Almost missed posting this – we've had a buy day today. Catherine and I bowled in a competition which started at 9.30 this morning. It was a lovely relaxed affair and we really enjoyed it. While that was going on Matthew was playing a football match (they won this week – yeh!) I had another game of bowls left to play when John came to pick Catherine up to go to kayaking – phew! what a busy Sunday. We've just come back from a lovely meal out altogether, it's been a really lovely day and the sun has shone as well 😀
I've not stitched the little snail on yet – I'm seriously thinking of giving this quilt a wash once it's complete as there are a few pencil lines that I need to get rid of and it won't be good to wash it with the lovely buttons in place. Now – there is a HUGE mistake on this stitching, quite funny really and I did notice before it was too late but I decided to leave it as it is…what is it though?
I think it's not too obvious really and I decided that it didn't matter. When I was tracing the pattern, I was thinking how feint it was showing through the fabric this time…the reason for that was because I had the pattern the wrong side up so my tracing is back to front, lol! I think it makes for a unique quilt! I'll be having some time with the sewing machine tomorrow to put its Courthouse steps on and then this can go into the box with the other 3 blocks.
I spent a lot of time with a Scandinavian Christmas block yesterday – it isn't finished, there is a HUGE amount of stitching in those blocks…maybe sometime this week it'll be completed.
