Brrrrrrr - when will it ever warm up?

So, as I so often do, let's start with last night.  I am cracking on with the Lynette Anderson Scissor case and have almost finished the outside - just some bird features and the top of the jar to go.  Next stop - the three larger applique shapes inside and then I can start to put it all together.

Today was the Senior Screen and we went to see Jackie. I am not quite sure what to say about it - other than I don't agree with the rave reviews.  Slow?  Yes?  Bad? No.  Good?  Not sure.  Ah well, we have seen it now so will chalk it up and move on.

Next up was a visit to Tesco's for the weekly shop.  Jean had some questions re Slimming World and so I hope that I was able to sort her out and put her on the right pathway.  I have to say that we are still suffering, on the east coast, with this cold weather (I even thought about putting my coat over my knees in the cinema!) and so braving the weather to walk the dogs should win me a medal!!  However it's nice to get out and have some fresh air - not to mention the exercise.

By the time I got home it was time to get ready for tonight's sewing class.  I have sorted out the front panel and the backing but needed to "patchwork" together the wadding.  Sadly my joining tape ran out and so had to resort to the zigzag stitch method, but, hey, I didn't need to go out and buy anymore so have saved a few pennies!
