This week has seen our first snow fall, which seems really strange after having such a mild few weeks. We only had an inch or 2, but enough to cause chaos to the commuters. Luckily I was tucked up in bed – I took the photo below when I returned home after my night shift.
I placed a couple of orders with Fabric Rehab. The first one arrived, and after looking through it everything looked familiar, but only because I’d scrutinised the website when placing my order and nearly bought everything!! I couldn’t remember what I’d ordered but thought I’d ordered 3m of the top fabric to make cushions for the lounge. There was only 1m so I checked my account. None of the other fabrics were mine!! I got in touch with Fabric rehab and they were going to refund my money, but then a day later another customer got in touch as she had my parcel!
H and I called into Curry’s to look at TVs and ended up having a go at the virtual reality set up that was for sale. The guy was fab, no hard sell and we both had a really long go. At about £750 I don’t think we’ll be buying it!
H having a go…
Then we nipped into Pizza Express for tea. I don’t mind the hubby being late home, it means me and H sneak off for a treat!
I’ve made a couple of blocks for ‘tealed with a kiss‘ – the next quilt that’s being made to raise money for ovarian cancer. Kate from Tall Tales from Chiconia is organising it. It’s the same lady I made my ‘time for teal’ blocks if you remember. This is the first block – it was only supposed to have one cross, but I went wrong and didn’t have another more of the cream backgground to had to do 2 small ones, but I’m really pleased with how it turned out. This is before I’d finished trimming it.
There’s a challenge going on this month on instagram, and as part of it I posted this picture this week. It shows how to tidy up your straggly ends on your overlocking using a loop turner. I thought some of you might find it useful.
On Friday night we went to H’s cricket club presentation night. He won the batting award for the under 15’s and also for the development team. Proud mum!! He also has won the batting award for the under 15’s in the league, but he’s not got that trophy yet. I think he got 250 runs not out in the matches, where they have to retire on 30 (sorry for the gobbledygook if you don’t speak cricket!
A birthday treat arrived from across the pond! Thanks Del xx
Saturday night we went to a charity night with an 80’s theme. We only knew one other couple who were going so weren’t expecting to have such a good night, but it was fab, and I took advantage of the hubby in his dancing shoes!
Feature image at the top…my second package arrived from Fabric Rehab, this time it was mine! This lot worked out about £10!! Bargain!
