Linda yes I do get sticky eyes in morning, optician advised a hot wet cloth laid on them, and I have drops, hot cloth is soothing


Glad your granddaughter is feeling better Eliza I like your quilting , are you stitching the leaves through 3 layers


Oh hubby ready to go shopping (food) I will pop back later

Good afternoon ladies. Done my shopping ( a certain little lady was pushing the trolley, looking for things when I asked her, threw things in the trolley and with the help of her dad put them on the conveyor at the tills :) ) and in for the day now. Bitterly cold outside.  Still lots of patches of icy snow around where the sun hasn't hit.


Going to have lunch shortly then some knitting until Sophie comes.


Linda craft shops charge a lot more for Freezer paper thin k I got mine from Am***n - best to check around


Eliza quilting looks good


Su2ie my floor is the same when my granddaughter comes - can't see the carpet for the toys  :P

Hope everyone has a good day whatever you do - stay warm


Take care

Just got back from York with a new sewing machine..I just thought stop dithering and get one.


The panel I am making is all hand sewn..due to broken machine..I free hand drew the leaves with water soluble pen then running stitch over it though 3 layers..I'll bind it eventually on my new machine..its a Jan*** that has 100 stitches..I think..too tired to take it from box..I'll play tomorrow.


Old one can go away and hubby said he'll pull it apart when he has time and see if he can sort it. We worked out it needs about 5 new parts you can see where they are worn so would have cost a bit ti get it repaired professionally.


I'm really tired and can't think straight..I'll say bye for now ..


Oh who asked about dry eye..a friend has it and gets ointment from doctor. .

Finished OH's beanie. Love the pattern 'cos it's so quick. It's one I made up a few years back. He's very pleased with it - pics hopefully below. :)

Happy evening all. :)
