Another week !

Thank you all so much for the good wishes for my birthday - another year older, another year wiser....Or just actually older - lol !! I had a nice day and with my birthday money I started saving for my old age - ha !! No I bought some fabric. That warehouse I go to really is having some good stuff in lately and so cheap. I can't keep away...


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 !!

Great photo's, now a couple of those fabrics you've just purchased would mix well with the ones I got for Hollie's bag...lol.... Love the scarf, can't knit to save myself..... Look forward to seeing your LOTL finished.

Terrific new fabrics! Can't wait to see the LOTL quilt top all together.

What a nice haul from the warehouse, no wonder you want to keep going back. The daughter and boyfriend make a good-looking couple; what it is to be Young, sigh.
Pictures of the LOTL as soon as it's finished, please.

Love your new fabrics. Such a nice photo of your daughter and her new friend. The scarf is looking great. I can NOT knit at all, but I admire anyone who can. Can't wait to see your Lady Of The Lake.

Love your fabrics...good buying. That will be lovely if you make that tiny babe a quilt. You are busy what with the scarf knitting as well.

I just love that little fish fabric - I had some of the darker blue version of it and loved it - used up every little scrap and wish I had more!

The photo of your daughter and her BF made me smile - our eldest started going out with her first about this time last year (there have been a few since) and we've always had an open house policy for our kid's friends - at least if they're hanging round our house we know where ours are - ok it can be costly in extra food stocks (teenagers have hollow legs especially lads) and taxi service but at least you know who they're with and what they're up to that way. Lovely scarf and these sort of wools knit up so quickly. Hope the teeny baby is ok - modern medicine is amazing these days
