What have I been upto, well firstly, on Friday night I got busy and made the second block from my BOM Sampler, thought I better have shown willing for the club members. They were quietly enthusiastic about this one and the Birdie stitches.
I put a call out on flickr, Instagram, twitter and facebook to see if anyone had a charm pack of Frolic, (I'd sewn up the border on the block before checking that I had enough of a mix to frame all the blocks with it) luckily I've sourced one from a FQR buddy :)
I'm really frustrated because I'm waiting on 50 balls of Perle Cotton and the postman is being really really slow delivering it to me, :(
On Saturday, mum and dad took the kids out for lunch and some shopping so I had a go on the frame, I practiced what trudi had taught us on retreat and read through some books, got busy with e's & l's, interlocking hearts and more dragon's.
Bonnie is happy now as she has a large area to lie on now, especially as the kitties have taken over her bed,
oh and my frame !!!! Can I just add, I'm loving the Aurifil poly, it hasn't broken on me once, fab tension with the bottom line bobbin thread....so worth begging Alex@aurifil to bring some over to London, just kicking myself now I didn't buy more... oh well,
Until tomorrow, :)
