We're in the middle of our final Bank Holiday weekend before Christmas - boy does this make it seem like a really long haul up to the festive season. I do envy you American ladies your Thanksgiving holiday break.
Down here in the South West the weather is absolutely steaming (well for England anyway) and to be honest I've been feeling not altogether 100%, probably because I'm so tired after the past week taxi driving and hosting various sleepover visitors - I actually went back to bed twice yesterday and slept both times. So we've plumped for a home based lazy weekend. The traffic gets so bad as all the lemmings head for the coast that it's best to stay off the roads.
Just the opportunity to get a bit of stitching in.
These brown things on my Autumn quilt do bear a striking resemblance to paint blots but in the fullness of time they will be oak leaves - I plan to machine trapunto them. They would look a whole lot better even at this stage if I introduced them to an iron actually. :o)
I had a little play the other day with the lovely fabrics that Juliann sent me
Having spent the last week using it with no fastener and having to retrieve the contents from the bottom of my handbag every now and then, I was relieved when Nigel found some velcro out in the garage so I could finish it off and enjoy it to its full potential.
