Bliss! Absolute bliss, I tell you. Have I done a lot today. Nope! Do I care? Not one iota. Because I have done not much of anything in silence. I had a long, long chat with one of my bestest buddies on the phone - and no one interupted. I did a little sewing. I read blogs until my eyes near dropped out my head. I did a little sewing. I chatted online to friends. I did a little sewing. No iPod. No television. No computer games. Nothing but the sound of the wind blowing nasty weather around outside.
Yes, most definitely bliss!
What I did manage to do was check off two items from my To Do list. It is nice when you can draw a line through something on a list and know it's completed.
First I made a block for Kat's cheeky quilt. Kat is the sort of person who happily does things for others and then is surprised when people are happy to do things for her. Silly sausage! I hope she likes her block. She wants scrappy, and bright, and slightly wonky. I think I fullfilled the brief.
Next on the agenda were a couple of wonky stars for Judith's Bee Blessed charity bee. You would think I had wonky stars down to a science after making a whole quilt of them but that would be pretty wishful thinking. I did have to unpick several times but I got there in the end.
While we are on the subject of Judith, have you been over to her lovely blog - Rags to Bags - and entered her fantabulous giveaway? If not, hop on over there. 10 FQs of Momo Freebird are up for grabs! You wouldn't want to miss out, would you?!
Judith isn't the only person with a generous giveaway this week. Laura Jane, over at Needles, Pins and Baking Tins has a great one too. While you are in the mood, having entered Judith's giveaway, I would highly recommend that you pop on over to Laura's giveaway and enter that too. You could win 10 FQs of the most gorgeous fabric. Silly not to really! (Why I am telling you about these giveaways and lessening my chances is beyond me. All this me time must be mellowing me!)
So I survived the first day on my own. Think I will give it another go I loved it so much. Oh the joy!
