...getting overly excited about my new sewing caddy! I picked this nifty little box up recently for the princely sum of just over £2 and it's awesome! It comes with lots of little plastic tabs to make the compartments as big or small as you need, so I've managed to separate out most of my sewing machine feet, needles and the like which is making it a lot easier to hunt for things. I'm easily pleased, I know!
...re-assessing some fabric I bought back last year and deciding it had to be dyed because it's just not quite the right shade. Scary but fun...I'll do a full post on this in the next couple of days.
...having a family trip to Ledbury yesterday. It was our first time there so we had a bit of an explore and it's such a pretty market town! I also happened to notice that a wool shop will be opening there soon...!
...hooking away on my Sky Blanket (still!): last weekend I set myself the goal of getting it done. As you can probably guess by my lack of posts, this didn't happen, and I've been really annoyed with myself because of it. Each border row takes about two hours.....I think if I'd neglected all motherly and cooking duties I might have just managed it but alas, this was not allowed! So I'm still working away - on row five now - so not long to go, maybe next weekend?!
...signing up for the first issue of a new magazine - Love Quilting and Patchwork - which is due out in a couple of weeks. It looks really exciting and comes with a free Nikki Trench guide to quilting, which I think would be ideal for beginner quilters
I hope you've all had a lovely weekend and see you soon,
Today's sky ● grey and overcast. Blurgh!
