It's been wonderful having four days in a row off: it's such a luxury knowing that I have extra time to get things done. I spent one day sewing and tidying the house, and on Saturday I worked with my DB Doug, building a pad for a garden shed at the Hall. Yesterday we built the actual shed, which was like a giant Meccano project. I truly hate working with metal, it bites and pinches and I don't feel any affinity for it, not like wood. But it's up now, and I only have a few chunks out of my hands, and I'll appreciate being able to store my garden tools out of the weather this winter.
We finally have a winner for the sashing of this set of blocks; the fabric we liked, from Thimbleberries 3's Company range, wasn't right after all, but I'd picked some 1 yard cuts of other pinks to pad out the envelope. One of them, another Thimbleberries print from House & Garden, was Juuuuust Right! I immediately ordered another 3 yards, and now I'm waiting anxiously to see if they have enough to send me. I would have a tantrum if there wasn't enough, after the rigmarole we've been through selecting this fabric.
Best not to think of Tuesday,when we get to deliver 3 days mail all at once.
