I have just been almost told off for not putting a post up.
In my defence I have been preoccupied with sewing and shuffling my kitchen cupboards around. Well, not the cupboards, just the contents. Things that I have not used for quite a while are now in the top cupboard near the sink, the most awkward one to reach. If they are untouched by the spring then they will be donated.
I have bound two of the grandchildren's quilts and the third one is ready to start, as is their parents quilt. The binding is made and ironed so tomorrow is booked. There are 4 bags that just need finishing and 3 more to make, not before January though, phew!
I spent a few happy hours at the Flying Goose on Saturday learning foundation piecing. It was great fun just a shame that it was under subscribed. There is another coming up and I have put my name down for that as well.
Last night I decided to practice Free motion quilting, not too bad considering that I haven't done any for a year or more. Well it wasn't too bad till today, the blasted machine was rattling like Jed Clampetts car. I stripped it out, cleaned it and threaded it up with a new needle and bobbin and it still rattled. I put it away to look at tomorrow and got my little Singer out. It has been wonderful, a bit noisy compared to the Janome but certainly worth the space it fills.
If there are still problems that I cannot fix in the morning it will be off to the repairers.
Dinner tonight is sweet potatoes baked in their skins with a pasta sauce that I found in the freezer.
We are still trying to eat our way through the contents before doing a big shop to cover the week that Fran is here. I may be cooking some vegetarian meals as well. W normally goes away for the week, but with all the hospital goings on, has not booked anything yet.
Ben is beside me, snoring steadily, I think that he is marking time till his dinner is put down.
The SO has a couple of free days so is painting the kitchen, just walls and ceiling, it was looking a bit tired. Now it is well on the way to being sparkling white, and looking much brighter.
He just announced that the kettle is going on so a cuppa is on it's way and I am going to quickly clear the decks. It will soon be time to start those potatoes.
