Yesterday was gloriously sunny and cold.. I got so much work done, sometimes that happens
Here's the shadow of the Jasmine by my door
And here the ripples on my table through a basket
3-1/2 book covers
Some patchwork in two projects
Did the washing-up twice
Long email conversation about a new website transfer (60+ emails)
Took and processed about 100 photos for the web
Several cups of tea and coffee
A bag for my camera tripod
Sheet corners to make a flat sheet fitted
and a shopping list in a pear tree
Oh, and half-watched a terribly film on the TV
And slept well
The greenhouse has been cleaned out this week, and the geraniums put to bed for the Winter
This post is brought to you by Obligatory Cat Posts Unlimited, a small company of great power and influence
Meanwhile, Heather and I have been conspiring for a new group, Broadland Art Textiles, see right.. If you are relatively local and fancy joining, see the "Join This Group" page on that blog..
My hand still isn't healed.. I'm feeling cross and weak and viciously frustrated, but I have been working, after a fashion.. I can't afford not to, as the money will run out pretty soon.
Did a craft Fair.. Oh, yes, now I remember why I don't do these.. All day, well-meaning enquiries about the hand and "Oh, not healed yet?" And few sales and those small.. Oh, yes, that's why..
And I belong to a group called Fast Friday Fabric Challenge which proposes a theme each month and allows a week to make a quilt on that theme.. This (above) took 20 minutes. I then spent an hour trying to access the blog to upload it.. Bloody Google insists that I must get a code from my mobile phone to allow access, and I can't give a number.. I'm not thirteen, don't live to text, just want to show my work on a forum I belong too.. I don't know why I bother.. Actually, I think I won't any more.. Not amusing enough..
ETA.. Thanks Tobi, you've sorted and solved and I will leave you my stash in my will..
I've been exchanging hand-made postcards for many years, pretty much at random - I find one on the mat and send one back by return.. I have a boxfull, some of which have been gently modified by the post office in passing.. Never one quite like this, though (note, I have scuffed the return address deliberately in Photoshop..)
I'm sending one back, hope it arrives cleaner than this..
Well, it may have been raining outside, but at Fleggburgh Village Hall all was sunny inside.. Forty quilters of all ages and stages had a sociable and satisfying day at the Norfolk Quilters’ Guild Area Day
We started with tea, and Star Blocks, and there was much puzzling over and sorting-out of the kits cut by Heather Hasthorpe.. Each had three carefully-selected fabrics in ready-cut pieces, and an instruction sheet.. By lunchtime, there were a whole set of delightful Star Blocks, each a little different from the last
After soups and sandwiches, we reconvened for a little hand-stitching.. Helen Howes’ colourful hand-dyed wool pieces, with multicoloured threads, beads, buttons and bits, made brooches as individual as the makers.. The afternoon was only interrupted by lashings of cake and more tea, a seriously good raffle, and the Competition winner (Sewing Sundries) which was a very close-run vote, as the entries were so excellent..
Our trader (Rob, from Sew and Sos in Bungay) was busy most of the day, and several biggish piles of fabric went home for next month’s projects
And the Guild has gained a new member, so that’s a result, too..
Heather and I are planning another Area Day in the spring, with a Contemporary Quilt theme..
