I came to the realisation today that I am always lethargic on a Monday because the end of the week and weekends are always so manic. Today was that sort of day - not stressful - just non-stop, and not done yet. Tomorrow will be more so and Sunday I will be sorting things out for the girls and I to escape to London for a few days. Woohoo! Two nights there and my mum meeting up with us as well. Tickets to go see Wicked (very excited about this), and plans to go to the Sylvanian Families Shop. (If you have no idea what these are then sorry, but my girls love them. If you are in the USA then I think that they are called Calico Critters where you are.) Helen is desperate to go on the London Eye but, let's face it, if the weather is crap, and therefore the visibility too, then I am not forking out the money for us to go in one big, high, slow circle to see nothing! So we shall have to wait and see what else we do there once we have a better idea what the weather throws at us. Last time we went in an October half term holiday it was snowing when we came out from the theatre.
When I wasn't running errands, grocery shopping, cooking, etc today, I did three more cushion covers. One ultra girlie one, and two boy ones.
|No sunshine to brighten them up today!|
|My attempt at shabby chic.|
Some of those fabrics were so good at the 'faded' look
that I was hard pressed to tell which side was the reverse.
|Delved deeper in to my stash and found the firetrucks in there.|
Testament to my early days of quilting and making baby quilts for all my friends who were still breeding.
|I sort of want every cushion to be unique|
so altered the fabric around on the these two boy cushions.
