Now it is no secret that I can not go into Wisbech without popping into Button Up & Stitch, and here you can see why.
Three lovely people, three generations with a wealth of knowledge.
She doesn't know yet but the one in the middle will be showing me how to crochet if I get into a muddle.
I am booked in for a lesson on foundation paper piecing, I have read tutorials and watched some on you tube but decided to go to the oracle, it is an afternoon out and I thoroughly enjoyed the last 2 that I went to.
Dig those fancy aprons, a pocket for everything, I am going to make one with 2 deep pockets to hold pegs, I hate fishing around in my peg bag, it always slides away just when I need it.
Enjoy this peak at the goodies, it will no longer be there, they are moving, YIPPEE!!
No I have not gone doolally, they are moving next door into bigger premises.
Rats, I have just spotted the Russian Doll print, I may have to call and reserve some.
I did buy some fabric, I will share later, what I am excited about is the iron on wadding that they stock. I read about it on a blog recently and am chuffed to bits that it is readily available. It is a little pricey but no more crawling around pinning what seems like acres of quilt and no more spray cans. I bought enough to do a small quilt and if I get on with it I will be buying a roll.
Dinner tonight will either be soup, I want to use up some veg, or an omelette. I intend to spend the rest of the day in the garden, once I have finished I will not want to cook. The soup will be done in the pressure cooker and will not take much longer than an omelette.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. Rain overnight has cleared and the sun is shining bright.
2. My sewing table is clear all but a heap of 1 1/2" strips that I am sorting out for the next quilt to donate.
3. I have some pretty fabrics to drool over.
4. I have pulled fabric for another project and it is cut and boxed ready to go.
5. I am infection free.
Part of my 52 week challenge is to be better organised, as I get near to the finish of a sewing project I start to fret. What shall I make, do I have what I need, and so on. So my ongoing goal is to have something planned, cut and ready in a Ziploc bag or plastic box ready to pick up and start sewing. My only concern is that I do not build a mountain of these, it would be so easy a trap to fall into.
Oh and my test results came back clear, so goodness knows what all that Lab test business was about. But I am drinking Cranberry Juice every day.
It is now 12.20 and time I had a brew and got my btm outside.
I hope you all have as good a day as I am.
