I had this brilliant idea about that brown/teal quilt. I'm going to applique something ON TOP of the blocks to make it a bit more 'musculine' for Russell.
I hope it comes out ok.
I'm not going to say what I'm putting on it ... I will just wait and show you.
I did try to make a pattern for the added applique last night, but it didn't look right, so I'll have to give it another go later on.
Today I'm going to take the dogs for a walk, then sew for the rest of the morning. After lunch I'm at the Hospice Shop till closing.
Tomorrow morning I am going to devote to catching up with other people's blogs.
Feeling really tearful today.
Stew had to go back THERE and act like everything was honky dory, I don't know HOW he does it.
If it was me I'd stay home in bed, call in sick for a week.... anything rather than have to face them at work and act like all is well.
Did another dumb thing. Won't go into specifics, but I feel bad. And sad. But, like every other shitty thing that happens, you move on and get over it.
The dogs and I went for our 30 minute walk. Coco kept doing this weird thing with her breathing, I think it was just due to her pulling on the lead. But I can't help worrying, in case her tumour spread and we don't know? I'm a worry wart.
Time to get back to the quilt applique pattern.
I decided to edit photos from yesterday... and with Amanda's permission:
ABOVE: Little Liam. He is now 16 months old and doing very well. Walks some, crawls some.
Darling wee man.
ABOVE: Miss Emily. 3 going on 10! Very strong willed little girl, but gorgeous too. She did a lot of 'posing' then wanting to see the photo of herself. Very cute.
Right, I better be off to the Hospice Shop. Fingers crossed it's busy.
Well... clearly I've not been on here since lunchtime!
Hospice was busy, if not serving customers I was putting stock out on the floor.
I saw a really cute and comfortable rocking chair for $10, but could think of NOWHERE in my house I could put it...
ABOVE: See? Lovely. I said to Bernadette (Manager on Monday's) that if it wasn't bought by 5 pm I would have to get it!
Luckily ... it got sold within about half an hour of me saying that!
I did find some treasure to bring home, I'll show you tomorrow.
End of Day: a truly down day for me really. All the stress that has been building up for months finally caught up with me I think, making me miserable. No one like misery around them, so I'll bugger off and go to bed early I think.
