The decision was made to cap the wooden edging in the front garden, the wood was duly stained but I could not find the long panel pins. A side trip to B & Q today while I was in Neath has solved the issue. Strangely I did not promptly find the ones I was convinced that I had when I returned home.
It will have to wait until tomorrow, it has been raining quite heavily here all day.
I watched a bit of Sunday Brunch yesterday, the telly just happened to be on that channel. Simon Rimmer was making a super duper lasagne, a layer of macaroni cheese, then one of meat sauce, another of macaroni cheese, a few dollops of Mozzarella then a topping of breadcrumbs and grated parmesan with some butter rubbed in. Not a calorie in sight.
It looked very good so I made one for tonight.
I wish you could smell this, it is gorgeous, and it tasted even better.
Not a dish to make weekly but every now and then for a treat.
While I was in the mood to play I remembered that I had a tutorial from The Missouri Star Quilt Co to watch. A simple way to make the Cathedral Window block.
I watched and I did look simple, none of the pressing, folding and more pressing and folding. Just a stack of charm squares, and a little pressing.
Well I made a version of the one that Jenny made but I am not over pleased with it. I used my normal 1/4" seam and it is too small. The points are too far apart and the thick layers at the seams made sewing and pressing difficult. I will be making it again but will use a wider seam and will tack the middle seams to hold the layers together before machining.
I used my happy red and white polka dots and managed to get a crease in that, DUH.
I will be stitching the binding down later, I have no idea what I will do with it. I made it on a whim, just because.
If anyone would like it for a table topper drop me a comment, it would be fine with a bowl of fruit or a vase of flowers or a plant on it.
It measures 25 1/2" by 18".
Now the washing up is calling and Ben would rather like another walk.
