Yet another foul day outside. Today we have rain and wind and neither Andy or I feel like braving it to do the sheds.
Apparently Tuesday is going to feel positively tropical after this weekend of cold and luckily Andy will be at home so it can wait until then.
I didn't get started on any sewing yesterday as I was knocked sideways by some very bad stomach pains and other symptoms which you don't really want to know about. I'm putting it down to the salad I ate on Friday.
So today Andy is cooking our late lunch of roast chicken and I have this out on the table ready for doing some cutting and layering later this afternoon............
I was thrilled to find this patchwork fabric in Dunelm as it means I can make little quilts that look like patchwork without having to sew tiny squares together.....which I would have done but hey....I'm all for saving a bit of time.
The fabric under the scissors is for the backing, binding and pillows.
The scissors are the new ones I bought the other day and they had better be good. I do already have a pair of fabric scissors but I find they don't grip the material and are very awkward and slippy to use and make my hands ache. These have one slightly serrated edge which will hopefully grip the fabric better. I will know later when I have done some cutting.
DD decided to go upstairs and get in some computer time last night so Andy and I started the second series of Atlantis. It's getting better and we quite enjoyed it. No more tonight though as we have Midwife and Good Karma Hospital to watch while we snuggle by the fire.
I've got a feeling I am going to miss that fire when it comes out but we will eventually have a woodburner put in when we have recovered from the cost of the conversion to oil.
I hope you are all keeping warm and cosy on this horrible day.
