Finally feeling better

Happy weekend to you all 
Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I decided I wanted to go see 
50 shades the musical 
It was on not far from here at frankston and as there were only a few seats left I got a bargain 
Only sixty dollars each and we were in the front row 

Hubby wasn’t that enthusiastic but he had to come with me. It was Valentine’s Day after all lol 

It was really funny but be warned. It’s rude and crude and sexually explicit 
But it is 50 shades of gray 
Oh there are very athletic young men in various stages of undress. 
Guaranteed to give women of a curtain age a hot flush or two lol  

Today has been a day of relaxation and domestic bliss. 
Hubby drove me to spotlight as I wanted to get polyester wadding. 
I’m making little quilts for the local RSPCA and didn’t want to use my expensive bamboo wadding 
I’m hoping this means these little quilts will be more washer friendly 

Lately my machine has been giving me little hiccups and nudges telling me it needed a long overdue service. 
But today, it just flat out refused to work 
So I asked hubby if he could service my poor old Elly. Yes my sewing machines have names lol 

So hubby quickly YouTubed the process and started to take her apart. Oh my. She was full of fluff and lint 
Poor thing. 
She got a good oiling, and I took the opportunity to change the needle and wow. You should see her go now 

This is the first one done 
They are pretty on both sides and the wadding gives it a nice cuddle softness 

I’ve completed finished four here they ready to be delivered 

I’ve started matching colours,  even if they are going to puppies and kittens. They need to be cute lol 

Still lots of squares in my bag 
And I have another plastic bag full. 
I could be here a while lol 

So that was my Valentine’s Day and my relaxing Saturday 
With all this rain and flooding we have had,  I’m thinking tomorrow will be spent very similarly to today 
Or maybe I’ll continue working on my crochet squares 
Who knows
Enjoy the rest of your weekend 
See ya xxx


  1. Oh joy to have a handy hubby!!
    Your quilts are gorgeous. You're a very handy woman!

    1. Yes it is great. The only trouble is pinning him down to actually do it lol

  2. I love your little quilts...I'm sure the pups and kittens at the RSPCA will love them too. Something soft and cosy. How big do you make the squares for the quilts? Meg:)

    1. The squares were all precut. I bought them like that many moons ago
      I guess you could make them any size you want. I think these are about five inches or there abouts
