I had a very productive day on Saturday. Finally got my mojo going. Started by clearing up a bit in the sewing room. My cutting table suddenly appeared (just don’t ask where all the “stuff” that was on it is now!) and I’d forgoten that it’s soooooo long. Perfect for cutting borders for my Star Quilt for QAL 2020
They were all cut and attached to my quilt top. Then for the corners…….love it when a mitre comes out so easily
This isn’t a good pic – I’d taken it just to show my Friday friends meaning to take a proper one later……obviously that didn’t happen!
I also put borders on my “Gateaux” quilt top (nothing to do with QAL 2020!)
then pressed them both and took them off to the quilter on Monday, dropping them at Carol’s door and scampering away so I didn’t contravene the new isolation regulations. My QAL 2020 quilt is HUGE and as I have no-one to help me baste it, have left it for Carol to do then I can hand quilt it, and “Gateaux” has been left for Carol to machine quilt.
Also on Monday, we dropped a precious cargo of toilet paper off to Mum, leaving it on the shelving provided for resident drop-offs (she prefers a different brand than the one used there) and dropped off Poppet’s birthday presents, again leaving them at the door although I did ring the door bell and stood back to have a quick chat telling Poppet she wasn’t to open the gifts until Tuesday, her birthday. That remark was greeted with “Oh, what???”! She turned a big 6 and has started school……who knows when she’ll be going back.
It’s all still very surreal, isn’t it? After our outings on Monday, which included some fruit and veggie shopping, I felt a need to scurry back to our “burrow”, safe and protected by the four walls that are keeping danger out. Just weird.
Hope you’re all getting lots of stitching done too. Stay safe lovelies.
