Good Morning

I hope you are well

I am not too bad Greg is still in

a lot of pain plus not sleeping

I managed to get some sewing done

yesterday also started a new wash set

the yarn i am using is a large 400 grm

ball of cotton yarn it not one i would have

got but i received it in a knitting swap

& as getting the dishcloth cotton yarn here is either

limited or expensive & doing a wash set takes

more than the 1 small ball i have to have

several of the same colour so this size means

i can do a couple of sets at least

I hope that i will get to do more sewing done

today but will have to see what Greg is wanting

to do hopefully he leave me to do what i

want to do & don't need me to take him

anywhere or do anything

Well i hope you wish a very

Blessed Day

Hugs Janice

I had the wadding arrive i also checked out the size of a bought baby's quilt if it for the cot the size seems to be 40 x 50 inches so i will still keep the quilt middle the same size as planned but i may add more borders to make it a little bigger

Comment by Ruthann yesterday

sounds like are coming right along on the pinwheel quilt, will be adorable when you are done

sorry had a backache and that Greg is in pain, time will heal it, just hang in there.. are thinking good thoughts for him

did make a couple yo yos, want to make as flowers in the future, so hand sewed a couple, closest thing came to sewing. went grocery shopping, texted on my new cellphone, watched TV, read, made brownies and porqupine meatballs. other than that not a thing, arm is getting a bit better..

Comment by Janice Aitkens yesterday

Good Morning

I hope you had a good week-end

I am hoping the plumber will be

here this morning to do the leaking

tape it just a washer but it too tight

for Greg to get it off (before he had the op)

we also want them to do shut off valves

so we could turn the water off

also hoping to hear when the boiler

can be done i asked for it to be done

sooner than 2 weeks as i am fed up

with having cold showers when it

acting up lol

I managed to get 2 pinwheels

done i have the rest sewn & cut just have

to put them together

hoping to get them done today

then will cut fabric for the applique

part of the quilt i am hoping the

wadding will arrive so i know

the final size i will do the quilt

You have a wonderful day & week

Hugs Janice
