pegs, labels and tennis...
Ah - the first day of Wimbledon so the heavens have opened. It has become as much a part of the tradition as the strawberries and cream - but it makes the house so gloomy. Come back sun - please.
The weekend was a real mixed bag - trips to find out about renting self-storage spaces (boy are they creepy), to stationery superstores, parties and fetes.
I finally found some dolly pegs - I have been looking for some for a while now - I had found some on the internet but the post and package charges were double the cost of the pegs in the first place. They were in a shop just around the corner though I swear to goodness they weren't there on Friday.
There are no plans afoot to make peg dolls with them but rather I want them to help plan out some designs I have in mind.
I also have to make a card for a friend, I thought about making one of my corsage cards but fancy trying something a wee bit different - but her birthday is on Wednesday, so it needs to be in the post tomorrow at the latest so with time against me I may well plump for the tried and tested.
Also my new dolliedayream labels arrived this morning but they are wrong - entirely my own silly fault but such a nuisance.
Following on from Friday's w.i.p I also bought some narrow masking tape. I plan to use it to mark out the diagonal lines on the quilt top as I have been using the lack of effective line-marking as an excuse not to progress with it. I claim no credit for the idea as I read about Jane using this method over on Yarnstorm.
I was really hoping for some brilliant sunshine because I have got some solar plate I wanted to expose and take to my class tomorrow. I only have a few more lessons because I decided not to enrol next term so my chances to use the press are limited.
I hope to goodness tomorrow is a better day weather-wise because my son has his sports day.
