It,s been a really difficult weekend , everything I started developed a problem . first the quilt I was going to finish for a friend .had a problem , then the power cut and the alarm screaming . today I started cushions for a summer house ,I do not have a piping foot and I couldn,t get close enough with the zip foot , I rang my son and said I,ll have to give up, "mmmmm "said he "never mind" . Then he rang me back to say skip the piping , so now the job is back on . hopefully it will now be o,k
Something nice did happen this morning , A friend ( the one with te dodgy quilt) came for coffee and brought me a late birthday present , 6 Laurel Birch fat quarters and a ceramic wall plaque depicting a goose tracks pattern . She remebered from some time in the past that I greatly admired the fabric of the late Laurel Birch
I also had a late birthday present from my son and daughter in law , they went to New York for christmas . They brought back 3 super Macy,s bags for me and a Macy,s pinafore , I,ll show them on my post tomorrow
Being as it had been a very fraught weekend I felt my ruffled feathers needed smoothing, so , I made pancakes for myself the mixture made enough for 4 pancakes , so I ate 4 !!!! drenched with fresh lemon and suger . I feel fine now , fit to face a new day tomorrow.
