Just had to cancel plans to go down to London tonight to have a meal with some friends.The forecast is for light snow and/or freezing rain . No thanks......had a bit of a nightmare getting home Thursday evening after work so dont want to risk that.
I have been to the hairdressers......so all dressed up and nowhere to go....so to speak.
As consolation I have sent Herb into town to buy some wine and goodies and we shall settle in with this box set. I have watched Don Draper from the start but Herb just didn't bother with it. He moaned like hell when I put it on last night then watched four episodes back to back. Me thinks he is hooked!
Anyhow hardly a hardship. ..we can go another time.
The garden still looks like this.....very very pretty but not when it spoils something I WAS REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO!
Fingers crossed its gone by next weekend. I'm having a girly trip up north with my sister to visit the girls. Can't wait to see them.
Finished the quilt top yesterday.....still not happy with the blue solid bit but overall I like the effect. I do like very busy quilts. Some, but not all, of the Kaffe Fassett and Philip Jacobs fabric in quilts are amazing.
I am also really taken by some traditional quilts especially the red and white ones.
So have started a little bit of hand sewing......foundation piecing or i think its sometimes called English paper piecing. I have made it harder for myself by splitting the diamonds but I really like the effect.
not sure what it will develop into, but its good to have some hand sewing for when I can watch a good movie.....this afternoons offering is a, saved for a snowy afternoon Rock Hudson drama(you know the one where he marries the women he knocked over ....love it)
happy weekend one and all x
