Look who can stand himself up
On Monday, just 4 days ago,
I was marveling about how well Will was sitting on his knee's
A little while ago I was given this black checked fabric
today I was given a role of the black cotton fabric
I can see a bag design here.
My daughter has confirmed she loves the fabrics I have purchased
for the cot quilt and floor of the reading wigwam
She does love shades of grey
I could not resist this design, I got a larger piece to use.
A new author to me
I have finished the book, but won't read her again.
I have sorted all the fabrics for Will's winter cot quilt, plus when I sew his reading wigwam, I will make a quilted base, and loads of cushions. I now have everything ready to start sewing once we are back home.
When I made the cushions for my friends camper van she gifted me the black check fabric left over, stating I had saved more material in my cutting out. She used the black material for curtains, using the heavy cotton black out material, it does fell like suede, she said she would look out the leftovers and I could have it. I was surprised there must be 2 meters on the roll, she would not let me pay her, she has sold her sewing machine and won't do any more sewing. I can't imagine anyone not loving sewing, it's been apart of me all my life.
Yesterday Will and mummy popped in to see us, he is everywhere, now preferring to be on his feet, our cats hid themselves behind the sofa, I turned their baskets so Will could not see them. Will loved standing at our patio doors and watching the garden, shouting at the big birds. Mummy said he got up three steps of the stairs yesterday, so no where is safe, they have gates and guards everywhere.
The next street to our had loads of vandals Wednesday night, vehicles and property were marked with marker pens, some of the things written not nice, they also damaged the house across the street from ours, but did not mark our van parked nearby, which we are very pleased about. The local police officer asked us to check our CCTV, but it was dark and the settings do not cover too much of the pavements, so we could not see anyone. It seams a couple of the neighbours had words with lads in the evening and the police think they came back.
Later today we are packing, we are going in the car, so we can take loads with us, we are just 30 minutes drive from Portsmouth Ferry terminal.
