Today I'm taking Coco into Hamilton to be groomed.
While she is there, I hope to get the grocery shopping done and swing by Amanda's to pick up some mail.
If I get the time, I will also pop into Doona's Quilt Studio to check out their patchwork classes. I am hoping to join one of their 'casual' groups.
They are like the one here, you go and work on whatever you want to. I might make a start on my Dresden Plate Quilt soon.
That will keep me occupied for months and months!
So far, I've got two piles of fabric for the quilt:

I'm thinking of doing alternate 'fins' of white and coloured, with a coloured centre.
I suppose I'm not going to know how to do it until I try putting some pieces together.
In case you don't know what I'm talking about, this is my blue Dresden Plate Quilt:
ABOVE: My Dresden Plate Quilt. With my next one, I'm taking the blocks all the way down to the floor, no 'skirt'. This one has 25 'blocks', the next one will have 63! Sheesh, that's a lot more.
Day dreaming... nowhere near ready to make a start on that quilt! But I really can't wait to get it started.
1.34 pm: And home from Hamilton. Grooming done. Groceries done. Mail picked up.
OH! And I enrolled at the patchwork class at Donna's Quilt Studio. I start there next Tuesday morning. Excited. It's held in the shop, so I can get stuff I need right there and then! Gotta love that.
ABOVE: OH! AND... I finally went into the Gouda Cheese Shop in Hamilton. Have wanted to go in there for years and years! I ended up tasting about 5 cheeses, and bought three. Yum yum!
Now? I'm starving. Lunchtime...
Yeah sorry, I forgot to update! I was BUSY.
10.33 pm: Well... Lacy took herself off to Tauranga for the weekend, she has stuff to sort out before she comes back. WINZ stuff/car stuff and so on.
I spent the afternoon putting away the groceries, flattening bottles for the recycling bin, getting washing done, cooking dinner, you know... all the usual stuff us girls do most days.
It's now almost bedtime. Coronation Street was interesting tonight, several story lines developing. Love that show.
