Cheryl (no blog) arrived while this was happening and she and I headed down to check out the craft market in the local hall before enjoying a coffee at Blond.........leaving the "renovators" to clean up after themselves.
I have been itching to get to my quilt frame since it arrived last weekend and today was the day to make a start......I loaded on a couple of pieces of calico and some wadding......Cheryl's spare machine and off I went...I am hooked....it is fabulous.......had some issues with tension on the machine which I think I have now overcome......and am looking forward to some more time spent on the "doover" tomorrow......
I do also need to get into my sewing room and see if there is still a floor in there.....haven't seen it for a while......so tomorrow morning while everyone is sleeping in I will be upstairs in the sewing room....'playing'......!
I mentioned in a previous post that the Vintage Festival scarecrows are around - I just caught this one out of the corner of my eye when I went outside yesterday.......at first glance it looked like someone standing there looking into our yard...gave me quite a start!!!
Chelsea the wonder dog seems hell bent on doing herslef harm.....something woke me up in the early hours this morning.....I thought the mice must have got a lot bigger as there were some major munching noises coming from the dining room.....on further investigation I found Chelsea "hiding" under the dining room table finishing off a large block of chocolate she had stolen out of Nick's girlfriend's handbag......she had carefully removed the wrapper before getting stuck in......given that chocolate is like poison for dogs we were really concerned and kept a close eye on her but she has shown no ill effects - I think quite a bit of silver paper has been consumed as well so will be watching out for reflective poops around the yard......!
Two days of the Easter break gone already........hope where ever you are you are enjoying the holiday.
'Til next time..............Lorraine
