Anyhow I am still popping the fat pink pills and so far (touch wood, turn round thrice and spit) they are doing the trick, all being well I will be off to Neath later on. Shaw,s the drapers have a branch there and I want to have a look at their DK cotton yarn.
I had a productive day yesterday, no good slummocking around feeling sorry for myself, that butters no parsnips. Strange saying!
I am glad of it as abandoning the mental arithmetic I found a calculator and I need 378 pairs of charm squares for the 2 quilts.
I have this many done, each little stack has 10 pairs so I have 210 pairs. Over half way so not too shabby. I decided not to press them open until I have the full amount, it is easier to keep count that way and they take up much less space.
These are my remaining charms, no where near enough. But, I have pulled a few more fabric from the stash, they have been freshly pressed and will be cut later today.
6 more warm colours, for now, once I have cut these I will pair them with my remaining cool charms and when they run out I will cut these, plus a few more that I dug out a little while ago.
I pulled these 3, yesterday afternoon, and got them pressed ready to cut but decided that enough was enough and retired to the sofa and my granny squares.
I finished off the 4 remaining lilac and made a good start on a glorious red, Lipstick, 5 of those are done and I will do the other 8 tonight. I sat and watched the first few episodes of season 5 of Haven. When it was on the first time I managed to miss it, possibly work got in the way. It is quite silly but as chewing gum for the brain it works for me.
My Banana plant has opened another new leaf, at this rate it will have to stand on the floor by this time next year. The growth rate has slowed down a little, possibly due to light levels and shorter days. The orchid that it stands next to is thriving, I think they are in a symbiotic relationship, the Banana insists on draping a leaf over the orchids stem.
Now it is high time that the kettle went on for my second cuppa, I seem to be lagging somewhat this morning.
