Life at Number 38 is nothing if not real, which is why my first job of the day was to clean up dog sick. The mutts are driving me mad lately, if it's not coming out of one end it's coming out of the other, although to be fair the rear end problem seems sorted now. The thing that really annoys me is that 70% of downstairs is wooden flooring so why do they always head for the 30% carpet to be ill?
After taking Thomas to school I came home and did a couple of hours of housework then sat down to some quilting. The hexy flower one is going quite well, if you don't take into account I sewed a strip on upside down so the pattern wasn't right and I had to unpick it and start over. One more row to go and then it's the bit I can't really do, the actual quilting part, although maybe because it's not too big and I've managed to line it up better this time, it won't be as difficult as when I last had a go.
This is the material I ordered last week before I went away which was waiting for me when I got home last night.
I've decided to do a brick style quilt with blue 'cement' and this is where I'm up to so far. Because I'm only doing small quilts I'll definitely get another two out of the material left over, possibly three if I use a block of colour as well. The 8 fat quarters cost me £7.92 plus £3.70 for postage so 3 or 4 quilt tops for £11.62 is pretty good I think. If I had to choose a favourite panel it would be the cowboys. We were brought up on John Wayne and I love a good old fashioned shoot out.
Mark and Amy are having a great time at the caravan. Amy has been into Blackpool this afternoon to do some shopping and Mark has been faffing around replacing the jockey wheel with one that is more up to his exacting requirements!
I'm just about to make a brew and watch The Disappearance, then it'll be shower, PJ's and bed.
