There was a ray of golden light at 10.30 though, the postie knocked on the door, I am sure that he tries to wake the dead.
This turned up.
The white and green is for the border on the chevron baby quilt, I had realised that none of my stash was what I wanted. I took a look at several web sites and could not find the right pattern and colour combination. Then I thought of my old LQS and had a look at Button up and Stitch, Bingo. I found exactly what I wanted and in the sale, while I was there I had a quick look see, it would have been rude not to, and found the other 3 prints.
The red and white jumped off the screen at me, it is a small version of a FMQ pattern that I have been practising on. The pink and yellow spots just shouted "Summer Holiday" at me and I love spots. I had a metre of each and the postage was much less than the cost of my petrol would have been to get to Cross Hands and back.
But the very best bit of it, for me, was this.
I did not order it until 9.40 yesterday morning, less than 25 hours from order to delivery. That is cracking service, I applaud the shop for getting the order prepared and sent off in record time.
But a very big round of applause must go to the Post Office, I have sent several parcels recently and none have taken much more than 25 hours to be delivered.
Anyhow, at bed time last night the chevron quilt top looked like this,
Spread out waiting to be squared up, I could go no further without border fabric.
Here it is at 11.30 this morning, bordered, layered and ready for quilting.
I love the green print border and can hardly wait to start the quilting.
I had to stop sewing and start prepping dinner, I settled on a stir fry so lots of slicing done.
Talking about dinner, let me show you what I had yesterday.
The mug behind is 5" tall, perhaps you can see why Ben had half the Pudding. It was very tasty though I did wake up still quite replete this morning.
Tonight I am making a stir fry, I have a pile of peppers, celery and stuff in the fridge, along with half an onion, some root ginger, chili, garlic, carrot and shredded cabbage, not forgetting 4 button mushrooms I should have a tasty meal. I will add some soy sauce and a dollop of my plum and chilli jam to make a sauce.
Now a cup of tea is calling, so I am off to make a brew.
Enjoy the weekend, whatever the weather.
