I love going opshopping, especially when I can find things like these magazines for 20c each! Just in case I need something else to do, you see 🙂 There were a lot of Homespun ones which is great since I don’t have many of those. I’ve often picked up the Handmade or Patchwork & Quilting for $2 each, but this was just too good to ignore.
I went to the doctor’s yesterday to get some more happy pills to keep me happy…. it took almost two hours of waiting for a five minute appointment. I forgot to bring a book, so I quickly ducked into Big W and did what any other sane person would do – bought a crochet hook and a ball of cotton. I got white cotton, 4ply, and a 2.50mm hook to add to my collection, and used the time wisely to start a new project:
It’s going to be a table cloth topper thingy… you know…. to put on top of a table cloth in the middle…..
Today I tidied the house, did heaps of ironing, and snuck in my first block for the “One a day Quiltalong”. I am going to use the same light blue for each block, with the other four squares a different color. Here is my first one:
Why am I starting something else again???? Because this is only one a day and I have lots of 2 1/2″ squares that need to be used up. Imagine that, using up scraps! And it didn’t take long to make one ninepatch. I am not “catching up”, however. If I miss a day, I’ve missed it. I’m not too fussed about how big it is going to be. I just like the idea that even if I have a busy day, I might be able to sit down for 5 minutes and at least get one block done.
Now, I really must not start anything else new until I finish some more things…. 🙂 I will be good, I will be good……. at least I will try! I forgot to take a photo of the apron I finished for Mum for Mother’s Day. Must ask Dad to do that, and then I can at least post one finished project. That makes up for one of the new ones I have started, doesn’t it? I think so 🙂
Hope you are all having a great week!
