Good Morning all, and again its time for the Wednesday stalk over at The Stamping Ground, under the watchful eye of our hostess, Julia.
Picture of my desk this week is the first 9 blocks for my LilyBo quilt. You can just about see the piece of paper I was planning out my sizes on at the top. Ok, so this was (at least) the fourth piece with a plan on, so I guess you could say I'm running with Plan D! Not worrying, I've got plenty of alphabet left yet.
One of the people making quilts had posted about using fleece blankets for the back of the quilts, so when I saw these, I let Jo know about them so she could put a 'heads up' on her LilyBo Quilts site as at 120x150cm they are pretty much the perfect size for backing a quilt. I found them in B&M, a pair of blankets for £3.99.
Quite a few colour choices too. Not too thick, and the edges are just blanket stitched, so no bulk.

How cool are these? I put a ruler next to them so you can get an idea of the size, although looking at the pic, its not showing up very well. Just measured them and they are 2" tall. They'd make great focal points for a card, that can be taken off and then be used as a fridge magnet. They're plastic too, so not too heavy, and should take Alcohol ink/Stains/paints I expect.
I'm back at work as of Monday just gone, so its back to juggling my time. Saw the Doc last Thursday, and he said he had no need to see me again, just keep up with the Physio visits, and bear in mind it will be 3-4 months before it really gets back to normal.
One card I've done over the last week:
I've just remembered, if any of you saw the post about my faulty Distress re-inkers, an update - I e-mailed Ranger with a picture of them, and the following day I had an e-mail back apologising for them, and asking for my address so they could send me out replacements! How's that for Customer Service?
So I shall catch up with you all over the next few days, ( I'm on afternoon shift, and I've got Physio Thursday morning), so may take me a couple or three days this week. Have a great Wednesday.
