By 6.30pm I had shipped the kids out to their youth group at church and met a friend for coffee in the neighbouring coffee shop. We had a good old rant about the busyness of life, moody kids etc. etc. and felt much better for it.
So engrossed were we in chatting (and then chatting to others we knew in the shop), we walked out of the coffee shop not realising we hadn't paid!!
It wasn't until I was in the car driving home that I realised we had bare facedly walked out of our local community coffee shop without paying. I almost crashed the car!! This is the same coffee shop that advertises my classes with a poster in their window!!
Of course the kids thought this was hilarious and took great delight in calling me a criminal. I telephoned my friend who was still in the vicinity of the shop, and she went back in and paid - phew!
I'm happy to say that today was a lot less dramatic, but no more productive in sewing terms. I did however get my Across the Sea QAL back pieces cut out (great cutting instructions Sarah - you're a brain!).
I may or may not put white around the crosses!
At first I wasn't going to go for a pieced back, but instead put a fleecy back on it. But then I realised I already have loads of solid blue leftover from my colour brick quilt plus a spare cross block that I didn't use in the quilt front.
So my idea now is to make this quilt like a day & night quilt - the front with the white background is day time napping, and the back with the solid blue and darker crosses is for night time napping! It just adds a little bit of interest, and I really like quilts that have a bit of a story to tell.
I'm teaching again tomorrow, visiting a friend in hospital and then down at church in the evening, so I don't suppose there'll be much sewing done tomorrow either.
