Advent gifts, day 15: useful notebooks. Fortunately Grandson wasn't here; he prefers edible presents. But these are lovely!
And this evening I felt the need to cheer myself up, so I started cutting out a new quilt, this time for Son and Daughter-in-Law. Unlike those who can produce such a thing in a matter of days, I predict that I might be finished around summer time. All I've done so far is to cut out twenty-two 5-inch squares, so there's a long way to go. But it's nice to handle pretty material. At the moment I've got cats, generic birds, owls, dragonflies, butterflies, mice, bees and toadstools... or possibly mushrooms. None of these is exactly naturalistic.
I may (will) have to buy some plain fabric but otherwise will be using, and thus (slightly) reducing, my stash. So that's good. I feel better already.
