After tea I sewed on the hanging loops made from some lovely ribbon I got at High Street Quilting.
So sorry about the naff quality of the pictures - the light has been so bad this weekend (apart from first thing this morning when I was driving to the shops when the sun was shining directly in my eyes). So now all I have to do is the binding on Max's stocking which I haven't cut yet. It can wait now though - I still have a few days to finish that.
I decided to give up on the Attic 24 Crochet-Along. When I was buying the yarn at Ring-a-Rosie, Barbara said she thought she wouldn't make this one because she didn't like the way the colours joined together unevenly. I tried my best but she was right. It was ugly.
So I have started on something else:
We've had a strange eating pattern this weekend so the beef that I roasted this afternoon is going to be for tea tomorrow. This is probably due to the fact that I didn't have any food in the house except pasta and tuna because the weather stopped me going out shopping yesterday. Will scoffed the remainder this afternoon - plus some of the mince pies which were destined for a meeting tomorrow at work. Shhh! - they'll never know! The snow arrived but is almost melted away now and I can hear the pitter pat of rain against the window now.
Can you tell they are red velvet cakes?
Sorry Karen - hope you are feeling better......
When we were making our Durham Quilts, Elizabeth - who is the only quilter I know that works in metric - decided to do a miniature version
Sooooo - only one more week at work and then I'm off for two weeks. My colleague is coming back after nearly seven months of illness and treatment (she was hoping to be back after six weeks but things were worse than thought). I'm so glad she is on the mend now though and will be handing back her work on a phased return over the following six weeks.
Under my bright work light tonight I will be continuing to crochet the ripple blanket - next line will be lime green - the colours more than make up for the dreary light conditions we are having. But just now I am going to put an ice-pack on my poor overworked hand.
Have a good week everyone.
