I have 2 more colours to add to the granny pile,
3 more of the lilac, it is a bit pinker in real life, needed I will do those later.
I have been sewing up a storm, these charms have been segregated into warm and cool, I need around 300 of each.
I have started to sew into pairs, then they will become 4 patches and so on.
I have 50. only another 250 to go. They are destined to become quilts for 2 sisters, they need to be similar but not identical. The main difference will be the binding and backing, I hope that will be enough to escape any sibling rivalry. The girls may be adults but grown up they are not.
This single quilt top will be on the frame later, I had hoped to do it today, fingers crossed for tomorrow. It will be a fast job as it is only 50" by 72".
This top you have seen before, it now has a wide border, bringing it to 84" by 96", it too will hopefully be basted before the week is out. I will pin baste on the frame and as it is Beast #2 I will quilt it on the Horn cabinet.
My shoulder and neck flare up went as fast as it came, that heated shawl thingy is fabulous, but my driving on Saturday left me with a full on Sciatica flare up that evening.
Real tears were shed, in copious amounts, I began to worry about the risk of flooding.
My heavy duty meds were duly choked down, I hate taking pills, and as usual I was comatose within an hour. I slept like the dead for 12 hours and took a less powerful version on Sunday, more tears but not as many and for less time. Today I am just taking Ibuprofen 400 mg and keeping my (metaphorical) fingers crossed that they will suffice.
I am so pleased that I record Strictly, I am rooting for Carol but I fear she will not last the course. One or two of the "Non Dancers" are very very talented, almost beyond a professional level.
I managed to watch The Doctor, also recorded, now it may be that my drug fuelled mind was as fault but I found it pedestrian and very weak. I am not a Peter Capaldi fan but was quite getting used to him being different to the last few, dare I say Dishy Doctors. Now I am back on the fence again.
I am off to count charm squares, I am so thankful that a while ago I was driven to cut through a chunk of the stash. Most of which was converted to charms.
