Each October our schools have a two week holiday - this break is know locally as "the tattie holidays", traditionally this time off school was for the children to help with the harvesting of potatoes, now of course it's all done by machinery but the kids still get their "tattie holidays".
They've been off a week already and we are all totally in 'holiday mode' (never in a million years would my two get out of bed at 6 o'clock to go and pick tatties!) and living with two teenagers has also turned me into a lazy, lethargic lump - my get up and go has got up and went. I'm doing some school fairs in the run up to Christmas and I had full intention of using these two weeks to get cracking on my stock - but I can't be bothered!!
I have however finished my charity strip quilt, made up of 21 two and a half inch strips. The back of the quilt is one whole piece and it was put together using the 'quilt as you go' method.
