Cast and Crew
The Golfer:: My loving husband of some 20 years (yes, I was a child bride!), who likes nothing better than flogging a little white ball around the green fairways (and hopefully not getting into the rough) of his local golf course.
Ma & Pa Kettles:: My parents who live in the country, fondly known as The Kettles. Sadly my gorgeous Dad died in 2015, so it’s just Mum now.
MyDearFIL & MIL:: The Golfer’s Dad & Mum who have now both passed away.
LittleBigBrother:: My brother who is younger than me, but at 6 foot, definitely bigger than me!!
DocSisterInLaw:: LittleBigBrother’s wife (who has a Doctorate!)
Poppet:: My beautiful niece, and daughter of LittleBigBrother and DocSisterInLaw
(blis) n. 1. perfect happiness; serene joy
Obviously the collective noun for a group of stitchers!!
- Just finished a lovely video chat with @henderfischer and @figtreelass who asked how my #daisydaystemplates blocks were coming along. Had a quick count and only need another 19! Will finish what I have cut out then it’s cut, cut, cut for 19 more (putting this on Instagram so I can remember how many more I need 😂😂😂) #saturdayafternoonstitching #stitchingwithfriends #handpiecing #mereditheclarktemplates #mereditheclarksignaturecollectionFinished my “Zinnia” quilt top on Saturday so well in time for today’s deadline in @patchwork_inspirations and @ateliercocopatch #qal2021 which this year is “curves”. As a juxtaposition I’ve chosen a squares backing! Need to get it ready to be basted before I start on #bigstitchquilting #handpiecing #curvedpiecingI’d love to be joining in with @barefootcrafter for #saturdaynightcraftalong but I picked up a spatula that was too close to the flame and ouch!!! Ice, red wine and chocolate are helping but l want to be stitching 😢🥺 🧊🍷🍫It’s Poppet’s 7th birthday very soon and when I saw this quilt kit @thequiltshop just had to have it as the little girl looks so like our gorgeous niece. But doing this machine quilting has reminded me (swipe right) why I loathe doing it 😖 #abbysgardenfabric #iloathemachinequikting #tryingtofindthecalm
