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.
