We had planned to go out but clearly that was off the cards. Instead I used my time to tidy around and then finish the needle turn block. The actual month one block is larger but it involves cutting pieces of fabric and the sewing machine - I had only brought down the materials to complete the needle turn so must leave it for now.
The next piece of excitement was a large parcel arriving for Mum and Dad - I strongly suspect that it's presents from one of my brothers. All of the males in the family support Leicester City - but he's the worst. Given their extraordinary rise to fame ( they are top of the premier league at the moment, having been bottom this time last year in case you've escaped the hype) I strongly suspect that the present will have a Leicester City link!!
I let Millie out into the garden today - not realising that Dad had left the gate wide open. Cue a look around the village before spotting a brown lab streaking up and down the street going to say hello to whoever she could find - including a cage of birds I might add. Eventually she came back without too much of a fuss but before I could congratulate her too much( ahem) there was a knock at the door - she had gone through a neighbours garden and the neighbour had come around to complain and tell us that she was frightened of dogs. Dad had to apologise and explain that it was truthfully his fault for leaving the gate open. Do you ever get the feeling that it's going to be one of those days? Meanwhile Millie is totally oblivious to the chaos that she has caused!
Next update is re the duvet set. Ponder Mills have been fantastic in their communications - the issue is with Yodel who have been overwhelmed with the deliveries - hence the delay. Ponden Mills have now refunded the postage and are trying to contact Yodel to arrange a delivery time ( I had said that we were out all day today!)
Craftwise - on the agenda today is blanket stitching one of The Quilter Lives here blocks. I will finish it,I will finish it , I will ..........
