Today I went off to town.a long trek to the bus, and a long bus ride, I needed shopping not available in the village, like a new kettle. Does 4 yrs daily wear sound about right for the one I have discarded ? The new one is black and metal, looks smart enough .
I sat quilting for a long time yesterday, I seemed to have 3 quilts on the go . not my style of working,one at a time is how I like to progress . Too many quilts on the go and they seem to take ages to complete. Two are now finished . I,ll put these on tomorrow,the 3rd one needs redoing in two places . It,s not quite flat where 2 points meet, a little bump of material that would not have been there if I had put the quilt flat on the table when I was putting it in the hoop instead of doing it on my lap while watching Dr Zhivago on t,v, mmmmm Omar Sharif and Julie Christie , a good combination and Rod Stieger as the baddie .
I also did the dresser that I display the blue and white on . I do have a lot of blue and white pots . I like to wash them by hand . I did them in the d/washer once and they left the odd water mark where they were unglazed underneath .They should be done every month but I had to spend more time on the garden this summer,it,s looking after itself pretty well now though , plus we have had enough rain so I do not need to water.
While I was in town I went to the market (cannot resist saying dot com,. like the advert) I got 4 beautiful shiny purple egg plants for £1 and a pound of button mushrooms 80p, I really enjoyed my dinner tonight, I made muosaka ,mushrooms and cauliflower cheese,
I think it,s bedtime, Ive packed enough in for 1 day . Bless you all
