Daylight Saving...Blogtoberfest Day 2

The first day of daylight saving.
At 9am the temperature was 13°C
Now the temperature is 14°C
It's pretty much rained on and off all day.
Some sunshine, mostly cloudy.
And cool, a shut-the-door-and-put-the-heater-on kind of cool.

Not that I'm complaining.
A nice wishy washy day that means a nice slow day - no one in the house really wants to do anything too strenuous...

even my sewing machine...
Urgh - pulling out the manual (well I never can remember which way to turn the dial!), rethreading, dusting the innards, changing the needle...
...and unpicking....urgh...with a capital U!

As a distraction, I went visiting some blogs with "quilt" in their if you got a visit don't be worried about a weird's just me.

Maybe tomorrow I'll pick another random word
and visit some of you fellow Blogtober-ers.

Anyone can drop in and say hi to them too. You'll find them here at Cathy's blog

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...


  1. arrggghhh. Tension problems are a pain. I, too, need to get out the manual when I need to adjust my tension, and think really hard!

  2. Thanks for the visit. I like how you decide who to visit.

  3. I bet your machine was happy to be having a spring clean even though it feels like winter!!!!

  4. Thanks for stopping by. I too have been checking out blogs in Blogtoberfest. There is so much to explore!

    Today I am chuckling because I really dont know, is 13 degree C or 14 degree C a good thing or a bad thing?

    PS. Love your blog - its so full of color.

  5. We definately seem to be sharing weather. Been grey and grim and drizzle all day. Perfect for waffling.
