Yesterday I had to go to London for blood tests, which wasn't a great deal of fun. My new homeopathic doctor wanted some done on the NHS (last Monday) and some which had to be done at a private clinic in London. It entailed glucose tablets when I got there, wait one hour, have about an armful of blood taken (with the usual problems of finding a vein willing to co-operate), then go and have a high protein lunch, wait an hour and a half and go back to have another armful of blood taken (again, with the usual vein-finding fun). So that was quite a boring way to spend a day in London. Words like hedgehog and pincushion spring to mind!
Well, at last some decisions about my Strawberry Crush Plus One (or two or three or more). I've made a twin size using both blocks with a pale green spotty border - which doesn't show up at all well here - and used the Step 2 square blocks for an extra border at top and bottom. I've used the straight setting which I'm much happier with. And it's growing on me. I'm going to put the rest of the spinning star blocks with sashings I think and see what size it ends up.
And then I had a brilliant idea for the triangle blocks. I was starting to think about presents to make for cleaners, hairdresser etc, for when we move house, and thought about making these tote bags using the blocks. I'm rather pleased with the outcome. This one is very simple, not lined or anything, so I will have to think whether I should line the rest that I make.
Now I'm going to rest and do some hand sewing, as I am determined to keep enough energy to get up to London again this evening as we have tickets for Joseph and The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. I'm really looking forward to that.
