Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

One Thing Leads to Another...

Well, I am not having a productive day here, people - in fact every time I look longingly at my units ready to make up in the revealed blocks,  I have another thing crop up that I need to do.

I won't bore you with the domestic detail of the day, but suffice to say that I have mopped next-door's kitchen floor prior to their arrival back from holiday tonight (do not ask); took the opportunity to use their super duper vac at my house to do the whole lot tip to toe; rearranged the furniture in the front room (does everyone not do this, or just my family?); routine clean of everywhere else inc. washing, bathroom etc etc.

I have got to the machine though, in order to reposition the 'Hazel' on my vest for tomorrow's race - all the while muttering that if I'd have checked the rules properly before I started the endeavour, I would not be re-doing the job now.

I haven't even been round the world to see what you are all up - something I will do now, and my Mystery Quilt blocks will have to wait for tomorrow - after all, once I've run 13k (8.5 miles), I'm not going to be up to much else than sitting quietly in front of a sewing machine, am I?

    1. Busy, but frustrating - I didn't have enough time for the QAL.

  3. I'd be amazed you could even stare at the idiot box tv after running that much - you go girl!

    I read an article once that women move furniture to feel more in control of their surroundings. There have been times in my life when furniture moved often! LOL. Have a safe run.

    1. I didn't know that about moving round furniture! It's something mum used to do periodically when we were small - and I guess it rings the changes.

  6. Not sure what time the race is, but hope it went/goes well for you and the weather co-operates.

    1. Given that it rained solidly for ten days before and every day since, we were very fortunate - 16 degrees and the sun even came out at times to please the spectators!
