I had a five year health check courtesy of the NHS yesterday. Apparently I have shrunk, and not in the way I would like. I am now officially 1 1/2 inches shorter than I was . Who knew you shrink as you get older, due to wear and tear? Did you know? I shall get over it , eventually.
I really enjoyed the quilting workshop a fortnight ago. I refused to allow myself to rush, and got my jelly roll strips joined and chopped. I had a busy afternoon this week, laying them on a bed to put them all back together again.
The design is rail fence, not certain I have got the hang of it properly, as my design seems more like a maze than anything else. I am off shopping for a border and a backing fabric. Original thought had been to go dusky blue , but after looking at this I reckon on a creamy lightly patterned fabric.
I am also looking for an outfit for youngest son’s wedding which is now approaching fast, like about a month off.
Knitting wise, the little bundle of white fluff now looks like this.
A little unicorn- it’s newborn which is why it can’t stand up yet!! And the sweetest face.
Of course I now have some leftover tinsel yarn…
The garden is keeping me busy again, always some weed to pull it seems to me.
Weekend plans include sewing the quilt blocks together ready for the next class, some baking and some gardening. Just nice puttering around the house.
Love to know your weekend plans, do please join in the natter.
