12 Days - Day 5

Another early morning trip down to the allotment  ...

I noticed yesterday that the blackberries were ready ... and last year I missed out, because someone kept stripping the plants bare ...

not this morning!


that amounted to 800 grams of blackberries, added to the remainder of last years berries, they have now been made into some lovely tarte blackberry jam!  Delicious!

And there's nothing that matches the intoxicating perfume of these  ...


A quick emergency trip to the dentist for the Diva, bless her, as suspected, the offending tooth was removed.  Better out, that's for sure  :)

I made good progress on Jean's quilt, in fact I am more than half way through the quilting ...


this is a big quilt, 80" x 94" 

And I moved onto my Scatty Christmas Stars ...

you know you're tired when ...


and this was the second lot of reverse sewing!

fortunately I got it right in the end!


At least I am caught up on this one now  :)

And whilst I think about it, the postman left some really good mail today ...

but I can't show that just yet  :) 

So, tomorrow?  I think I'd really like to get Jean's quilt finished, if I can, bobbins willing  :)

and  ...  and then, time permitting, I'd like to get caught up on the Brit Mystery Quilt Along ...


or at least make a good start as I have 3 weeks worth to catch up on! 

What plans afoot?  Well, haircut, and a trip to the cinema with the Teenage Diva  :) 

Progress so far ...  another successful day  :) 

But I am tired!

I'm not surprised your tired! Def another productive day!

Are they sweet peas??

Blackberries already! That's very early, isn't it? That block made me laugh because we have all done it but not all admit to it. Another successful (and exhausting) day for you then.

Another great day, apart from the dentist bit, can definitely empathise with that one! As for the didgy block, that is something I would never do (ha ha I wish!).

That block? Been there, done that (often). The worry is that I frequently don't even notice when I'm pressing the block, it takes a while before I realise what's wrong.

Oh Sweet Peas are one of my favs! I'm glad I'm not the only one who does random things with hsts!! Enjoy being pampered and taking time out today. Jxo

That block looks really complicated, tired or not!

I managed one (almost) finish in one day yesterday!
