The HD3QBEM and I had a day out today - she wanted clothes from her favourite shop and I wanted out of the City! We went down to Hamilton, around an hour and a half drive south of here. The weather was kind and we enjoyed our travels through the lush dairy farmland. Spring is a great time of year - calves, lambs, a thousand shades of new green on the trees, flowering cherries and we saw splendid samples of all today.
Ring O Roses needs 20 covered rings and 4 Dorset Buttons and I am only just half way. So guess what I will be doing tonight? On Thursday I went to the local quilting store to find lining for this project. The two shop assistants were deep in conversation with each other ignoring all customers, so I carefully studied all the red fabrics, ummed and aahed and eventually chose this one. As she was cutting off the piece I required, the assistant was congratulating herself on it being a wonderful match. Not that she had anything to do with the choice!!
I have three projects to take with me when we go on holiday on the 18th. One is a new name tag for Guild meetings. My current one is plain - very plain. My name in capitals stitched in blue floss on white linen. Other Guild members have beautiful tags with flowers, specialty stitches etc. As I was tidying out my bookshelves I came across a Name Tag chart in one of the files and promptly selected flosses and fabric. Such a small project shouldn't take too much time??
And I'm off to make the dinner.
