Hello Dear Peeps! How are you? Anyone taking advantage of lifted/eased restrictions? It’s all much the same here at p&c; I was able to take Mum to a medical appointment last week albeit masked and sanitised to within an inch of our lives but measures I’m very grateful for in keeping Mum safe. Although we couldn’t touch each other, it was lovely to be able to talk face-to-face (or mask-to-mask!). As I’m taking her again this week I’m keeping myself to myself.
The Golfer is extremely pleased that he can now get out on the course (as am I!). Although no-one played well on their first day back they did have fun and from the tee #1 hit his ball straight down the middle, as usual, #2 hit his off to the right, as usual and my Golfer hit his left, as usual – social distancing? Not a problem!
Progress is being made on the sewing front. Quilting on my star QAL is coming along nicely. I have until the end of the month to get this one finished so better keep going.
Pleased to report my “Rocks and Whetstones” top is finished. Sat all day for virtual class and stitched the final sashings in place; it’s a long way across this quilt by hand – 76″
there’s nowhere big enough/light enough to put it out in full so you’ll just have to make do with these odd pics
loving that I was able to keep – mostly – to the softer palette
stretched my boundaries in keeping it soft
I’ve decided it needs a border so ordered this from thequiltshop which I think will do nicely. Will just have to wait
impatiently for it to arrive.
Been a bit slower on the “Message in a Bottle” front; vase, leaves and stems are done, just doing the flowers now. And all this stitching has been done with a revisit to “The Good Wife” (bought myself the box set on sale a couple of years ago) and well into Season 2.
What have you been watching/listening too while stitching?
