What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #155

I found my way to Portland and back again with no problems. It must have been down to all your good wishes, because it surely was not my doolally satnav. However an hour into the journey my car decided it didn’t fancy going into third gear any more. The last half hour of driving was a bit of a challenge!

This afternoon I pulled out the strips for my temporarily abandoned quilt project. I need some plain fabric for the sashing and was looking for a cheaper alternative to Moda Bella and Kona Solids. I found Klona plain fabrics at Backstitch yesterday and ordered a swatch card, which arrived this morning. Very fast service.

Also on the desk floor today are a few fabrics I picked out to make myself a new peg bag. I want to hang it on the line so I bought some cheap children’s coat hangers. The floral prints at the back are to make a couple of summer skirts. Oops! I’m supposed to be keeping it short. Sorry Julia.

Great fun fabrics. I laughed about your satnav. A friend had me use hers once and the darn thing would tell me to take the next turn, which I would. Then it would tell me as soon as legally possible make a U-turn because it didn't really mean the next turn but the one after that.

It says a lot about me that the moment the Satnav told me to take a right turn, I immediately wanted to disobey it and go left!! How sad is that, I really must get over this rebellious streak in me - it's not good at the ripe old age of 50!!
Gorgeous fabrics btw, makes me want to come and play :)
Hugs. LLJ #57 xx

love the fabric squares! I have a horrible time with the sat nav. I always make the wrong turn and get paranoid that the droids are going to take away my license! Have a great day! vickie #28

Lovely fabrics for your quilt. Looking forward to a peek of the completed quilt. (Don't feel pressured!!) I hope your car starts to co-operate very hard when you have to raise your voice at the satnav and the car.

A very vintagey summery selection of fabrics - lovely!

Does the car still not want to do third gear or has it stopped have a tantrum now?

Thanks for stopping by!
