7 Shirts before breakfast!

Have you ever had that experience where you suddenly find your hubby's wardrobe is bare of work shirts?  Well I confess that this was my experience this week so I thought I had better do something about it quick!!  I set the alarm for an early rise and scurried down in my dressing gown to hit the ironing pile which, for sure, was getting rather out of hand!!  You will tell from this story that ironing is not something I LOVE to do!! And instead of doing it regularly, I do it when I have to mainly because it seems that only two minutes after you have ironed the shirt, blouse, napkin, duvet cover, teatowel, etc etc it is all creased again and I just cannot get excited about spending all that time for such a short return!!  I exaggerate I know!  But I managed 7 shirts before breakfast and the other 10 (!!!) by the end of the day, with a few napkins, and pillow cases thrown in.

On a more crafty note, here is a photo of the next quilt project I am working on.  It is a quilt for daughter no.2 in Uganda.  She picked out the charm pack which is called Portugal and is a delightful colourway - very jolly indeed to work on.  So some squares have been sewn into strips and we will see where we go from here.

I am often ironing first thing in the morning, but it is not a planned event, much more of a "mummy I haven't got any school uniform to wear".............

One of the good things about my husband taking early retirement is that I no longer have all those shirts to iron (I had given up on the trousers long ago and had them dry-cleaned!) I look forward to seeing the progress on the quilt - the colours are lovely. Have a good weekend, regards, Anne
