Karl went fishing the other day and came back in no time with three salmon. We gave the red flesh to the dogs - who love fish - and turned the white flesh into fishcakes with chilli sauce for us. OK, but I wouldn't go out of my way to have it again.
I have finally been able to just sew, which I have sorely missed over the past five months of being between houses. When I unpacked, I found all sorts of boxes of projects in various stages of unfinished-ness. I could never start something and see it through to the finish, without starting other things in between, so I have something of a collection of 'works in progress'. Rather than do a stocktake of all the UFOs and depress myself with a list, I just took the first box I opened, and went from there. It happened to contain a whole pile of half square triangles in greens and florals. I remember deciding to use them up when Margaret Rolfe's book came out. It must have been sitting there for at least 7 or more years. I distinctly remember that the green squares were cut from a pack of 7 inch charm squares - I did wonder why I had all these three and a half inch half square triangles, as they make up to 2 and 5/8th inch finished squares! Anyway, I sat and sewed them all together and now I have a quilt top which has one border on, and the outer border is cut, just waiting to be attached.
