Anyway, it is quite cool and comfortable and I wore it around the house this afternoon. I took it off when I was working on my Miss Lydia Pickett 1/24th scale dresser kit, and put on old clothes in case I spilled glue/paint. The kit is looking pretty good, but I've had a few problems, will post a pic and commentary when I get it done. I've also been sewing the binding on my scalloped Dresden Plate tablerunner, and will post pics when that's done also. I've sewed a few more holly leaves on my second March applique block (guilt, guilt) and am very conscious that it's already the second week of April and I haven't even looked at the two applique blocks for April yet.
Tomorrow I need to find a box (will have to dump something out in the attic) to post my two quilt entries off to the Malvern quilt show - they have to arrive by 20th April. And I need to sew the entry labels on the back of them, then try to remove some of the cat hair and bearding to make them look a bit more presentable. I still don't know if I am going to get up to the show to see them hanging or not, it is about 3.5 hours away by train and I don't have a hotel booked or anything. I would like to go, haven't been back to that show for years. I don't enter shows very often, but when I do, I like to lurk around my quilt and eavesdrop on what people are saying about them, if anything. I probably look very suspicious, like some kind of stalker.
