Within a week we went from sleeping with windows open & no blankets to sleeping with windows closed, winter pyjama's and blankets.
** So I cleaned out the girls drawers on Saturday and got out all our winter clothes ready for the cooler weather to continue.
** And what would you know, the very next day the sun came out and we have roasted ever since... Today is 32 degrees - not exactly winter clothes weather hmmmm!!! Typical.
** We are enjoying some much needed down time for the beginning of the school holidays. A more flexible schedule has meant more pyjama mornings of easy play...
|No laughing at my slippers...|
** These necklaces & bracelets are so great for small children because they are made with memory wire. So if they get pulled there is no clasp so they just slide right off the child's neck. Much less chance of breakages (or strangulation) when little girls fight over who's bracelet is whose...
** Not that my children ever fight.
** HA yeah right! My nose just grew...
** In sewing news I finally had a chance to catch up on bee blocks. I made 6 over the weekend but I'll show you those tomorrow for WIP Wednesday.
** I have also managed to piece & baste my rainbow starburst quilt...
Quilting has begun...
** The stretch knit fabric backing is proving a challenge as I expected but just not in the WAY I expected - spray baste is my friend so I am not having a problem with puckers (well so far) but I AM having a problem with the fabric being too grippy and not sliding easily. Talk about hard work to quilt!
Yikes, small bursts are all I can manage because I really do have to tug it as I quilt this time and it's hard, sore work.
** It will be worth it. It will be worth it. It will be worth it.
** ... just trying to reassure myself.
** Seriously hoping I don't regret that fabric choice!
** On a completely random (and R18) note
- it has come to my attention over the past 2 weeks that my recent blog post "what's new Pussy-Kat" has been having an oddly large number of hits!! I must admit that I did wonder when I originally wrote the title whether I would be asking for trouble, but call it an experiment if you will, I decided to go ahead with the title anyway and see what came of it...
** Well, my hypothesis was proven quite successfully really - it turns out that putting the word pussy in your blog title is indeed a good way to bring more traffic to your blog. Only a few extra hits. 5-600 more hits than a usual that is.
** I must admit that it makes me chuckle thinking what a disappointment my blog must be to all those people searching for "new pussy".
** Do you think any of them stayed around to learn to quilt or read my faith page?
Somehow I think not... ;)
