Clothes Shopping

Oh Boy!! did I tell you that Cottonreel is going on a cruise with her son well she is and we have been shopping for clothes, we have been in and out of so many changing rooms (all smelling of sweaty feet and other sweaty things) even the high end one's and looked in those mirrors'yes' those mirrors which you are convinced make you look twice your size and show every lump and bump, we have been at it for two days so far, and it has been very warm, we get home and collapse in a very un-dainty heap. Cottonreel has bought some nice new outfits and will do her son proud but, she has a habit of wanting to come home after a couple of days so her son has promised to throw her overboard if she even mentions coming home. We have a few weeks yet to get everything she needs and by the time she goes I will need to lie down in a darkened room for a few hours. I love her really!

A Basket for Kate

I have been lining a basket for Kate with lovely baby fabric, I have put pockets all around so that she can put all sorts of bits and pieces in them, I am going to fill the basket with lots of necessities for the baby, I hope she likes it. What a busy time of year this is, always something to do in the garden and I seem to have three quilts on the go at the moment, my sewing machine has decided to play up and keeps breaking the top thread, I am taking it to the sewing machine Dr. tomorrow. It has been really hot and heavy today it still is I am going to have a nice cool shower in a moment because otherwise I will not sleep. My son Andrew and his girlfriend Beccy are coming home tomorrow they have been on hiliday in Kefelonia, Greece I am looking forward to seeing them. I Hope you are all having a great summer.
