I've been quilting this embroidery quilt for the last two days, so there has been no time for sewing or blogging or anything else. It turned out very pretty, I will have to take photos tomorrow when the light is better.
Lots of things arrived in the post this week, books that I indulged in, and tops from customers, and a belated order from Hancocks, which I'd totally forgotten. I put a Moda scrap bag in the cart, and they were out of stock. I never gave it another thought until this showed up. It's very pretty, Fig Tree & Co Fresh Cottons. It's not someting I'd ever choose for myself, but I'll enjoy using these pretty fabrics in a scrap project sooner or later. I guess I'd better include this in my stash usage as fabric purchased, even though technically I bought it last year.
Another purchase was this music book from Sheet Music Plus, which has some great songs in it. I would have killed for this book when I was a teenager and Celtic music was really unfashionable. There are a thousand songs here, enough to keep me busy for a while. I'm still playing my recorder, a little better than when I started, but not much. When I pick it up Dolly is like a cartoon dog, scrabbling for traction in her haste to get out the door and far away. Nobody appreciates me!
In my quest to take a portrait shot of Dolly I've been sittting with her in the back garden trying to get all the conditions right. The only outcome is that Dolly now puts her ears flat on her head when she sees the camera, and when I make her sit and stay so I can focus on her, she shuffles around until her back is to me. Silly dog!
