My day started well with lots of sun shine and blue skies.
Then had lots of this. :-)
Which led to lots of this. :-(
Which needed lots of these. Yucky
I used 6 cotton buds to clear the lint out of my Toyota and that is the third time during this quilt, once more before I put the binding on should do it. I just have one more row to attach but that is three long seams. I am not sure if it is this material or the wadding that is generating so much lint. I use the Warm and Light in most of my projects and have never had to clean so frequently before.
We did manage a little of this. We had to come home too soon really, there is a vintage car and motorbike show in the village and some of the bikes are hurtling round the lanes and they are very noisy.
I am going to attach the last row to my quilt and then make the binding, I went through my stash of fabric and nothing jumped out at me so I will be using all (well alright then, some) of my left over strips to make a scrappy binding.
I hope that you are all enjoying your week end as much as I am. I nearly forgot to say,when I was visiting Mr S on Friday the Postie left a card to say that there was a parcel for me too big for the letter box
. It is being redelivered tomorrow. I have no idea what it is,
I have all the books from up the Amazon, I have all my goodies from America and Hereford, perhaps someone loves me enough to send me a nice surprise I will share tomorrow. TTFN Pam
Good idea about the cotton buds for declogging your machine. I use a little brush on my seam ripper but it isn't as effective as I would like. Can't wait to see your finished quilt- it looks lovely xReplyDelete
I do use a brush but find that cotton buds scoop the lint up quickly.Delete
Suprise parcel, maybe hubby has bought you a new long arm machine :-)ReplyDelete
I wish, I really have no idea what it could be.I could have gone and picked it up but it means a 40 minute round trip, without traffic.Delete
Hi Pam, isnt it lovely to get a surprise parcel in the post? (I say that like I get them all the time but I dont! Whenever I have done I love it). Looks like you had a bit of sunshine in your neck of the woods too!ReplyDelete
I love surprises, a new friend from the next village heard on the grapevine that I sew and dropped off a box of various fabrics, pillow cases, table cloths a couple of sheets and so on. Treasure to me, I am collecting "vintage" ie used fabrics to make some quilts with soft colours.Delete
How strange, my facebook status for yesterday morning was ' "Sun shining up above me" to paraphrase Mama Cass' Great minds!ReplyDelete
Yes, looking forward to seeing thw finished quilt - and you've got us all agog for news of the Mystery Parcel! Lx
Watch this space, or rather today's blog post. I just hope that it is something interesting, but I will reveal all no matter what.Delete
Mama Cass was the best, the nearest to her is Alf. Alison Moyet, I have loved her voice from the Yazoo days.
