What I have been up to since my last posting, well I will start with the boring bits to get them out the way lol
I have had to go for my eye check-up at the hospital as I have glaucoma, anyway the the check-up 2 before this one on the field vision it had changed the last one more or less the same this one well they didn't do it so I asked if I am okay to drive, well I have to tell the DVLA (driving licence people) so I come home to find out the number by going to their website & there is info on there seems I should have told them I have glaucoma when I first was told well no one told me.
Anyway downloaded the forms & filled them in as the Dr at the hospital said my vision is okay but it not up to them so I now have to wait to see if I can continue to drive until they say I will carry on.
During the week I had my upgrade to EQ7 this is what my DH paid for for my birthday which was yesterday, I also got from my friend Pat a June Taylor Shape cut Pro it is 20 by 23 inches & has slots every 2.5 inches this is something i will use a lot.
Yesterday I went to my Quilting group which was great so had lots of fun there we did a small runner but I hadn't cut enough for the 2nd border so I couldn't carry on with that so I finished sewing the triangles I had bought pre-cut together, when I got home DH had made me a trifle for after dinner really nice.
If you had seen my earlier post about the Missouri Star Quilting company & their video on Youtube, well I decided that I would get a 2 FQs & cut them up to different square sizes & do the pinwheel their method to see how they came out.
I have squares all up to near the inch or half inch in all but one,
10 inch squares I squared up to 12.5 inch block
8 inch squares I squared up to a 10 inch block
6 inch squares I squared up to a 7 inch block
5 inch squares I just cut the ears off & it comes out to 5 3/4 inch block
4 inch squares I squared up to 4.5 inch block
The 7 inch squares I made a mistake in cutting & the 9 inch didn't have enough but it gives me a idea of what size squares to cut for what size block you can see the results below
So all in all not a bad end to a week where I done nothing craft wise
