Before you start looking accusingly at me, I did three loads of laundry, hung them out and stacked the dishwasher before I sewed up Blue Boy here.

So, a nice pair of egg cosies. Tick.

NOW I can start quilting.

It’s not often that my breakie egg gets my creative juices flowing…

But it was a nice brown free range one, soft boiled, and it was just a tiny bit cold, as I got distracted (not hard). It struck me that I have no egg cosies. Normally I eat it as soon as I’ve boiled it. So while I scoffed my egg, I thought about what I wanted. I had some nice pieces of brightly coloured felt (not the real handmade stuff, but some commercial bits), and I thought I’d use that.

Two hours later...

Not too bad for two hours’ work. And my next egg will stay nice and warm. I’ve already cut out a blue one as well, on the basis that hens need a rooster around, and the Husband doesn’t much like a cold egg either. Whether he’ll use something so relentlessly cute is another matter entirely. Maybe to please me…?

OK, back to some proper work. Think I’ll go and mark up Broken Bottles for quilting. AFTER I’ve done the housework…
