...yesterday was this..
..and it tasted even better than it looks..!!
I didn't get a photo of us all (I think about 50 something) standing outside with our vanilla slices! All holding them up to make a huge line down the road, but the photographer from the local paper was there and I hear the photo will be in next week, so I'll show you then! After tea and cake some of us trooped next door to Millrose Quilt shop for a sit and sew in Sue's fabulous room. A huge cup and saucer sat on the counter for donations for the Cancer Society and the day was well worth the donations I made...
..ladies knitting, crocheting, sewing on the machine and hand sewing of course..
..how could you not have an amazing day when you are surrounded by this..
..new bolts of fabric waiting to be catalogued and put away..
...and here's Karen..
..she's trying to get her quilt quilted before she heads off on her adventurous holiday trecking Italy in a few weeks (nurses tape makes good line markers obviously?).
Did you notice that I've changed my header -again! I know, I know, you just get used to one and I change it again....sigh! But I've been doing a mini course with Kim Klassen, I love textures, really I do.....
Right, I'm off to stitch the yellow and red balls on the Christmas tree on my Crimson Tweed quilt and then guess what...? The top will be finished...!!! I sat yesterday and stitched the tiny aqua dots on the holly leaves and then the last 60 red berries on at the sit and sew. Borders are finished just got that tree to finish (velvet baubles, fun) and then I can sandwich and quilt....! I'm ridiculously excited!!
Back to the docs tomorrow and probably more antibiotics I think. My leg is improving but so, so slowly. Still infected and very, very tender. I'm over it now, really I am, I just want it better and get on with things......
