My Lady of the Lake blocks are nearly all set together - I will resist the temptation to show you yet. I am so pleased with it so far. Thanks to Vicki who suggested the dark red for the setting triangles. I don't think I would have thought of that but you know what - she was spot on. After trying loads of different colours and variations I came to the concusion that red it was. I had just about enough to cut them all out with just a tiny scrap to spare. Don't you just love it when that happens ?
I had a busy week last week as I wanted to finish all the work I had in for various customers as the kids are off school this week and I like to get it all out of the way if I can. So this week will be a bit more relaxed. Actually don't think I will see much of Jess as she is in LURVE !! She is 17 and I don't think I'm being too biased by saying she is a pretty girl. From about age 14 she has had different boys asking her out but she has never bothered with any of them. But when she started college a few weeks ago a certain young mans name kept getting mentioned and bingo..... The pair of them are absolutely smitten - sweet !!! He seems to be here quite a lot and because he doesn't live in our town good old mum keeps getting roped into driving him home. He is a nice lad though and I don't mind - both I and Jason approve of him !!
Also I have been doing a little knitting. As the weather has been getting colder I have realised that I do not have any nice scarves to keep my neck warm. The prices in the shops are absolutely ridiculous - I'd want a pair of shoes for the money they're charging - lol ! So I've bought some wool and finished one last night. Nice and easy and best of all - cosy. I've already started on another and I may even make some for pressies. My mum especially has a thing for scarves.
Mum has just asked me to make a little baby quilt for my aunties step-daughters baby who has been born this weekend prematurely. I don't know the parents but apparently they have had a bad time trying for a baby - they had one still-born last year. So sad !! Anyway this little one is 11 weeks early and weighs 3lbs and I think is doing well... You see the fishy fabric in the above photo - I may use some of that. My mum said just something simple would do so I will get that done this week with a bit of luck.
Got to go and start making our evening meal now - what a nuisance - lol !!
