We had a very wet day yesterday, the rain slowly retracted into a wet mist so Herbie had his long walk in the dark around 8:30. He cared not a jot about the time, he was just so happy to be outside.
I took the opportunity to pull out the largest sewing wip and am happy to show it now.
As you can see I have a cuppa on the go. It is quilting law, and if it isn't it should be.
This is part quilted and will be finished today and bound tomorrow. It will be going off to London for one of Francesca's long time friends. She has had a bit of a bumpy year and I wanted to send her a big hug.
Then there is the tree, a quick shot before the day turns busy.
I am braving the elements and the crowds to do a shop later, I will be doing a trawl round Pontardawe picking up some inspiration along with a few bits and pieces.
The big items, ie the joint of rib of beef, the ham and pork are all ordered to be collected on the 22nd at 8;30 am. I hope that I will miss the worst of the crowds.
That sounds like a great deal of meat, it will be for the whole week and (fingers crossed) some leftovers to freeze.
Then with any luck and a fair wind I will not see another shop for a week.
Now I need to move as it is a big day today. Rufus has been cleared by the vet to resume his walks with Herbie, they just have to be short and steady. I am not sure who will be the happiest out of the three of us.
