I seem to be handing money over left, right and centre lately, what with Mark's birthday and setting up the caravan. Today was a bit more 'me' focused though. Some new books and a pack of washi tape from The Works paid for with my birthday voucher. And some new shoes. I really wanted another pair but they didn't have my size so I chose these instead. I've not given up on my original quest for footwear though. Middleton has the same shoe shop so I'll have a look in there when I next go.
I also picked up 3 sets of pillow cases for £1 each to use for the quilt. I decided to sew the hexy flowers onto a block and then sew the blocks together as I think this will be easier in the long run.
Do you think they look OK? I was going to do a 3x4 block but will add another row in to make it 4x4. The quilts don't have to be a specific size and they range from 20"x20" upwards, but the local co-ordinator has said the most common size is around 36"x36".
Every corner of the house seems to be filled with caravan stuff at the moment and I'm using the clutter as an excuse not to bother doing too much this week. The house will feel twice as big when it's all gone, in fact it will take on mansion proportions after living in the caravan for a weekend!
And somebody likes my clematis....a lot! A bit of googling and the culprits could well be earwigs. They remind me of Mark with the biscuit barrel, they obviously don't know when to stop. Greedy blighters......insects and humans!
