Hey - guess what?

Well - I am still here so I guess that code was wrong.  Sewingbuddy is right when she says that you should be able to see an engraved picture but since it was so tiny I thought that the code was a more sensible way of checking.  Turns out that the code has to start with AM32 not the AM52 that I had!  Ah well - for a moment there ......

Today I woke up feeling strange, achey, very cold and totally off my food - not like me at all (it soon came back!!)!  I got up and it was difficult to walk around - but fortunately it wore off after an hour or two.  At Scamblesby yesterday one of our group came over poorly so I am wondering if there's a bug going around.  Needless to say I pushed through and toddled off to church but I have to admit that the dogs had a shorter than usual walk - although they bounded around with plenty of energy still!

Once home and in the warm - it is really windy, overcast and cold here - it was back to the SS quilt.  By the end of the afternoon, I am pleased to say that we now have a whole quilt ready to receive its binding and hanging sleeve.  I wouldn't normally do a hanging sleeve since this is going on a bed but I will need this quilt next year for our Church's "Material Memories" event.  Since we have a number of pillars, we are hoping to hang the quilts with thick wooden dowling which goes from one pillar to the next - looking a little like a medieval castle with flags hanging down!  well - that's the idea anyway!

Tonight?  Well I need to sort out the fabric for the Textile Group - we are starting a  mystery Christmas wall hanging - block one tomorrow, block 2 next term etc.


  1. Looks fabulous well done,
    and if you had the fiver with Jane Austen on would it have changed anything- I think not , you would have still been trying to finish that quilt by Tuesday, lol!

  2. Lol Sewing Buddy, I reckon you've got that right!
    Hope the bug doesn't take hold.

  3. Congratulations on getting the Splendid Sampler quilt completed Lynda! You have done a lovely job.... it is beautiful! Hope you are feeling better! Christine x

    1. Thankyou - yes I am. Just have to add the binding now!
