Hooray Hooray!

I just noticed I already have THIRTEEN followers!
WOW I'm very much honoured and I hope I can keep you interested in reading my scribbles!

This week everything is at a slower pace due to the start of the Summer Holidays in this part of the country.
A lot of my friends are or are on the brink of going away.

The mister and me aren't leaving till everyone else is back ....
So another month of preparation for our trip; which means I have to get things ready for the Hexalong I'm following:
I've ordered (YES!) 2 more charm packs of Terrain, because that's the fabric I've chosen.
I've also ordered more paper templates for this English Paper Piecing project here: my hexes will be 2".

Meanwhile I'm (still) qulting free motion and in straight lines, the quilt I've made for my eldest daughter Rosa. I hope to bring it next weekend, if she's not away on holiday too. I'll give her a ring.
My machine really is annoying me from time to time: one minute it works great and the quilting is easypeasy; the next it's like this:

Don't you hate it when this happens!!
It must be something with thread tension, but I haven't figuered it out yet.
So I turned my attention elsewhere at sewing round the bend LOL:
Does it look a bit funny on our floor: I can see green and white tiles peeping out.

It's 15" x 58" (38 x 147 cm) and I had planned it for our living room: a long horizontal line, quilted with PATIENCE. But now my mum is moving and she hasn't got space left for her big cabinet, something like this:

And even though we are not on speaking terms she let my know (via her grandchildren) that I could come and pick this up if I wanted to. And YES I want to!
But I phoned a removal firm to pick it up for us: I want the cabinet, but I don't want contact.
Yes I know what you're thinking: hypocrite!
Well, maybe.
But then you don't know all the details of our past lives ...
I've not told you about the bullying, the sneering, the blackmailing (mentally), etc
She was not happy and she saw a chance to relive her life through mine.
It took me 43 years not only to realise this but also to rebel against it.
So now you know the whole story.

Anyway, it means we have to rearrange things in our living room, which I don't mind at all for I have loved this piece of furniture for as long as I can remember.

Hooray again!

Have a great week!
