When I got home there was some Happy Mail!! Woo Hoo!! Love those little parcels. The lovely Shez, who blogs here, ran a secret give away a week or two back, and drew my name from the people who commented on one of her posts. What a surprise to win a give away when you don't even know you have entered!
A little Christmas ornament stitched by Shez. Isn't the little angel sweet? So is Shez by the way, (*grin)
Yesterday afternoon two of the grandies walked up the hill from school for afternoon tea. We had the board game Park and Shop out almost before the tea things were cleared off the table! That is a favourite game for them. It was actually my game when I was 7 or 8, then we played it with my daughter, now the kids love it. Truly vintage, this one.
Have you ever played this game? What is your favourite board game?
After dinner, there was nothing on TV, so I went off downstairs to the workroom and sewed like a demented thing until 11.30pm.
First up, I finished Green Beans Please. Here it is with its' final plaid border on. I am so glad I held off putting the borders on, until I had what I really wanted. I was so cross the day I went shopping, that I couldn't find any plaids, but that is really what it needed. In case you missed it, here is my previous post. I will put a purple binding on this.
I then got stuck into the piles of green and gold squares I cut up a day or so ago, and I now have all the nine patches constructed. Next step is to cross cut them and resew for the D9P.
Off to Friday Quilters this morning.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
