I got a Valentine card from my sponsored dog, Bobby Blue. It is a bit of nonsense but a way of keeping me up to date. I choose to sponsor a "special needs" dog and therefore I can not go and visit him, I can see him from a distance but he is too nervous for close contact.
I made a quick trip to the library and grabbed a few books, I was in a hurry so was lucky to find 2 more Baldicci books. He is a new author to me and I am enjoying him.
Two of them are "chewing gum for the brain" and I picked up the self sufficiency guide out of curiosity, I can not think that Seymore left anything unsaid.
I have sort of finished the 9 patch quilt top, it was finished till I decided to add 3 rows to make it bigger.
It will not take me long as I have several 9 patches ready made and a stack of part made blocks, I sew these as leaders and enders and they grow at an alarming rate.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. We may have wind and rain, but no damage or flooding.
2. Ben and Greg have had their walks, mostly dry, every day.
3. I am busy crocheting squares, each one is quicker and easier than the one before.
4. I have enough wool for the weekend.
5. The refrigeration equipment was moved into the village shop today. one step nearer to opening.
I have sewn 4 quilt tops from my stash, mostly from scraps, and there is still a small mountain to sew through. I have lots of large pieces to make backs from and just about enough batting. I quite fancy backing at least 1 with fleece fabric, I will have to buy that but I do have a couple of vouchers that can be used.
I plan on having a crafty weekend, the shopping is done, there are fakeaway meals in the freezer and I only need to go out to dog walk. The laundry is up to date and the ironing basket is empty. If I get sewn and hooked out I have my new books and I have several things on the sky box. Oh and the most important thing, I have plenty of tea.
I intend to do a good bit of blog reading this evening and make an inroad into the tea supplies.
Have a good weekend everyone, keep warm and dry if you can.
My thoughts will be with those who can not relax in their homes because of the weather.
