well, actually one confession to make - i started off the week with all good intentions to get some of my projects completed -laid out my fabrics i had finally decided on
checked the pattern i was to use (pic above)
and that was on sunday - and thats all i have achieved!
i did get sidetracked by finishing off a little handquilted baby quilt
it was lovely just to sit and quilt- however the confession is that the last two nights i have been so hot and tired i have just vegged out in front of the tv watching old movies! how bad is that, in the middle of summer, when i should be outside doing stuff - i did feel guilty! i would add that i had been outside nearly all day, what with trying to do the garden (weed alert!) and the animals (who by the way hate hot weather as the flies drive them nuts!). but all the same, its summer!
why is it that in the middle of winter when i'm soaked to the skin and freezing i have this image of sitting in the garden quietly stitching, time standing still. the reality never quite seems to match up! the minute i sit down someone either wants me, or i get besieged by flies!
hey ho, never mind, i'm not really whingeing (oh no, i hear you say!) just wondering why things never turn out as one plans!
the only two who are quite happy to chill out on hot days are the dogs - they have no guilty qualms at all!
off outside now to poo pick - gosh i have such fun!!!
