... through no fault of my own, I've been a little absent,
you see I've had this lurgie, you know the one, flu like symptoms, cough, head from hell, bedridden,
but I persevered and went to work, like a stupid woman that I am!
I tried quilting, but I only have to go and unpick that now,
so yesterday I felt like I just had a head cold, so I ventured out to the bottom of the garden
if only to stroke fabric,
and in my search for just the right Amy Butler fabric for a friend I happened upon a UFO languishing in a box, all ready to play with!
and what do you know ... behold ... another top now ready for quilting!
and look closely, you see one empty box too!
and a book ready to return to the shelf!
well, lets face it, when you still feel crap after a whole week of it, a little mindless sewing of 16 blocks and a border is just the ticket!
Actually I'm thrilled I could even sew!
and then I decided I should catch up on some of the Quick Curve Ruler blocks too ...
I was challenged, to say the least, these rail fences did not want to play nicely!
and the prospect of more curves today was just too much.
so I opted for some simple Broken dishes blocks as a trial run for a commission I really must finish soon!
I really rather like these!
today the postman called, with the centre fabric that is supposed to be for my Christmas quilt that is on my FAL Q1 list,
sadly, it is not what I thought, but I have decided to go ahead and use it anyway in the interest of getting the damn thing done, so the rest of the cutting is now complete at least = progress
but, as the lurgie still insists on being a body snatcher, I.m back under 3 quilts and the duvet
in the vein hope it will be gone and I can feel human again, with a little more energy,
after all, it cant stay here forever, surely!
And I do need to get on with 'the list' rather than just fannying about stroking and playing with fabric!
