This Weekend

Despite the awful thing* that happened on Sunday, I had a mostly pleasant weekend.


On Saturday, there was some hand stitching of my new quilt labels. 



Hello Sailor Quilt - Front


This is now affixed to the back of my Hello Sailor quilt, which lives with my bestie :-)




On Sunday morning, blissfully ignorant of the awful thing*,  I started on my Brit Bee block for this month. The fabulous Ceri is queen bee for March, and she wanted paper pieced food.





This was my first foray into the freezer paper technique, and, whilst crazy time consuming, I think I like it better than foundation piecing!






Then there were 2...



And there will be 2 more, maybe tonight! Question: How many times can you use freezer paper pieces before they loose their sticky?



I had intended to go to Ikea Sunday afternoon for a fabric and cake plates and plastic tubs. And meatballs! Unfortunately the bestie I mentioned above had a nasty run in with some glass. So we set off for A&E instead. It was then I discovered the awful thing*.


After patching her up, and taking her home, I finished the day relaxing in the sun with Walter, and wine. So, 2 bad thing, 3 good things. Can't really complain ;-)






* My car got broken into. The stole my satnav, my old and sentimental leather jacket, and my favouritest coat in the entire world. I am not at all pleased.

  9. Oh no, how awful! Are you now wrangling with the insurance company? I love your peppers (I've re-used FP at least a dozen times before it's started to lose its sticky!). I hope your friend is ok and that you make it to IKEA another day!

    I'm slightly scared by the freezer paper method of PP, gives me brain freeze looking at all the pieces laid out but you've done a great job. love the quilt and labels too.

  17. I absolutely hate that those wieners broke into your car and stole your stuff, but I must say that judging by the reactions here I would hate to do anything bad to these ladies! Especially Kelly. They definitely have your back! Hope this week goes a bit better for you!

  18. I'm so sorry that your car got broken into and that your friend had to go to Emergency (I didn't realize that in the UK it was called the A&E). I hope this week ends on a happier note!

  20. Boo that big bad really sucks!

    That's me "accidentally" smacking the naughty people with my stealth quilting ruler. Hopefully it will knock some sense into them and they'll find a way to return your stuff....

I really am sorry about the car thing, why do people take the irreplacable things like special coats? GGrrrrrrr x

  23. Pants about your car. It happened to me and I know how got at it makes you feel. Perhaps the perpetrator will get struck by lightning.

  24. I love your labels, your finishes are perfect and your Sunday still sucked. Sorry about the break-in. Mean people suck!

  25. Bastards! Hate people who think that stealing other people's things is an acceptable way to live their lives. They need smacking - hard - and then some!!

  26. horrid - sorry that you had to go through that. Love your red quilt, it looks amazing

  27. Love the peppers, but oh man, sorry about the car! Mine got broken into when I was at uni one night. They obviously hadn't realised it belonged to an impoverished student, because having failed to try and prise out my superglued in radio/cassette player, the only things they could find to steal was my 2 Snoopy air fresheners... it made me irrationally nervous about buying more air fresheners for a while after that

  28. I'm with Kelly. Wishing all kinds of awful things on people who do that. Our car was broken into years ago and I'm still annoyed by it.

    Your peppers are lovely though. And I want a kitty, just so I can take relaxed pictures of it.

    Where did you get those awesome quilt labels? They are exactly what I'm looking for!
