With long sunshiny and hot days, summerholidays went by faster than i wished for.
Too hot too quilt and some days too hot to do anything but sit in the garden with a book and a cold drink and trying to keep the blackbirds from the grapes. I really want to eat some myself this year!
There were other things to "entertain"myself. I took baking DD's Phone over. Omg, it's a SMARTphone. I came a long way from my old Nokia with which i could only make a call and send a textmessage to this HTC. It took me at least a week before I managed to answer an incoming call.Ofcourse, personalising the "new to me" Phone was a big deal: I did not only order one, but two cases. The left one is very appropriate for me struggling and polka dots just had to be!
So I plunged into the world of jersey needles and twin ones and took a trip to the market with DD for knitfabric. She had a pattern for a "30minute pencilskirt", but we had to modify, wrestle with the twin needle and ofcourse most of the afternoon went by by searching items, misplaced by ...yes, by me.
After DD left, I had this
Last but not least: Quilting DD and I will be hopping on a plane coming thursday to Birmingham!!!!
We're going to The Festival of Quilts for the second time. I'm só looking forward to that trip!
