Half term holidays have got off to a fairly good start-weather wise, it is a lovely dry, bright crisp day and today was supposed to get most of the appointments out of the road. Today was eye and dental appointments-I was priding myself on how organised I was, only to arrive at the dentist with all three cherubs to find I was too organised-we were a week too early!! Just need to check that the asthma clinic is definitely tomorrow.
The positive outcome of this was, they were all up early and have had a good long day, so much so that the planned movie evening has turned into an afternoon session!lol! Does that mean, bedtime will come early??
Last week I was trying to get organised for the children at home this week and after the freezer got filled, I felt the need for some applique prepping (thinking of all the waiting room sits!lol!), so here are a few pics,
My favourite colours:)Sorry-should have moved those eggs
Lots of pennies.....
Can't seem to get the colours of this quilt right, but you get the drift. It is an adaptation of Cheri's Christmas Sampler-wool applique on a woollies flannel background and I hope to have many cozy evenings by the fire stitching this baby. There is a quite a bit of detail still to be added.
Thinking Christmas-I'm very excited about this new mag, solely for primitive quilting and has 10 great designers submitting patterns etc......Prim Gatherings, Liberty Star, Needl' Love, Primitive Pieces by Lynda and more. Well,I helped hubby on with his Christmas shopping and ordered a subscription-aren't I very thoughtful??
