|Two more cushions|
Yesterday I actually stuck to my plan and got the last two cushions made so the stash in the corner has got very slightly smaller....lol.
From cutting out to finishing the two took about an hour as they are only simple envelope backs. With these latest cushions I have started overcasting the inside seams so that there should be no fraying when they are washed. I have an overcasting foot in the set of thirty feet I got from Amazon and it makes the most fabulous job of neatening everything up.
Today my gorgeous Ruby arrives for her three night stay and I can't wait. With a lot of attention of the new arrival I think she is feeling a little left out so some crafting and snuggling with ganma should see her right.
Tonight she is going to the cinema with DD for a treat to see something called Zootropolis. I am passing on that one.....lol.
Teas for the next three nights are all planned with Ruby in mind as to what she will and won't eat so tonight it is fish and salad as she loves that. I went out last night to stock up on fruit, veg and salad as we had got through most of what I got last week. A few treats for Ruby also dropped into my trolley in the shape of colouring books and a new drawing book......and the obligatory popcorn which is a must for what she calls Ganma Club.
I have something exciting to look forward to in a couple of weeks.......hubby is taking me to the British Quilt & Stitch Village at Uttoxeter Racecourse. I'd asked him if he minded taking me and dropping me off but he said he would stay and find somewhere to sit and have a coffee just in case I needed anything.....wow. I did laugh though when I looked it up online. They have what's called a man's circle......sort of like a creche for husbands. How cool is that?
Well I have a bit of tidying and one more laundry load to do before the princess arrives and I must also prepare to turn into my alter ego.......Miss Honey......the teacher from the film Matilda. Ruby loves doing sums and spelling so we have to sit at the table and pretend to be at school. I suppose I should be glad she doesn't call me Miss Trunchbull.....lol.
Thanks for stopping by today.
