First of all welcome to Josie - thank you for your lovely comment on the Durham Quilt.
This week has been another roller coaster with a weekend cut short by our Summer Fair yesterday. This morning when I got up I wasn't quite sure where to start. I had to squeeze everything into one day. I must say I was hanging my head thinking, 'I'll just go back to bed'. When things overwhelm me I always think of my mother who used to say "Just start somewhere". So I did. I tidied my 'nest' which was full of threads and drawings and little snippets of fabric as well as unopened post and an empty glass. I'm such a slattern. For those of you who do not know what my nest is - it is a sofa surrounded by shelves and a little table. I stitch, crochet, read, doze and snack on inappropriate amounts of sugar here. It is in the bay window and has great light all day.
By the time my little area was tidied and straightened I felt better and decided to break for breakfast. This week I bought some sliced bread that disappeared into a million fragments when it was toasted. Yuk.
I got some sour dough bread on the way home from the fair yesterday and made myself a hearty breakfast (I was too tired to eat last night, so pretty hungry this morning)
The babies were round this morning, Ben stayed while Steph and John walked to the local car boot sale. He sat patiently while I finished piecing the Dancing Squares quilt then we went out to feed the bunny and hens. Later this morning I was surrounded by a cloud of poly cotton - 17m of it. I was tasked with the job of making a backdrop for our end of year musical - Grease - it had to have a huge fabric loop sewn in the middle so that it can be hoisted up half way through the performance. It's not that easy finding dead centre of 17m - I'll only know if it's right when they hang it up!
I laid the pieces out,
It's a lovely evening so I might sit in the garden for a bit. I hope your week ahead is a good one. xxxx
