First official day of school holidays and I feel like I achieved quite a bit but there doesn't seem to be much to show for it. First I did some cutting and sewing for a round robin quilt but I can't show you coz it is for a Round Robin Quilt!
Next I did a bit more cutting out - 5 inch squares this time but you will have to wait a few days for me to show you what these are for.
I set myself up with a heap of cutting to do tonight as it was movie night - "Blood Diamond". My husband selected a bunch of movies for the boys and I to watch and I seriously hope he didn't think I would enjoy this one. Too much killing, nothing light hearted about it. All I cam say is that he is lucky it had a happy ending........sort of.
Anyway, first up I cut out a stack of feeders
Then I cut two stacks of tumblers for two different projects that I can't reveal right away,
And finally after the movie was over I managed to sew the binding on Bruce's quilt. Now I just need ot bury threads and hand sew the binding. Yay!
I have decided that I have had it with the DVD store! I don't know what my sons have and haven't seen and my husband's selections left something to be desired so I am going to the store tomorrow and i am going to buy a couple of TV series to watch - assuming Fly Boy will come with me. I can't choose on my own as I need to know what he has and hasn't seen! A couple of good TV series will keep us going for the holidays and is a small investment considering how much it would cost us to go to the movies a couple of times.
I would love nothing more than to stay home and sew tomorrow but I am toying with the idea of beginning my search for our new Christmas Trees, yes, I said trees! We used to have a lovely full 7ft tree that was almost two yards in diameter but I gave it to my cousin last year after Christmas as it was just too big for me to handle on my own. I have been thinking about it all year and have decided that I am going to buy a few tall but skinny trees which I will dot around the house - one in the family room, one in the lounge room and maybe one or two in the conservatory. If they are smaller I can decorate them one at a time by myself if I have to, including putting the lights on etc. My sisterhood friends usually come over and we make a night of it as I have a huge collection of decorations to hang. Every year though it gets harder to organise as everyone gets busy. I will feel better if I know I can manage it alone. So, I think tomorrow I will go and check out the local department stores which ALREADY have their Christmas displays up and see what is on offer.
Till next time....happy stitching!
