Family tree

Yesterday DH went with Russ and two other friends to watch the one day cricket at Trent Bridge in Nottingham. Sandwiches were packed and flasks were filled, as the match wasn't scheduled to end till 10.30pm! After I had waved them goodbye, I used the morning to do a bit of serious cleaning (well, it has to be done sometimes) and after lunch settled down to do some serious sewing, knowing that I could keep going as long as I liked. All was well till I was just going to break for a spot of tea about 5.30. when DH rang to say the match was finished and they were on their way back! Apparently England just wiped the floor with South Africa, and the match was finished in half the time allotted. Much as I was pleased to see DH return, I was sorry that my sewing time had been cut short.

I really wanted to get on with my family tree quilt, but am quite pleased with it so far. My family and my DB's family are complete and looking good. I couldn't get David to hold hands with his sister, and even unpicked it all, to no avail. Still, as my Mum would say, 'a blind man would be pleased to see it', so it's staying. Christine Thresh was quite right not to have her people holding hands - it's not that easy!

I'm so jealous that your hubby went to see the cricket. I had to settle with watching it on the TV. THe final Test is coming to Cardiff next week so hopefully I'll get to go there.
Love your quilt so far.

Love and hugs gina xxx

Your family tree is wonderful. I agree that it must be hard to have them holding hands. I've done some people but not so detailed and no families.

LOL @ The blind man. My mother would have said, 'you two wouldn't hold hands anyway!'
