Testosterone Free Zone

Last Sunday we managed a rarity in the Bebbington household
Sarah had no rugby
Nick had football playing his match at Frome (rhymes with Broom) right over on the other side of Somerset and Nigel was playing taxi driver - they won 8 - 4 - hurray! and both got soaked to the skin for their trouble!
So we managed a girly afternoon..........
Mum was doing a mad 'quilt in one day' construction for her ALQS2 effort
Lou was keeping herself occupied with a little stitching of her own
And Sarah was keeping her nose firmly to the Geography coursework grindstone
A veritable testosterone free zone
And the result of all this peace, perfect peace?
One 20" square present for my ALQS2 partner a long way from Taunton
p.s. I must confess I finished stitching down the binding on Monday morning so it wasn't strictly a quilt in a day - however at least I got it into the post on time :o)

That is fantastic...and in your previous post I can completely understand about the stall, craft stallls can be great or ordinary for no rhyme or reason..and now you are so organized for the next one! I would have bought, I love MY Bebbs original! Tracey

Fiona said...

I can't believe you made that in just a day! Commiserations on the craft fair front - they're always a bit of a lottery.
