Dancing last night was not quite as energetic as the previous time, lots of dances we did not know, we learnt a couple of new ones which was good.
A bright morning, sun shing pity I have no laundry to dry......OH retired to bed with a dizzy, the first for a while.
I had a kitchen morning. Used up some baby tomatoes from the garden which I had frozen to make tomato and bacon sauce for tonights pasta. I also gently stewed the rhubarb from yesterday and along with some apple and raspberries made the base for a crumble which I will cook later on.
My friend phoned to find out if I was going quilting this afternoon, she is having trouble with the binding on a quilt, so will go for a while. I have nothing on the burner just now. Its the fair this weekend so we concentrated on filling lavender bags at the weekend. We need to spend an hour or so on Sarurday pricing the stuff up and getting the bags ready. We know where our stall is going to be, we have the walls behind us with arcitrave which will be very useful to hang things on. I am taking a few cards, OH is going to make an advertisment for personalised cards lie the one I made for K's neice for her 50th birthday. I forgot to take a photo of it, typical!!
Tonights supper, tomato and bacon pasta with garlic bread, apple rhubarb and raspberry crumble for dessert, it should last us a couple of nights at least.
We had a wonderful sunset the other night....
I am a quilterrecently moved from Scotland back to a village in Leicestershire. Married with 4 children and 1 stepson,at the last count we had 13 grandchildren.
I started quilting in the 80's making a quilt for my youngest daughter. I started taking lessons in the late 90's and have been going strong ever since.
I enjoy reading and also gardening, so quilting tends to take a bit of a back seat in the summer.
We love France, would love to have lived there, but 3 tries all came to naught so now we visit when ever we can.
I have been interested in The Amish since I was a teenager, admire the way they live and stick to what they believe in.I love their hand quilting, I wish mine was as good!!
