Nigel has been busy at work until very late last night (about 3am) and again this morning - the D Day for switching on the big new accounts software package and making sure it plays nicely with the warehouse has arrived. So last night I had time to play a little in peace and quiet
Here is the progress on my bright spotty stars
And all the central blocks done for the plaid flowers
I have to confess the plaid flowers have been laid out on the living room rug since earlier this week and I've just growled repeatedly at anyone of the younger generation who trampled over them without looking where they were going
I guess I really ought to stitch them together and get them up off the floor before they get damaged :o) then I'll decide on borders
It was also Megan's birthday this week - Sarah's friend who joins in with the Monday teatime sewing sessions - here are the birthday card and huge badge that Sarah made for her. I have to confess I chickened out and bought a nice pair of silver and aquamarine earrings.
And finally - good luck England tonight against France - I've got fingers and everything else crossed for you boys!
Well it's now about 10.20pm and ..................WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!! England are through to the Rugby World Cup Final next Saturday against either South Africa or Argentina - tonight's match didn't do much for the old blood pressure though!!! Well done boys - you did us proud!
