I haven’t blogged much this week. I didn’t even post for Thursday Doors! I wanted to write something for the Limerick challenge, and show off on Wicked Word Wednesday. I ignored Tuesdays of Texture and Wordless Wednesday.
So what have I done this week? The main thing is that my house has just gone up for sale, so I spend half my time trying to keep it clean, and the other half looking st new houses to buy on the internet, even though no one has been to see mine yet. Today the agents are running an ‘open house’ for us, although they don’t want us to be here, as apparently viewers are too intimidated if the owners are around, as they can’t express their inner thoughts about the colour of your walls or your hideous ornaments. It’s pouring with rain today, so I’m sure no one will come.
The other thing which is stressing me out is that someone I know has given me their wedding dress and asked me to make them a quilt out of it…….. sharp intake of breath….. I was very flattered that she asked me, and I’ll have a go at anything, so I put my stupid head on and said ‘yes, of course, I’ll have a go!’ Despite me never doing anything like this ever before, never done quilting at all. So where do I start?
I decided to start by unpicking it all carefully, to see the amount of fabric I’ve got to work with. Nightmare job! All the sequins and minuscule glittery beads started to fall off. It’s sewn together with some industrial stitching that is impossible to unpick. So far I’ve spent three days on it, I have a little dish of loose beads and sequins and very sore fingers. I want a fairy godmother to come along and help me. ….
The other thing I did this week was go to the cinema to see “A Street Cat Called Bob”.
A lovely British film about a homeless ex-drug addict who adopts a stray cat. There was a book about their adventures written a few years ago, and now it’s s film. I loved it, I almost cried at the end (spoiler – it’s OK, nothing happens to the cat….).
