Does everyone get nervous about dentist appointments? I definitely do, to the point of my legs shaking. I had a clean and checkup this morning, and I only need one filling, which is a repair of an older filling. DaddyMopar is having this week off before he starts a new job, so we decided to go to the park so Squeak could feed the ducks in a local park.

Our local park is more of a nature reserve, with a lake fed by a creek, and some very well fed ducks. As we parked our car we were greeted by a duck, followed in, then followed by about a doen ducks to a picnic table. We had brought bread for the ducks, and cheese and bacon rolls for us. Squeak loved the ducks, she had a massive grin as we threw crusts, and all the birds ran to get them. It was a nice winter’s day.

This evening I had a few hours to myself, so I worked on Squeak’s quilt. The top was completed, so I had to assemble the batting and backing, the get out the sewing machine and start quilting. There was nothing on TV, so I put on a dvd of ‘darling buds of may’, and spent half an hour looking for thread. I had read years ago that only cotton thread should be used in quilting, so I searched for my stash of cream cotton thread. after 30 minutes of searching and only finding polyester or non matching colours, I admitted defeat and picked a reasonable colour

Yes, I used Yellow

I got about a quarter of the way through quilting before I ran out of thread. It was only 100m, so I will have to pop down to the local quilting shop for thread, and a new circular knitting needle to knit a new jumper for Squeak

Do you have any suggestions for which pattern I should knit?

Lots of love,
