This week

This week:
 
 
  • I've got both patchwork floor cushions up to the hand finishing stage.
  • I discovered that just because a rotary cutter blade isn't sharp enough to cut fabric neatly doesn't mean it doesn't have the capacity to slice a chunk out of your thumb.
  • The dog has been a bit confused by the sounds of fireworks going on around the area.  I don't know how to break the news to her that a full on firework display and bonfire party is planned for tonight over at the cricket field practically next to our house.
  • I put a large amount of scrapbooking paper and card into a storage box and moved it into the utility room.  My husband expressed how happy he was that there was now a large tidy space in the spare bedroom until ...
  • I replaced the space made by the paper tidying with fabric and quilt wadding.
  • Whilst entering data for applicants to our school, I realised that some people don't appreciate that naming your child after your favourite Disney fairy isn't necessarily going to be a good idea by the time she is a teenager.  Especially if she does not turn out to be a delicate, pink loving, ballet dancing girl.
  • I was horrified to learn that the lady who takes the Fitsteps class was ill and her friend - a crazy Zumba fanatic - was taking the class. 
  • I was equally ecstatic when her audio equipment broke after the first routine and we all had to go home early (lucky escape, or what?!)
  • My friend's book was published - and on sale in bookshops worldwide.  So very excited for her - it really is proof that dreams do come true.
  • I bought some Christmas cards.  That's pretty early for me but why put it off when I knew I was going to be buying them anyway?
  • I finished off the quilt square to send to Alexa as part of the Friendship Quilt
It's been a busy old week, and I'm pleased I've finished work, it's now Friday afternoon and the weekend officially starts now!  Have a good weekend everyone!

Sinead said...

Sounds like a busy week! I laughed out loud when I read about naming children after Disney fairies - so true :D Hope your dog isn't too traumatised after the fireworks! Have a lovely weekend x

I laughed to imagine hubby's face as you cleared a space...only to fill it with something else!,

I have done exactly the same with my scrapbook supply. The paper has been moved to be replaced with wadding! I love the look of those floor cushions.

I hope CoCo survived the fireworks. Kiera is so frightened that she has to sit on my lap - not a easy task for such a big girl!

Putting your card and paper in storage :0(

You accomplished a lot, I hope the weekend was fun and restful!

It was fun reading about your week, Deb. Pity that you cut your finger on your rotary cutter! I did that once reaching into a drawer - man those things are sharp. I'm truthfully afraid of those things, even though I use one regularly. :o)
