R is for Rainy DaysThursday, May 08, 2014
Oh it was so nice having a bank holiday this week. I'm still quite sick (ah the joys of pregnancy, they say) so I had a rather lazy weekend on the couch, in bed, in the sun. And then, all of a sudden-ly, it started to rain.
It's still lovely and bright outside, but the rain is glip-glopping on the pavement outside the windows and everything inside becomes hazy and snug and warm. It's quilt weather.
F is for fairy lights
Because nothing is nicer on a rainy day than sitting inside, with fairy lights lighting up lanterns, candle holders and other cheery knick knacks. We made an impromptu trip to IKEA on Monday for an emergency TV stand, and came back with a selection of battery-powered fairy lights. Also, a tv stand which required an awful lot of building. I supervised from bed and read out the instructions.
U is for Unicorns
X is for X-Ray Fish
X-ray fish are grey and black, and you can see their stitched skeleton as they swim by. They also have awfully funny faces with big white eyes, but those are still in progress.
T is for Turtles
The most fiddly of all the applique shapes! Each piece needs to be traced, then cut, then ironed on to fabric, then cut again. PAIN. The acid green shell makes me happy, though, and the batik green seems rather appropriate for turtley appendages.
M is for Messy
