While my family was out on Saturday having fun without me, this is what I got up to:
here, and got an inspiration happening. I like this one as it has batting in the middle so it is thicker and warmer. And I must have walked into work with fresh eyes as i had no trouble finding exactly what i wanted, and it had all been there the whole time!!
Because I then had to quilt each block before putting it together, it took more time than the traditional one but i do like the results.
The edges look like this:
i never for even a minute thought they would obey my command (they knew it wasn't for real), but I did think i might get it to myself for longet than an hour. LOL!!!
I took it in to a very cold basketball stadium, against my eldest son's wishes last night. He might have been mortified, but I was warm, and the other mothers thought it was a very good idea!!!
So, now to what I need to be doing! Hubby's sock is not done, at this stage, after his birthday next week he is either going to have to cut a foot off, or hop everywhere!! I do need to get a move on with it but it wont be done on time.
And now i have also been asked to make a dress for the school musical. They want this made:
After looking at it I dont think it will be terribly difficult, but the instructions are just typed, no pictures. I do think I have it worked out for the most part, it really is quite simple once the pieces are assembled. I have been put on notice by the Other Half though; I am not to grumble if i get halfway through it and have difficulty; he says I should say no more often (and I should) but then who would do these things? I always feel bad that they would be left in the lurch.
Okay, housework beckons. Must go and make hay while the sun shines, as they say. This looks like being a lovely day, the first for quite a while, so i will be making use of it and doing washing. (What exciting lives we lead!!)
P.S. i was going to crop the first photo but it shows our old dog coming to have a sticky nose at what I was doing so I have left her in it.
