Four things

Well - I was thinking about what to post about tonight and Jane at Sew Create it has tagged me - so I don't have to think.

4 jobs I've had
  • working in a shoe shop when I was at school
  • Bingo Hall - no I didn't call the numbers, I was the Office manager and I can honestly say it was the worse job I ever had
  • working in various libraries - I really enjoyed that
  • Asda on the tills when you sat side on and had to re-pack the trolley, boy did you get back ache
4 films I could watch over and over

  • Moonstruck
  • Some like it Hot
  • James Bond films (but not with Roger Moore or Timothy Dalton - sorry)
  • Seven Brides for Seven Brothers - Howard Keel is fantastic in this.

4 TV shows I watch

  • Heroes
  • The Tudors
  • Doc Martin - I know that's a bit sad but it's got nice scenery and is relaxing to watch
  • Strictly Come Dancing - (And 'It takes two' when I can fit it in)

4 places I have lived
  • Portsmouth - very nice near the seaside
  • Knaresborough, North Yorkshire - a really beautiful place
  • Heanor, Derbyshire - we were rather skint then,
  • Market Bosworth - the best yet
4 favorite foods:

  • Chocolate
  • Sticky toffee pudding
  • Stilton cheese - even though it gives me a headache, just means when I eat it I have to eat loads to make it worthwhile.
  • really nice fresh bread, white, wholemeal, with seeds....

4 favorite colors:
  • Brown
  • Cream
  • Turquoise
  • Red

4 places I'd love to be right now:
  • Ragdale Hall - if you've not been and you get the opportunity it's great spa. I promise a few days will feel like you've rested for a week.
  • Japan - because I haven't been and I'd love to see what it's like
  • Quilting retreat with a shop and a bottomless purse (see I don't want much really)
  • Little seaside town on a sunny day
4 names I love but could/would not use for my children:
As i haven't got any children it's not something I've really considered - sorry

4 people I'd love to tag with this Meme: (don't think you've been tagged)
Have a good evening.

Outstanding Projects

Do you remember when this... became this? Well - It's time to get it finished.  This is my next project.  I intend to hand quilt kit with big black stitches. I always like to have a hand quilting project.
Last night I went to the Lutterworth Embroiderers Guild talk.  It was a great talk from Gizella K Warburton.  She shared her work with us - both textile work and photographs.  I really enjoyed seeing both.  Do have a look at her work.  It's abstract and uses some great fabrics which give the feel of the countryside.  These images give you a hint at the work Gizella produces. I hope to make progress with a few things this weekend and I'll post about it next week. Have a great weekend.

How to avoid lots of unpicking!

As I'd made good progress with making up this quilt top I had the bright idea to add a 'fillet' of yellow to brighten it up and add a couple of borders. So the idea was there - but how to do it wasn't - hence lots of unpicking.  I thought I'd share how I worked it out so you could avoid the unpicking So cut a 1 inch strip, iron in half and baste along the outer edge of the quilt. I basted along the edge so they be picked out easily - there is still a bit of unpicking.  Then stitch on the next border. 
Then press out and remove the basting. YAY. How else can you spend a damp Bank Holiday weekend. Hope you're all enjoying sewing too. Best wishes
