However much I might moan about a minimum order for Creative Grids, I can't fault their service. I phoned on the Monday and they fished out my un-paid for order which I'd tried to place on-line, took my payment details, and I had the rulers delivered in the post on Thursday.
I must say that it is MUCH EASIER using a small ruler to trim the half-square triangles, and I have just ten left to trim, and them I am done this step.
It's been extremely warm for the past few days - and certainly too hot for my other hobby, or going for a run, or house cleaning, pushing the vac round etc etc, , and I really didn't fancy quilt-wrestling with the concentric triangles on Mum's Quilt.
So on Sunday I dug out a very old skirt pattern and knocked this little number up from what used to be a curtain. It is the easiest pattern in the world (three pieces!), but I've never been an avid clothes maker, and it is probably twenty years since I last made anything, so I am pleased that it (a) fits and (b) looks ok.
Next challenge - turning a long sleeve T-shirt with a bleach-mark on the sleeve into a short sleeve T-shirt...
Ditto - More of the same. This is for the final linkup of Hands 2 Help. Thanks, Sarah. My quilts have gone to the Happy Chemo charity. That's it. Busy wee...
