Darkside Diaries / Re: Wrenkins does very little.

I've been a busy bee.  :angel:

I sorted my groups and placed my necessaries then put the other bits in a giant Sainburys bag for shuffling. Going well so far eh? I then lucky dipped and set my blocks out to look for patterns.  :S I found a few and did some moving about and finally I have half a quilt top sewn and the other half pinned in the right order ready to sew. WooHoo!

Meanwhile... when the thinking was still happening I cut a mile and a half of binding and it is carefully wrapped round a seldom-used ruler.

I can't help thinking that if I hadn't done the blocks for both tops at the same time I would be stopping after one!  :faints:

It'll definitely be finished tomorrow I should think in time for June's big double block extravaganza!

WooHoo I was clapping oh goody before I even opened that link @Iminei  0_0 Myself and some friends did that for fancy dress one year. It's amazing how four such different people could look so the same! Confused the b'jayzuz out of everyone.

Hope you have more luck with Morrisons @Ploshkin . A couple of regular Morrisons shoppers on the gardening forum have been very hacked off with their online service and have gone elsewhere for their deliveries!

Woo hoo! Have squeaked in with 2 and a half hours of the day left. I haven't done final pressing yet but I'm sure that will be OK for tomorrow  :)

I did mine at the during the first week but wanted to quilt at least one before I take a pic. I just haven't felt like sewing though. I do know how I plan to quilt so hopefully the mojo will resurface.
Meanwhile I'm going to be late for the May pics
 Sorry :(
