Have I mentioned before that I'm a bit of a night owl? I feel sure if I haven't actually said it, you may have picked it up along the way. Last night I crept into bed after midnight sometime. I don't know the exact time - I didn't look. That way - if questioned by DH, I can honestly say "Ohhh, I don't know what time it was". Why was I up so late? Well, I finished the quilting on my scrap quilt, and I thought I'd just pop the binding on. There isn't a clock in the sewing room, and it's easy to get carried away.
There is something of a method to my madness though, Marty's friend Peter is flying in on Thursday, and will be staying overnight before they head off together on Friday. This means that I need to convert the sewing room into the guest room, and I don't want it to interfere with my sewing time at all. Now that the machine work is done on this quilt, I can spend a couple of days de-cluttering, folding away the cutting table and sewing table etc. and making the room feel like somewhere you'd want to sleep.
But anyways, Yay! the binding is on the quilt! I got it done a little earlier than expected, so I just need to write the directions now and make a few 'in progress' pieces. I can relax just a bit. I have drawn up two other quilts, both of which I've pretty much decided which fabrics I'll be using. I'll give myself a little bit of a rest and send the drawings off to see what sort of response they get. Super fun!
Thank you everyone for your fun commentaries on your footwear. Clearly it takes all kinds to make a world, and we've got all the footwear types covered. I never expected to be at the medium-high end of the shoe collecting scale, as my Mum has more than one hundred pairs. She's someone who travels a lot, and frequently brings home a lot of pairs. Because she seldom wears them out, she has a LOT. So I guess my perspective on a lot of shoes is slightly skewed. However, like many of you have stated, if I could find the perfect shoe that fit all occasions, I'd gladly trade them all in. Well ... maybe except my patent strappy sandals ... I love them just too much!
Also, thank you all for your tips and recipes for using up the lemons. I know I'm going to love each and every one of them. I'd never heard of Lemon Bars before, they sound super yummy, I think they may be first on the list. Also the lemonade is right up there. I'm going to get some soda water tomorrow, how nice it'd be to have the extra fizz in there.
Well, that's it from me, I hope you all had a great Mother's Day, just like me! x o x
