there's nothing quite like it for having some fun.
Yes I know that if you are working then it is not fun at all, remember though that I worked for many years in Kitchens, from tiny cafe's to industrial factory set ups and they are all HOT. Still I Love the sun and the heat. I was in the garden early, lots of watering, tweaking weeds out, pots moving and some potting on. 2 loads of washing out by 10:00 and then I walked to the library. I did slather on the sunscreen, slip on a hat and slap my sunnies on my face.
There is a fund raising sale next month, I took 3 bags of hardback books down last week. Today I rootled through my stock of finished goods and fished out some tote bags. They will sell them off as book bags, it all helps with the little extras that our library supplies, free photocopying for black and white and a small charge for colour. Biscuits and a cold drink for the children at story telling time, and if you get there for 10:50 you can join in with the elevenses. They make a good cuppa.
Yesterday we had a few minutes of excitement, the police had several vehicles through the village, lights flashing and the odd toot of a siren for the idiot motorists that ignored them. This is what it was all about.
I had to close my eyes when it squeezed through, I could not have put my hand between those huge tyres and the parked cars.
Once the excitement was over I cracked on with pin basting Kaitlyns quilt.
When I returned from the library this morning I got it on the sewing table and have made a good start, I may get the quilting finished tonight. I have not thought about the binding yet but would like to get it made and machined onto the front tomorrow. I have a few things on the sky box that I want to watch and I would like some stitching in my hands.
I am just doing a simple cross hatch, it is all about the fabric. There are lots of things for Kaitlyn to "spy" in there, several different birds, hearts, flowers, mittens, cats, stars and so on.
Now I think that it is cool enough for a cuppa.
Many thanks for the recipe help, I will be trying some gluten free baking at the weekend.
