at not sleeping. It was 1am before the light went off, so very late getting up this morning, everything will be like the cow's tail - behind!!
Its quite windy here, it had rained during the night, but just now we have sun and blue sky, but its down to 7c.
DB has his jigsaw board out and is doing a jigsaw he got the the Dove Cottage charity shop. Dove Cottage is a local daily hospice which we, as a village, raise funds to support. I bought a pair of chicken bookends, they are cast iron and will do fine as door stops in the summer.
No outside work today, I have done a couple more patterns on my blanket, when DB goes for his rest I will quilt the last 3 mats and get ready to back and bind them.
We had a power cut late yesterday afternoon, DB was watching TV when it went off and the lights all went off. It was off for about an hour, not sure why, but we have Western Power working in the village, wonder if they went through a cable???? We got the camping gas lamp and gas burner out, just in case, but we did not need it. I have put it away in the cupboard in the back bedroom, better than DB having to demolish the shed to find them if they are needed again.
Also need to make some scones, nothing to have with our afternoon tea.
The lay pastor from the Baptist Church at the back of us called this afternoon, he brought me a bag of apples and also told me that he had found someone who was happy to come and sit with DB whilst I am at the quilting group. I am going to ring the gentleman and ask him over for a cup of tea or coffee so they can meet. It will be a lot off my mind knowing there is someone with him.
I have managed to do the bands of the four colours on the blanket, so starting with the first one again now. 96 rows and 19008 stitches, I have at least 2 repeats to do!!!
Did not get to the mats today, must try tomorrow.
