I had my Friday Night Lock-in at the Local Quilt Shop with Polly, which was a great laugh. Anyone who falls about laughing at Jewellery fixings is fine by me. (Ball ends.) Polly made a bag, start to finish one night. I managed 2 quilt blocks... Still, there was pizza and cuppas AND chocolate. Bet you wish you could come too! I managed to get out without taking half the shop with me again (sorry Polly!) but I did spy a must-have notion I'm going back for...

How clever is that! Shall be cheating a bit during a certain someones bag-along...
Since I cant show you the blocks I've been making (more secret stuff, sorry) I CAN show you the wonderful blocks that have come in so far for my long long awaited Spiders Web Quilt! Check these beauties out.
How lucky am I? I am getting so excited about these blocks!
My mans leave at home will be coming to an end sometime soon, which I'm preparing for by having unfinished sewing projects lying around waiting for me wherever I look. (Thats the excuse anyway!) Given that the kitchen and dining cupboard are one room really, all I need to do is put a project in the bathroom and I'll have occupied every room in the house... All lavvy project suggestions on a postcard... I think I might be due an almighty crash when he goes, I'm getting more dozy by the hour. Hope I can hold if off for a week or so! Already in the last week I've had hallucinations, falling asleep whilst talking, and have apparently offended someone online with my god awful memory. At one point the other day I was sitting on the sofa with my man chatting then in my head I was utterly convinced I was back in the house I grew up in with my brother, accusing him of eating all the christmas cake. My man is used to such nonsense, but honestly, when I came round I was gutted! Almost cried cos my brother wasn't there. (no christmas cake either...) So, take note, if you are dealing with me and I ask the same thing repeatedly, or seem blunt, or dont show up for skype dates, or forget to reply to an email, or forget your real name / screen name etc I am apologising now. Its nowt personal, and really, I'm not that bad a lass, just a tired one!
There's a wonderful article in the Guardian (click here) which, if you have time to look, will tell you all the same stuff I tell you about. I cant begin to tell you how much of a relief it is for me to read it, even if only to hear that all the crazy crap happens to other people too! However, I would advise you not to look at the comments on the article. I wish I hadnt.
