Totally could not think of a decent title for the day.... I mean... I have no plans, I have no riveting news to impart....

Not going to town for girly morning tea... they all got other plans... except me mate Chris D who's popping in here for a cuppa. That will be nice, and the kids can just play and keep outta me hair.

I plan on practising doing 1/4inch seams today... that should be FUN... god I can't wait.

Someone shoot me now, my life is going down the toilet....

No really, I'm just feeling a bit down today.... ignore me, piss off and read someone who's INTERESTING would ya? Maybe I will perk up later.... and be NICE. lol, yeah right. If I can't get out for a walk today, it will be done on the Treadmill, I WILL DO IT, I WILL.

Before I went to bed last night I sewed my first 'block' with practise material... it came out OK, but too big! Derrrr... hope Karen comes around today to tell me what I did wrong!
COFFEE BEAN: Yes I update the day's post several times during the day..... I have nothing better to do! It's a bit like "The Days Of Our Lives" here!
UPDATE ON THAT BLOCK ABOVE: I'm a bloody dork! I had it lined up wrong, it is in fact the right size ! OK, it was late, I was tired... the ruler lied! Whatever!
Well I have made two more blocks, each one the same, but I'm getting better at matching the seams! Not much else going on today, the kids have amused themselves (NOT quietly worst luck), but still kept outta my hair! My friend Karen came around and reckoned I did good with me blocks, so I'm happy about that.
End of Day: productive, getting colder here .... blasted winter is on it's way.
NSV: Been so busy sewing etc I forgot to eat till 3pm... had a rather late lunch I did! nite nite.

    I think it looks great for a first attempt. I'm in awe of people who quilt, it just seems too difficult for little me. Or perhaps the real reason is my lack of patience. Hope your day improves.

    You enjoyed doing it right? So, perfection will come with time!

  8. I refuse to learn how to sew! I swear....I do not have a domestic bone in my body!

    Hope everything picks up soon!
