Done (in that is)

Another quickie, I  was awake at stupid o'clock this morning and after tossing and turning for almost an hour, I threw in the towel and got up.
I had a cuppa and got stuck into the Dresden plate quilt. It is now bound and wrapped ready for the post tomorrow. There are 3 separate parcels for Fran, 2 for her birthday and one containing some Christmas sewing for her house.

The SO decided to have a play with fabric and thread and made a really good fully lined and quilted tote bag, I filled it with the smaller gifts, put it in one  of the parcels and completely forgot to take a photo.

I have been sorting through the small storage baskets, tidying and labelling them all.

Dinner was home cooked fish and chips with mushy peas, a lazy and indulgent treat and I enjoyed every mouthful. No pudding, I had to wait over an hour before I could attempt a cuppa.

Now of course I am shattered, I dare not go to bed too early just in case I get into a "groundhog day" scenario. I don't want to be sleepy all day and buzzing with adrenaline all night.
I've had a shower and am in pj's and it is tea o'clock.

Well it must be somewhere in the world.

  1. Good work on getting the quilt ready to go. I have mine up to the sandwich part, but it needs a good ironing first. Hope to get the sandwiching done tomorrow, and the quilting done the next day.

    God bless.

  2. What a lovely quilt Pam. Sounds as though Fran is in for some lovely present opening. Take care xx

  5. Wow, the quilt is beautiful and will become a treasured heirloom!

  6. I don't like it when I am up at silly 'o' clock....7am is quite early enough for me although recently I have been a bit of a bed hugger.
    Homemade fish and chips. Love that and I haven't cooked it for ages.

  7. Do you make your own mushy peas? JanF

  8. Ha! "Stupid O'clock" is perfect. That's when I woke up Sunday night/Monday morning. I finally turned on my Kindle and read for over an hour. Then was exhausted ALL DAY at work. Oy vey!

  9. The quilt is gorgeous, she is going to love it. Hope you get more sleep tonight!

  10. Love that quilt. It is so pretty, love the blue border
