.
I have missed out my reasons to be grateful for the last 2 posts, rush, hurry, rush rush. There are many reasons in my life to be grateful for and the main one is my health.
during the week I went to Sutton to change my library books, I popped into the Co op to get milk and stood in the basket queue behind someone a few years younger than me but looking at least 10 older. He was buying cigarettes, scratch cards and lottery tickets, he joked about how he would spend his winnings.
I could only think how I would far rather be healthy than rich. I do not long to be rich but I yearn to stay healthy.
I read frugal Queen,s blog about her journey to fitness this year and her plans to continue next year. She has got it so right.
Any how I have to go now and get dinner on the way, I will have a ravenous Francesca home soon. TTFN Pam
