I've got an easy week ahead. With days off on Tuesday and Friday, two late shifts and my office day. That means lots of time at home, for sewing. :-)
Today I haven't done a great deal I must admit. I surfed around the news websits looking for updates on the ash cloud. You don't need me to point them out for you, there are reports everywhere. I was wondering how long a special birthday card would take to reach NZ and how long it would take my pin wheel block to reach Amy in USA. The only planes leaving or arriving on the island are low flying planes with props rather than jet engines, so no mail plane!! I got to wondering how others were getting on, 1000's of people are stranded as British and European airspace is affected. There are reports of the ash falling to earth, infact we have had a very light dusting, I noticed it on the sky/roof lights on Saturday morning. Of course everyone in Iceland must be wondering whats going on under their feet and how long it's going to last. Already here we have started to notice the effects, as well as a lack of mail, there is also a shortage of imported fruit and veg, I'm sure there are other effects too.
So while I was surfing looking for news, up popped outlook with the reminder I set for myself. It's that time of the month when I tasked myself with working for an hour or two on the denim quilt. I'm really not in the mood for sewing circles together, so I cut some scraps of batting and found a charm pack of batiks.....
Here's where I'm up to. Some of the corners are not playing as nicely as I would like, I'm hoping that fiddling as I sew will help out there. Unless any of you have suggestions?
That's all my news and thoughts for today, I'm off to get some lunch, then to pin a few more squares before I head into work.
