Yup, that's right, I'm still in bed (mind you it is only 8.30 which I suppose isn't late for a Sunday, but it's late for me). DH is away for a running weekend with his running club (I do so hope the weather is better in Hertfordshire, but I doubt it) so I didn't sleep that well. And I let Rosie sleep on my bed, instead of shutting her in the dining room, and I don't think she slept at all, just kept wandering round on top of me! So, I'm cosied up in bed with some (wheat-free) toast and a cup of tea, catching up with emails and blogs.
I haven't posted any news for a while, just haven't felt like it, so there's plenty to write about and photographs to show.
We've finally taken our house off the market. We've had loads of visitors - and how fed up I got with having to keep the house 'visitor ready' - but only some rather silly offers. And this really doesn't seem a sensible time to sell or buy a house with the financial situation so unstable. Typical though, a few days after we informed the estate agent that we were giving up, someone came up with a pretty good offer. We decided to decline it though, as we'd made up our mind to wait. What a relief! It's so good to know where I'll be for the next six months or so, to leave the washing up if I don't feel like doing it and to be able to make a mess with my sewing!
Even though the last few weeks have been a round of doctor visits, physiotherapy and migraines I have managed to get quite a bit of sewing done. I've made some heat bags for Christmas presents for my two brothers-in-law and my father-in-law and was delighted at how well they work. I might make the same for my sisters-in-law, or might make them some shopping bags.
There was another Dear Jane class at my LQS and I've been making loads more. The photographs of all the blocks I have made so far are in my side bar. I'm loving the challenge and the hand sewing. I've given in and sent off for the CD as I think it will be easier to print off the templates rather than tracing them - I think I'm slightly accuracy challenged! I've fallen a bit behind with my other hand sewing, though, so will have to get down to it - put the heater on in the lounge and lots of Radio 4 and I'll be away.
Number 1 son is coming for lunch today, DH will be home later today, tomorrow is Mystery Monday at The Quilt Room (I've never been before so don't know what it's about) and Number 2 son is coming to visit tomorrow evening and staying over until Tuesday evening. So, plenty to occupy me.
