I didn't get to the basting stage the other night(oh my was that nearly a week ago!), I must have been very tired that night as I somehow managed to sew three blocks round the wrong way! Duh! It was rather funny because I had only seen two and asked my family if they could see what was wrong with the quilt and they pointed to one I hadn't seen, Lol. Never mind I have decided it can stay like it, the quilt made by the designer has one block turned the wrong way too, so that makes me feel a little better! I did find some time during the week to get it basted, now I just have to decide what thread to quilt it with.
I have been pottering in the garden this week. I stole my husbands old rusty toolbox he used to store farm tools and stuff in, and have planted some daffodil bulbs that were sprouting in an old bucket, (right where I had left them from last year as I didn’t know where I wanted to put them;o) The problem with our garden is that I want to do so much with it, but because the farm isn’t ours it’s probably not worth putting in too much effort. I couldn’t resist buying a Daphne bush though:o) I will try to take some photo’s of the garden tomorrow.
As you can see I have been shopping at the Book Depository again and bought this book I am hoping it will help me learn more about my camera. While browsing I couldn’t resist buying another 2 books…
especially since they were both on special and then the book depository sent me an email coupon with another 10% off!
Yesterday was officially the first day of winter, you wouldn’t have thought so though, they have been absolutely beautiful days, no clouds in the sky just lovely, but I think we’re going to get our first frost tonight.
Well I have a very early start in the morning, I have to be at my sisters house by 5.30 (yes that’s am) she asked if I would babysit for her so instead of waking the kids up and bringing them out to me I said I would go to them! Gosh I’m nice, Lol My day is jam packed with activities tomorrow, I am so pleased it is a long weekend this weekend, I plan to have a very relaxing one, what are your plans for the weekend?
