Ben and Herbie rushed to my aid, as did the SO. I had to sit for moment and catch my breath then got to the sofa. Tea was supplied and after a little while I felt much better.
I had a rootle through the fabric stash yesterday and have pulled lots of pinks, some blue with pink floral and may add a little soft green to the mix. I have almost decided on the pattern, I just need to have a look at my white on white. If there is enough I plan on the Tumbling Charm Quilt from Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Co. I have made this a few times and it is a simple pattern that showcases the prints.
I aim on getting all the fabric pressed today and cut out, much of it is already 5" charm squares so it should not take too long. I have plenty of wadding and possibly enough of a suitable backing fabric.
I want this to be a fairly quick project as I am not sure of the operation timeline.
I have a small shopping list so will factor that in sometime over the next couple of days.
We have a dry and sunny morning so far and there will be pegging out happening very soon.
There is a black hole in the house that has sucked up all my tea towels, not all but I seem to have a much smaller pile than I did. I have added them to the list but may have to look online. I only like the smooth woven cotton and most of the shops seem to have terry toweling or those lumpy bumpy woven things that shrink alarmingly on the first wash. I could travel into Swansea but have far better things to do with my time. I am going into Neath next week so will have a look in Wilko and Morrisons. There is a Magic and Sparkle but they only have clothes and food.
'Nuff of this, I have lots to do and the dogs are looking at me, it is time for a walk.
