On my list today...

  1. Do the washing

  2. Empty the dishwasher

  3. Take Wilson for a walk

  4. Make son's lunch for 6th form trip

  5. Go to charity warehouse to source more fabric

  6. Go shopping

  7. Pack shopping away(I hate that bit)

  8. Finish making cover for hall table

I'm pleased to say I've managed to do the all by lunch time except No.8, that is still a WIP, do you want to see?

The dress I was going to use was stitched in panels so I had to rethink. Idecided to make a patchwork cover and mixed it in with other fabrics. The beige rose fabric is the dress. I also used an offcut of my daughters curtains, a pillowcase and leftover cushion faric I've had for a few years!And do you know what, I'm really pleased with it so far! I need to add 1 more panel, back it and then add the pompom trim!

I'm off to make myself some lunch while Wilson has his little nap(tired from his walk)

I always hate unloading the dishwasher - I sometimes pay the eldest boo to do!

Love your patchwork cloth - the colours are inspiring.

unstacking the dishwasher is my top hate, followed closely by putting the food shop away. I just stuff it all in the fridge and hubby hates that I don't do it neatly and rotate!!!!!! I know by doing that he re-does it all later!

Your table cover looks awesome! well done! I just need to get to grips with my sewing machine! xxxxxxxxx

Hurrah another list maker :)

Almost finished my today list of boring stuff - just putting clean sheets on bed left to do. Then I can start on my 'nice' list which is items that need making for swaps/giveaways :)

Well done! My list went weird when I shifted half of it to Thursday, and did half of Thursday's things today! I have a terrible feeling some things will get left out altogether...

Thanks for your comment. I think you have been very strict on yourself with the Challenge - perhaps tougher than I ever was! I see what you mean about the change of season making it harder. Hold on in there, and I'll basically be still doing it too!

Lovely colours, particularly the red and white. Great to tick things off the list isn't it? x

Check you out all organised and finding time for making VERY pretty things. I am very jealous.
Your cover is looking really lovely x

During the markup to Quarter Fixedness 2267, the jaws proposing online gambling ordinance, opponent Spencer Bachus often referred to an article in the Orlando Sentinel as heralding the incipient dangers of Internet gaming. Bachus said the notepaper bemoaned the lure Internet cafes posed to children, and argued this meant accepting online casinos means subjecting kids to risk.

Bachus repeated the citation a number of times during the execution of the exchange alongside the Legislature Pecuniary Services Cabinet, as if he had discovered a in the red kernel of fact gaming proponents could not refute nor digest. But the Alabama Republican had either accidentally or pointedly muddied the splash with misleading information.
