Welcome to a slightly damp day in Llandudno. We had rain overnight, for which the local farmers are mightily glad, and it’s a bit overcast. Actually, it’s been overbearingly hot recently so I’m quite enjoying it!
For those that asked, Kevin’s finger is much better. We were able to take the bandage off and replace it with a large plaster. He’s been able to go plaster free for a couple of days now. He’ll have a lovely scar!
On my desk today is a Cinch Tote Lunch Bag I made from the instructions I had on last week’s desk. If you’d like to make one yourself you can find it on the Facebook page, ‘Fat Quarter Sewing Projects UK’ in the Announcements section. I’m thinking of making it slightly larger and using as a handbag. I made it from some fat quarters I bought from Aldi. I don’t particularly like these patterns but didn’t want to use my favourite fabric and then mess it up! Now I know I can do it I can use nicer fabric.
Just behind the bag is my new quilting ruler. Very useful. This one is imperial but I’ve also ordered a metric one. I was brought up using metric; all my schools used metric. I don’t understand why we aren’t fully ‘metricated’ in the UK. But occasionally I will need the imperial one. This bag for instance; the instructions are all in inches.
It’ll be our 39th wedding anniversary on Saturday so I’d better set to making a card! Hwyl am y tro!
