Now , I know that some of you out there may think that I just idle my time away, eating chocolate and thinking of George. But no! I have not been idle. Since the sad (well not really) demise of the afternoon job I have been finishing all those UFOs lurking in various cupboards and drawers. I have made, in no particular order – 9 cushions – the pictures of which you have seen, a million (some) napkins to go with the jars of delight for sale at Christmas, 69 odd name labels for the ACL’s sailor boys and a baby quilt of which I don’t have a picture because I was too rubbish to get my act together and take one (and the fabrics weren’t my choice and I didn’t like it much..). Oh yes and a cosy toes sleeping bag thingy for the smallest baby girl’s pushchair.
Next on the list was The Child’s long awaited quilt and yes folks, it is finished. Not sadly in time for the coldest snap since time immemorial (I’m not that together), but by yesterday, just in time for it to warm up and for him to sweat to death…
And here it is
It’s nothing fancy but he likes it and that’s all that matters. His friend Tom also likes it and wants one too. For his birthday. On the 20th. No pressure then! Why can’t they be like normal 17 year old boys and be into girls and booze. Oh, hang on. They are!!
Back to the sewing machine.
