learning when to stop

this is not something I am very good at! Today I have learnt that trying to cook a quiche whilst basting a quilt and putting the children to bed all at the same time is NOT a good idea, it will only end in a pointless waste of home made pastry and lovely goats cheese filling when you DO burn it!

I didn't learn and went onto quilting, despite being weary and a little over-necessarily upset about the quiche (but oh the pastry AND I had blind baked it any everything!). I have now learnt it is not a good idea to wear a charcoal woollen cardi whilst man-handling and wrestling a predominantly white quilt thought the machine. It will be ok, it will come out in in the wash (or with the lint roller failing that).

So for now I am going to stop, watch some c**p on TV and eat things I shouldn't. AND let the lovely post I got cheer me up.


So pretty I didn't want to open it....but I couldn't resist!


Look look look! It is from Hadley and it is awesome! AND she sent me one of THOSE moon cards ;-)



I love it, thank you Hadley, I still can't believe it is mine and keep going to stare at it. Whoooo roll on June so I can wear it!

I must also mention I had lovely post from Lucy too, she sent me a couple of the Melody Miller typewriters after I gushed about how much I love them. What a lovely lady she is :-)
