Well I've made a start on my outer dark borders.
Yesterday morning before work I cut out the four long strips and made lots of bias tubing in a pale green fabric - I did think about doing the tubing in all random greens but decided that it would look just too contrived so plumped for the same fabric for the bias and then I'll do the rest of the applique scrappy.
Last night life just kept getting in the way of the stitching!
DD1 has started her first paid job working at the local swimming pool as a Swim Assistant helping in the water with all the little learners. She did 5 til 6.30 yesterday so needed the services of 'Mum's Taxis'. Also before she headed off for work I had to help her fill in all her accompanying forms.
Then once she'd returned from work and we'd had tea, DH and I headed off to the supermarket - why do my children perpetually insist on emptying the food cupboards? What do they think it's there for - to eat!!!
Of course Nigel and I always go on the most romantic outings - an evening run to the supermarket - we might not have much money but we do see life :o)
Hopefully tonight I'll get a good deal more done!
