The Perfect Day!!!

They don't come along too often but yesterday was an absolutely perfect day. Just the right balance of getting house jobs done and having time to work on the quilts while listening to some jollifying music.
So...........


One hand tied quilt....finished and the binding added to the second ready for hand finishing today....hopefully.....if I don't get too many distractions. 
There could be many distractions as Andy is home and outside putting up a handrail along the side of the garden steps where the shed used to provide a barrier to the drop on that side. I will most likely be called many times to hold things and check that things are straight and I will be called upon to keep him stoked up with coffee......aaaaand right now I will be calling him in as it has started raining....doesn't it always?

Tea tonight will be the crunchy tuna salad that DD and I didn't have last night because she said that as we had to go out and do a top up shop she might as well treat me to tea out and very nice it was too.
As it is quite cold I might do a small jacket potato with the salad.

Tomorrow we will have workmen here getting the area for the oil tank ready. I need to start looking at oil prices ready for when it has to be filled up but I'll go and see a couple of neighbours who have oil to see who they use first.

Well he won't come in so I had better go and make him the first of the many cups of coffee he will be having.....good job it's decaf else gawd knows what we would end up with out there....lol.

Thanks for dropping by today.

  1. The quilts look really lovely.
    I remember when we had an oil tank the initial cost was expensive but it seemed to last xx

    1. Thank you Marlene.
      Yes it's that initial cost that is worrying me but once we have had a season of using it we will know how long we can make it last-x-

  2. The quilts are gorgeous and the material really looks like you've stitched lots of little squares together. I bet Ruby will be thrilled with them.

    It might be winter but we still eat plenty of salad here 'on the side' with our meals. We can't get enough of beetroot at the moment and as lettuceberg seems to be over as quickly as it came all is calm!

    Have a lovely day and I hope the work Andy is doing goes without too many hitches. xx

    1. Awww thanks Suzanne. I hope she will like them too.

      If I lived on an iceberg I would still eat salad. It is definitely my favourite meal.

      Step rail has been achieved with no swearing from Andy...lol....and I have only had to help about four times.
      I am very impressed with him.
      Hugs-x-

  3. Such cute quilts, Ruby will be so thrilled. I think one of the things with oil is getting it at the right time because of the fluctuations in price xx

  6. We have a contract for our oil and pay monthly, some months we owe them othertimes they owe us and the difference is sorted out each April. The contract also includes a maintenance cost for the boiler which includes a yearly service. Beautiful quilts, the fabrics are stunning.
