A colourful post today to take my mind off the black hole that is my kitchen!
I can hardly believe it but we have had our second fire in 8 months. The kitchen went up in flames on Monday evening. Thankfully the fire engines got here very quickly and it did not spread to any other rooms. An electrical fault in a bread maker (it was quite old) has been blamed. It is very embarrassing when the firemen say "We saw the address and thought 'We know where that is'".
No one got hurt though and for that I am thankful.
So there is going to be a lot of cleaning rather than stitching going on around here for the time being, and although I have had to put off my trip to the Festival of Quilts tomorrow I do hope to get there before the weekend is over.
The quilt top was put together a few days ago in the start of my bid to declutter all the fabric that has been gathering dust in the loft for too many years. This is designed randomly/Gee's Bend style with a little girl in mind. I plan to knock back the "sugariness" with some charcoal/grey threads, but perhaps I should be staying away from such colours at the moment!
I hope you are all safe and well and thanks for listening to my woes.
