Finally I got stuck in and blitzed the bathroom then went through the house and washed all the paintwork down. Feeling very virtuous I sat at the sewing table and managed to get the binding sewn on my new table topper. I quilted it yesterday but was a bit headachey so left the binding ready to sew.
I used a solid blue for the binding as there is so much pattern in the top. A nice amount of scraps used and another 2 should help get them back to manageable proportions.
The backing is most of some yardage that I bought in a sale years ago. There is still enough left for another project, possibly as binding.
Dinner today will be impossible quiche with loads of salad, I like to use up all the odds and ends from the fridge on Wednesday.
Tomorrow is shopping day, I need to get some coriander seed and mustard powder for piccalilli making.
Dawn from Doing if for Ourselves in Wales has made hers, reading her blog post was a timely reminder that I am down to a small jar. I do not make tons at a time as the basic ingredients are available all the year round. I do vary the veg content depending on what I have.
Then Bovey Belle left a comment on Dawn,s craft site reminding me that needle felting is on my "to do one day" list. Of course I fell in love with the rainbow of felt that Dawn shared and I aim to play with some this winter.
I may have to give up cooking, eating and sleeping to have a chance to try all the things that I want to.
Oh well, better rig up and get Ben out, he does not care what the weather does.
