I've been cutting out hexagons for a little folded patchwork bag.
I cut out large hexagons, then smaller ones with a matching piece of wadding. Now they are just waiting for me to sew together. Something I will enjoy whilst quietly not watching the television. I do that more than I thought I did.
Now school is broken up I will be able to get on with my work much better. Having pupils and staff in does stop me getting on! It also means that I can finish work when I actually should, thus having some useful sewing time left in the evening.
Ben has been here most of the weekend because his mummy and daddy have been at a wedding in Saltburn by the Sea. We've built the same jigsaw about five times and played trains until my knees are sore with the crawling and I'm begging for mercy.
So now I have a cottage pie in the oven for tea and a nice pile of hexagons to sew. The dust has settled and it can wait there a little longer before I even think about getting out a duster. Actually a couple of weeks and then it will be banished, as my very house-proud friend is coming to stay for a week in August. Better clear the cupboards out too and wash the powder drawer in my washing machine. I'm looking forward to all the trips we have planned around my beloved Northumberland.
