Well, with much grumping and stupidity, I got my foundation paper piecing project finished and posted so I no longer have to think about it.
As I have crossed that item off the list I felt that meant I could crack on with another item there. I have joined the first swap I have done in ages and ages. Mostly because just about everyone I knew was joining up and I eventually cracked. The time line is a nice long three months so I should be able to do this without panicking, and it is on Instagram not Flickr which was the bit that tipped me over to join. I rarely, if ever, go on Flickr any more because when they changed it I fell seriously out of love with it.
If you are on IG the swap has a hashtag of #igminiswap and we are divided into subgroups of which I am in #ashleybsteam. If you aren't on IG, no worries, I will be posting what I am making here regularly. This is what I came up with as an idea for my partner.
I'm thinking a rainbow of lozenges in an epp project, with monochrome black and white squares between them. If this doesn't float my partner's boat that's okay as I have another recipient this would be perfect for. I can go ahead and cut with impunity because either way I will be crossing another item off my list with this - eventually.
Meanwhile, we are celebrating fourteen years of marriage in this household with a posh dinner entirely not made by me. Coquilles St Jacques with salad followed by a Tarte au Citron. I'll be off to pop the main in the oven then. And to sip a glass of wine with himself. It's been a heck of an interesting fourteen years and it's all good here. Hope the next fourteen are equally interesting - though in a different way. Life is always changing. No need for repeats.
