If you have been wondering where my Brit Quilt Swap went, please check out Sarah's blog post!
I was so happy to get paired with my cyber-friend and fellow Brit Bee member. I am ecstatic that she loves it so much - all my late night stalking really paid off! Sarah has also recently been one of Rhonda's
I, on the other hand am still waiting to receive mine. The posty knocked early today, and although it was for me, a huge bundle of wadding I'd order from Mandy at Simply Solids, plus a cool bonus Patty Young FQ, I will have to try to wait patiently until at least after work on Monday.
Last night I did cut up the fabric for my Mum's birthday quilt. After a so-so practice attempt at a kaleidoscope block...
... I've decided to go simpler; firstly the waste/scrap creation from the LC and charm pack was going to be a little distressing, then my piecing of the centre point kind of left a lot to be desired, and with potentially 49 blocks I couldn't face it, and I need to make a big quilt in a short space of time.
So I took over the lounge floor and it will probably come out a little like this, but then again it might not! I am having second, or is that third thoughts already!
The reason for my current headache I will lay firmly at the door of today's 40 odd mile round trip for Twin2's ballet show. (Twin1 gave up after a few weeks, she is very bolshy, and perhaps wise for a 4 year old!) Anyway, the family took the trip to Haselmere and watched little one point her toes for the first 5 minutes of a 2 hour show, and then sat watching the other girls, mainly aged about 14 doing their thing, and they were all really good.
*** NO PHOTOS ALLOWED***I have to do it all again tomorrow, although I can whisk her away after the first dance - we have to be there one and a half hours before the show, and she'll be off stage after 5 minutes... I have no energy to rant about this one, but she is so pleased with herself, and I had a lovely proud mummy moment, so I will sleep happy.
I also got some smashing 'winning' news earlier which I will save until tomorrow to share :)
Now, I just need to go get rid of this headache, nighty night.
