Just Pootling!!!

The plan is drawn for the quilt and some fabric has been chopped up but I think I am going to see if I can find another shirt to replace the white one I had bought. Looking at it I think the white will be too much.....and let's not forget that this quilt is for Andy.
Andy + white is not a good idea.....lol.
I am amazed at how much fabric you get out of one shirt.....there will even be some left over to make him a cushion.
........and for anyone interested....soaking in starch and air drying before steam ironing really does work. The fabric was beautifully crisp and cut like a dream.

Today will be spent just pootling about doing odd jobs that require little effort and this afternoon I will attempt to blow up the little paddling pool DD managed to find the other night and I'll put it on the back yard ready for when Ruby gets here. She will love it.....and I may also find time to go and have a sit, dabble my toes and sip a cold drink.

Stay cool....and don't forget your sunscreen.

  1. With learners going down like flies at the moment I find myself with the unexpected luxury of a lunch at home...spoilt only by getting a bee sting to the bottom of my foot! Careful not to puff too hard!! x

    1. That was a nice surprise for you then to be able to have your lunch at home although you could have done without the bee sting.

      I failed at blowing up the paddling pool:(

  3. I'm not a lover of too much white, if any, in quilts either. It seems to leech the colour out of everything else.
    I bet Ruby really enjoyed the paddling pool didn't she. I've been reading some children were sent home from school today. Bet they were thrilled. Xx

    1. I think I just don't like lots of plain in a quilt at all Suzanne...I much prefer patterns with blenders.

      Ganma failed at blowing up the paddling pool by mouth and I couldn't find the little pump thing we have.
      Mind you she was exhausted after a hot day at school and just wanted cuddles and ice cream.
