A Quiet Moment!!
My youngest goes into a school for two hours on a Friday morning so a couple of minutes to say what's been going on recently.
I finished to quilt for Mrs B, my children's other grandma and gave to her last week. I made this doing the QAL with SewHappyGeek. It was the first one I've done and I loved the fact that it was a sampler. As a new quilter I obviously hadn't done any of the blocks before. I was mostly really chuffed with how it came out, except for the binding which I can tell is going to be my nemesis for a while. But hey, we've all gotta learn. I used to know a girl whose mum told us (yes it was that long ago) that there were two things in life, stuff you know and stuff to learn. 30 years later I can still hear her voice.
Panic moment though. My mum and dad are coming from France to stay with my sister on Monday. Last night I sat down to finish the quilt I'm making for them (I finished the top a while ago now) and discovered I just did not have enough backing material to do it. Damn and blast I will have to order some quick and pay for super fast delivery. NOT something I am known for doing.
My other kids are enjoying a non-pupil day today. They SHOULD be up and about and working hard at (Ruby) art prep and (K) English A level coursework. Are they hell, they are loviu a teenage lay-in. Still, least it's quiet.
