.............I'm powfagged, I'm jiggered, I'm tired!
When I was a teenager my parents had a tape of a folk music group called the Fivepenny Piece. This was the first line of one of their songs. I've hunted on YouTube for a recording of it but can only find some of their other songs so short of inviting you all round for a rendition and a coffee I can't actually share the musical version with you.
However this is exactly how I feel now that we've broken up for the summer break - totally drained and exhausted.
Never mind - at least I don't have to go back to work until the 9th of September, a few days after the kids - hopefully this will give me the chance to recharge my batteries
I've been doing a little stitching but not my usual output - I feel very much like I'm not firing on all cylinders at the moment, hopefully a few more days chilling might rectify that
This is the completed top for my secret partner in the Miniature Booty Swap - I shall quilt it and then bind it in a blue plaid - it will be just a tad oversize, I had it planned to be spot on and then realised that all those greens together looked very drab and some skinny sashing was just what the quilt needed - hopefully my partner won't mind too much it is only a teeny bit over the top size guideline
And here is my Summer offering for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap - quilted and ready for the binding - I found my piece of the green I used for the stalks this morning, in and amongst the melee that is my sewing area, and I will endeavour to get the binding cut and on, possibly tonight, as it needs posting before the end of the month
Finally today the quilt I received for the Another Little Quilt Swap from Lisa-Jo in Colorado - the postcard she sent with it was of such awesome mountain scenery that I've put Colorado on my 'Must visit' list - sometime whenever :o)
I love this lilac triangle quilt - so unlike anything I'd do myself - you all know my aversion to triangles!
I should have also taken a picture of the pincushion I received from Lynda's swap - I'll save that one for next time, I've signed up for her bag and bucket swap too - a definite glutton for punishment!
I started last night to do a little bit of the applique for my centre of the next Spring Fling round robin - I'd like it to turn out a little like Dutch Delft Ware - I'll share a sneak peak of that with you next time :o)
