I am trying to get Emily to sleep back in her bed now the nights are getting colder, so gave her a new duvet cover that I was saving for Christmas in an effort to make it more inviting and I let her choose the sheets she wanted on and gave her the furry mattress cover off the other single bed! All well and good except I had to make the bed up, it has taken me most of the morning and left me feeling sick, dizzy and shaky, not to mention in pain and tired. Rob did say he would do it, but Emily wanted it ready so I thought it best to get on with it rather than saying no and putting her off using it and she will be able to show her friend who is coming for tea.
I wanted to get a bit of my quilt done before tomorrow, but its not to be I'm afraid.
Oooo just realised I made cup of tea about half an hour ago, must go and find it! Whoops rather stewed as it was still in the teapot! Its my favourite earl grey and the leaf tea is so much better, I use each pot twice to get my moneys worth!!
The quilt is now ready to be made up, spent most of the last session on the floor pinning it together.
After pinning it all together I decided the cat needed some eyes, so asked the advice of my friend Pat and some of her crafty ladies, they agreed and we decided on these buttons.
I need to unpin a bit so I can get my hand in to sew on the buttons, will try and get that done later.
I also need to ask Sarah about my next two ideas the Olaf window picture for Emily. I wanted to make one like this
but its quite a lot of work, so think I will got for simpler design like this
with the Olaf panel I have bought
My other project is a cat picture for my bedroom, like the cat on the quilt but in blues, we printed a mock up, but I can't find it or the computer file :-( Spent 10 mins looking again and found it, I hate losing things and spend half my life looking for things!
I love him already, hope it looks this cute for real.
I am lucky that Rob has booked day off tomorrow to come and help me carry stuff and drive me there and listen to any complicated instructions, but I am disappointed that I need his help and that he is using his holiday to do it rather than something for himself or something more useful. In the afternoon we have to go into school to see what Emily's class have been working on this term. I am looking forward to it, but know it will be a difficult day. This said I had better go and get some painkillers and some rest. I will try and catch up with my positives later.
