Sorry about the gap in blogging - normal excuse - time runs out. I know I ought to organise my time better but the truth is I do most of my stitching at the weekend and always think that the blog post will be more interesting by the end of Sunday. Really the best time to sit quietly at my laptop is on a Sunday morning. So here is q quick tour of what I have been up to:
Working on the hexagon bag (it looks very wrinkly at the moment).
Lined with green fabric and ready to stitch up - I think I might put some flowers on the front.
Looking after babies whilst their sleep deprived parents have a night in silence
Baking cheesecake for a wedding Will and Alex went to and making cupcakes with some of the cheesecake mix.
Visiting Sandra to paint and drop off a couple of quilts - gosh it was good to see her and have a lovely gentle chat about life
I rescued a bat (with the permission of the RSPCA)
Bound the edges of the 'Americana' quilt (to go to Quilts for Comfort)
Finished a cardigan with eight inches of yarn to spare
Made some more cheesecake by special request - this time a quick version - mascarpone cheese whipped up with raspberry jelly and some lemon juice. I poured a little bit of jelly over the top to make a glaze. It was more like mousse than cheesecake but edible of course!
So next weekend is a bank holiday - I have a list of things to do - none of them housework - I'm such a slattern!
