The Dice Rolls 5, again

Who would believe it!  For three weeks in a row, my pretty pink dice has come up with the number 5 from my UFO list.  And I gave it a really good shake around too.  But never mind – rules are rules, so number 5 it is again.  For those who don’t know, or have forgotten, that means that for the current week, I’ll be sitting at the sewing machine working on my black and grey blocks for grand-daughter Emma’s surprise horse quilt.

Number 5, three weeks in a row!

We were away in our caravan over Easter taking part in a huge Easter Rally (read about what we got up to here) so of course I didn’t have my sewing machine with me.  But I managed just a little stitching done on one of my Christmas ABC blocks.  We were on the go for the long weekend, and luckily the Easter Bunny managed to track us down, to leave us Easter Eggs and Easter Buns.  Muffy came along too, and spent the weekend snoozing her days away inside the caravan.  She is not too keen to venture out much these days, the world has turned into a scary place for her.

With Easter intervening, cleaning and unpacking the caravan, doing several loads of washing, I didn’t get to roll the dice till today, Tuesday.  So I plan to start the week off with slicing up plenty of sashing strips all ready to start stitching tomorrow.  I don’t really enjoy sitting at the sewing machine late in the afternoon (like today) so will be all ready for an early start tomorrow.

I'm envious of you getting to that Craft Rally. I could have spent a good couple of hours there. Your cat is lovely; a great photo of the two of you.

Interesting. I seem to run out of steam after about 3 hours. I used to do my best work between 8 and midnight, but not any more! I'm going to go check out your rally. I so MISS roaming around the country with my husband in our 5th wheel.

Muffy is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! She is a dead ringer for my Bella, although Bella is very tiny, just 6.5 pounds. Bella is a Himalayan, and I see Muffy is a Birman. Are they the same thing do you know? Or related clearly somehow...
