Glitz and glamour

Last night, at the sewing group, we have finally started to reach the end stages of a quilt that we started last September.  I now have 21 of these large blocks to make, then sew them all together and quilt - with a load of free motion quilting - yikes!  Of course, some blocks will be rejects so the final size will depend upon how many are useable!

This morning was spent doing housework - well, Jean is coming round later to look after the dogs so it can't be toooooo bad - filling up with diesel and organising some future dates.  My brother retired yesterday so I was arranging a lunch date in February as a catch up and Wendy had found a felting workshop that she was interested in so I booked that for us.

By lunchtime, it was time for a feet up (well that was the medical instruction wasn't it?), some tv catch up and some sewing (well I won't get any done tonight and I only have 6 days left to finish this Anni Downs UFO quilt), before getting ready to travel to see Strictly - the live tour.  It's a round trip of about 4 hours, and we won't get home until gone midnight, but it's worth it!  I am taking Paula who has never been before and is beyond excited.  I am looking forward to seeing it through her eyes!
