Here it was a weekend of preparedness: a finishing things off and getting things ready kind of a weekend. An admiring the quilt blocks and thinking about how to put them together weekend, a finishing off the crochet blanket and planning another one weekend. And a rehearsal for the school Autumn Concert weekend and a going to the drop in flu vaccination clinic weekend. Preparedness, see?
September was my month for receiving quilt blocks from the members of Fiona's Friendship Quilt group. I have five now, each and every one a pleasure to open and lay out and look at and enjoy. Look, there's Abi's lovely printed linen (with her hand drawn card) and Jacky's clever, clever piecing and Deb Turtle's oh-so-pretty house (and you can see more photos on her blog here) and Beverly's beautifully neat points. Our other Deb sent the one I showed here a couple of weeks back . Now to plan how I'll put them together.
And my other bit of preparedness? Here I am, that's Me On Monday, sorting wool for a new crochet blanket. I posed it up today, for everyone who saw my photo of the Christmas hamper catalogue and said hamper was a funny word. That would be everyone across the Pond! There you go, that's a hamper. It's pretty nice with wool in it, but it was even better when it was full of Christmas treats. ..
|Sorting my Stylecraft to make a Granny square blanket to go with these cushions|
My plan is to have a few Granny Squares finished by the end of this week. How about you? Any plans for the week? Last Monday Becky, Helena, Theresa, Sandra, Deb, Ruth, Abi, Fiona, Denise, Kirsty, Doris, Ladkyis and Susanne all went Me On Monday. If you fancy giving it a go too, give me a wave. And have a great week.
