I’m blessing the fact that we have a gas stove………the power is going to be out for about three hours. What’s a gal to do but make hot chocolate and blog???
Lestat is completely unphased (and unimpressed) by my go-go dancing to the theme music of the 60’s British production UFO, which The Missus is watching on the portable DVD player. She is sitting shaking her head and laughing…..if nothing else I’m good for cheap entertainment! lol
I finished May’s FOSAL ornament today. It is a bit wonky on the top and bottom, as it didn’t want to behave…..It got to the stage where it was either finished wonky or was hacked to pieces…..I decided to go with the former lest The Missus have thoughts about calling the women in the white coats to come and get me…..That doesn’t bear thinking about…..All that “rest time” and not being able to play with needles and other sharp objects!
A couple of weeks ago a friend had a bad case of the blues. So I whipped up a dammit doll for her. I picked the ugliest fabric in my stash….(It came as part of a fq pack so I am taking NO responsibility for picking it! lol)…..I thought it would be easier to bash if it was not pretty…..She loves it and says it is too nice to whack on a hard surface….Having something hand made had a positive effect, which is wonderful…..
I wanted to have a go at foundation pieced flying geese a couple of weeks ago, so made a runner. The background colour blends in a bit more than I like, but I’m quite pleased with it….I just ignore the unevenness caused by sewing onto stretchy interfacing for the foundation!!!
There was a queen sized quilt at the craft fair yesterday that was made up of all small flying geese. It was hand quilted…..now that would take patience! It was in cream and a soft pink. It would look stunning in a feminine bedroom.
Have a fab week!
