One of the books I ordered from Amazon came through. At the moment this one is beyond me But it has ideas in that I want to aim at to make quilts for the youngest two grandchildren for Christmas. Plenty of time to get to that level as I am starting with the basics. The book cost me all of five pence from an American book shop so too good a price to not invest it even though I do not need it just yet. But I felt time I was at the stage for it I may not find it as cheap again.
SIL is back and work and Bob is back at gymnastics so back on the gymnastics run. So I went into the library across the road took my laptop and did some blog and Instagram commenting. Home and put jacket potatoes in the microwave for tea and did a 25 minute work out.
It has been rather wet here meaning everywhere is muddy and there is no where to take the dog she can get a run off of her lead that does not involve fields. I would not say she was spoilt ( much anyway....lol) so after her walk she has been dumped in the kitchen sink to rinse her clean, hubby then dries her with a towel and the hair dryer. She was scared of the hair dryer when we first got her but now she is ok about it.
Did some sewing, quite pleased with how the quilting is going, and managed a workout while tea was cooking.
This weaning myself of the bingo sites on the computer is good for the house, I cleared out all the bedroom drawers and my big kitchen cupboard. Which is also good for me psychologically as I feel much better doing something constructive.
It was Winds day here all day, the sort of wind that Pooh Bear would have been flying Piglet by his
scarf Sorry just a bit of light hearted fun.
It was far to windy for DD1 to try and walk the twins safely along the main road while battling with a pram to take them to nursery, so I went down and took them and then picked them back up. I was leaving the village around that time to do some shopping anyway.
It was the sort of day we thought we may lose the fence so hubby tied it to the clothes pole, then we thought it may get pulled over but they both survived this storm. Thankfully we did not get the snow they predicted for us but it was not a nice day.
Today was a snowy day. DD1 brought the children up for a visit as an excuse for them to go out and play in the snow. They played with the jigsaw and lotto game they got for Christmas. Then as I was sat on the floor the two of them sat on my legs and we played all fall down,basically they threw themselves backwards, lots of giggles were had especially when I tickled their tickley bits. Slightly cheating here as hubby took the photo but don't tell anybody.
Every Jan hubby changes the batteries in the smoke detectors, no chance of them running out then. Did my third workout of the week. Been doing HIIT this week.
I have been putting in an hour or more of sewing every day this week. Really enjoying doing it, and like the cross stitching I find it pleasantly relaxing. I made these four and have framed them with the green. I am thinking I will make a plus sign shape out of triangles and then patterned squares round the edge from the same patterns to join the four of them together Hope to share that with you next week.
