Chief managed to get down for a few hours yesterday and we all went out for lunch. He bought me one of these:
It was a complete surprise. Apparently after he bought it I announced I'd bought one online. Mine arrived the day before he came down! So when he walked in and saw I'd bought exactly the same one he pulled another box out of his pocket and said: 'Surprise!'. Mum now has the one I bought and I have the one he bought me. He was going to take his back as I already had one, however, this is the first time ever he bought me jewellery and there was no way he was taking it back!
I was too tired to sew after he'd left. I think the rib-eye steak and chips followed by a Belgian Waffle dessert (which was covered in chocolate sauce and bananas; with some Mr Whippy style cream on the side.) finished me off - despite sharing it with Chief. I could barely keep awake long enough to watch Homeland!
Today I've pulled fabric for the Modern Christmas Table Runner Swap.
Obviously I'm not intending to use all of this, but with so little true modern Christmas fabric I'm having to think outside the box a bit. I thought if I pulled everything that might work my partner may say she loves or hates something and that will decide me with a design too.
I also pulled out some text fabric scraps for another secret project and wondered if my Bee a Brit Stingy partner would like a few texty scraps in her Secret Santa hamper. Is there anyone who dislikes Text fabric?
Tomorrow I may stop just playing with fabric and make something.
