I've been given the incentive to get the creative mojo back as the Art department at the school in which I work have introduced a Thursday afternoon 'Arty Party' for staff after the students have gone home at 3.40pm. You can go along and do anything creative that you want, use their equipment and make things. Anything you want. So I've got to grips with my 'Tipsy Tumbler' quilt and used my time to square up the few blocks that I'd made.
This afternoon I threaded up my sewing machine and got to work making some more blocks so that I could start laying out the rows.
In a random pattern. Random. Should be easy - right? No pattern to follow, just lay them down.
So why do I want to find a way of having one of each base colour in each row. A straight one in the middle of one pointing to the left and one to the right. It's taking everything I've got to not worry if I have two of the same colour next to each other. (That's not going to happen, I know that for sure). I didn't realise that I was so bothered about things being equal. But it's a good way to spend a dreary afternoon, I think it's going to be a very quick dog walk today, not that she cares if it's raining or not!
We have no plans for tonight which is kind of nice. I feel like just cooking a nice meal, opening a bottle of wine and seeing if there's a film we can watch on the tv. We went to the cinema on Thursday and saw 'Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri'. I'd read great reviews about it but it wasn't as great as I was expecting - it reminded me of 'Fargo'. I think I'd set my expectations too high! However, we did see the trailer for the new Tom Hanks film with Meryl Streep - The Post and both agreed that we'd like to see that next time.
Have a good weekend!
