DB's foot seems to be a lot better he announced that he thought he could walk without his crutch, ok in the house, but I prefer him on two outside until we are sure his foot is not going to let him down.
Asda has started another fuel war it seems their diesel is down to £1.33 a litre. I have decided to go to Syston Aldi tomorrow and fill up with fuel at Asda at Thurmaston, I will fill the tank which will last us 2 months. The fuel at our local Tesco is £1.40 a litre, quite a bit of a hike!!
DB for his INR this morning,it had gone up drastically due to the codeine he has been taking so medication reduced and appointment for next week for another check. Collected his scripts from the chemist at the same time and also picked up the TV mag so he can plan his programmes for next week. Do not care what he watches as long as I can see Strictly and Downton.
DB went for his siesta, I prepared the sausages etc for supper, we have the apple and blackberry sponge to finish off. Had a few minutes zizz on the settee myself.
The laundry dried well on the line, its been folded and put away.
Finished a book I was reading and went looking for a couple of quilting magazines with patterns in I wanted, cannot find them...brilliant, I must have had a senior moment when I sorted out the sewing room and filed them in the dustbin. One of them I knew was a Bonnie Hunter scrap pattern from 2010......The other was a star patten I used to make several sets of place mats and table runners. I have a photo of the mats, and I am sure it used 2 1/2" squares, so will have to try and work out the pattern, typical. I did not even make a set of mats or a runner for myself.
They were one of a set of two I sent to my friend and her sister in the US. I had used the same pattern the previous year to make them table runners. The photograph below is a 6 foot table runner I made, it was a commission for a friend who wanted to give something different to her next door neighbour. I used the same star pattern, but alternate blocks were plain red with a friendship star embroidered on in gold thread. I also made a smaller one for my friend using the same fabrics.
It took me a sleepless night to work out how to make such a long runner. It was very well received as was the smaller one.
Need to go and sort out the supper its all ready, just need to put the veg in the steamer and put it on, the casserole is bubbling away gently.
