I just had to tell you about the lovely weekend I had. I feel a bit guilty as my poor boyfriend has had an AWFUL weekend (long story involving his ex, she is a nightmare)
Saturday it rained but I spent most of the day putting together the quilt sandwich of my 'Quilt for Me'. What a job! I have never handled anything bigger than a baby quilt before, so that was interesting. Not entirely happy with the results from the way I did it (pinned backing to carpet and spray basted and so on...), but thats ok. I even quilted the centre section, just did a straight line grid. I Am planning to stipple the border another day, my hands and arms were getting tired by then.
Saturday evening was a relaxing night with a glass of wine watching Britain's Got Talent. You HAVE to check out this girl, she's great!:
Sunday, the weather was fine, I drove over to Mom and Dad's early (roof of the car down, thats how nice it was!) to stay with Mom so Dad could go out cycling. Me and Mom went to the nearby picturesque village of Kinver ( http://www.stourbridge.co.uk/htm/kinver.htm ) to their community centre where they were holding a Bric-a-Brac sale, which was fun. I got some bargains....a marble rolling pin for £5 ($7.29) , a packet of 5 pairs sports socks for Dad for 50p (72 cents), a full 50ml bottle of 'Paris' perfume by Yves Saint Laurent for £4 ($5.83) which is the real bargain as it is £30 in the shops. And Mom won a little stuffed rabbit in the tombola.
Then we went by the supermarket to get burgers and sausages, and I did a BBQ for lunch for me, Mom and Dad. My brother was at work but I put aside some food for him. I went home about 4pm, did a little light housework, made a BIG pot of turkey chilli to freeze in batches, and then spent some quality time on the sofa with the cats for the rest of the evening.
Now Monday morning is here...it is RAINING hard and back to work. :cry:
Hope you all had a good weekend too! :wink:
