Thank you to all those who gave ideas for baby gifts. I have made a start and this patchwork ball is now complete. One thing I have learnt is that pentagons are not as easy to sew as hexagons. But this was all made from materials in my stash cupboard so that makes me happy and I hope the ball will make the baby and parents happy as well.
Only one more week of work and I can then start on my holiday list of things to do. The list now covers one A4 sheet of paper so I am not lacking in chores;-) I intend doing the spring cleaning, a small painting job on one of the windowsills and my summer sewing - all to be completed by the end of October. But top of the list and not defined as a chore is to tidy through my stash cupboard. I am excited about that and guess I will wake early on Saturday morning.
Tonight Hercule Poirot is to die (on our TV that is) and as the HD3BEM and I are both fans we will be watching that. A change from the excessive political analysis which fills all other channels as we are the day after general elections here in New Zealand. Some may be unhappy with the election results but I feel my vote counted and I prefer the colour blue (National Party) to red (Labour Party)!
