Tallulah likes Bex's wool:
Last night I got the quilting done on the Mariner's Compass, and sewed on the binding too. Now I have to put a backing on, work out how I'm going to hang it and do the finishing off...
ABOVE: I'm really happy with it!
ABOVE: fairly hard to see, but just showing you the quilting stitch I used... a wave pattern, quite neat! Bex suggested it and I'm glad she did, or I might have been too scared to try it.
It wasn't even that hard, seeing as it's a programmed stitch on the machine.
So, today? As we got bugger all housework done over the weekend, I might devote the morning to doing a bit... then after lunch I'm off to the Hospice Shop.
Right... catch ya later.
ABOVE: Someone found the dog's bed quite comfy... and lots of fun.
ABOVE: Then he found out that the dogs didn't really enjoy his 'company'.
ABOVE: Tallulah decided Dante's little seat was a better option.
I've developed a cracker jack headache this morning... so fingers crossed it goes before I have to leave for Hospice.
Well... it's been an eventful afternoon.
I had a bit of an incident on the way home from Hospice... but will talk about that tomorrow.
ABOVE: This rather nice winter dress... it's pure wool by the feel of it. It will be great for next winter. $1.00 !
ABOVE: This lovely necklace, I've had my eye on it for weeks and today I just couldn't leave it there any longer.
I also got about 6 wooden picture frames of various sizes, for me 'doodle' art pictures.
Bex cooked a lovely spaghetti bologniese for dinner. I love not having to cook.
Excitement in the house. Steve is about to buy a van for his work. He's on the hunt and may have found a good one to look at, hopefully tomorrow.
So... I think that's me for the day... I'm going to have a nice, relaxing evening, probably watching TV tonight. I've got a bit of eye strain from sewing so much the last few days, so am giving it a few days break.
End of Day: a good day, with a bit of a 'blimp' at the end. More on that tomorrow... I'm 'saving' it till then! *smiles*
