B U T
I have heard the siren call of the sewing room all that time.
My scrap bag has been partially emptied, lots of pressing had happened and this afternoon I started sewing. Now there is more pressing to do but it will have to wait.
I unearthed some orphan blocks, some playtime blocks and a disaster or three. Then picked a handful of strips and started piecing.
Leftover string blocks in the middle here.
Oh the shame of it, look no points.
Some Cathedral windows from a Missouri Quilt Co tutorial.
A myriad of strippy bits, some complete with selvedge edges, from a Trip Around The World quilt.
I have a trip into Ystalavera this evening and I am hoping to squeeze a walk with Ben in there somewhere.
Yesterday was glorious, I emptied the laundry bin and it was all dried, ironed and put away by 8.00 last night. BLISS.
Today has been even better and I had to slather on the factor 50 and dig a hat out.
I would rather be "Pale and interesting" than a bit of old leather.
Salad for dinner, with a tub of mixed olives and feta that I picked up in Tesco for 30p, reduced from £3!! I ask you it only weighs 160 grams including the plastic pot.
I weighed myself this morning, horror but no shock there. I am still overweight but seem as fit as a fiddle so decided to stop thinking about it.
Looking back this post is almost as scrappy as my sewing, hey ho, I am so pleased that my English teacher is no longer able to make me squirm with one look.
I do owe her though, I practised that look and it has quelled many a quarrelsome person over the years.
