As I write this, I’m cowering at one end of my living room, where the computer is, while the most enormous spider canters round my sewing area at the other end. It’s a shame because I was actually on a bit of a roll with the project I started playing with over the weekend. Maybe it knew I was still missing my binding fabric (that I’m hoping will arrive in the next day or so), but either way, I do hope it doesn’t think it’s moving in there…
Finishes This Week:
Ha, not one little thing
In Progress This Week:
During my enforced internet outage last week this progress to all the curves sewn and 2/8 rows sewn together, but although my camera was still functioning just fine, I failed to take a photo of the whole thing on the design wall in my excitement to get it sewn together, sorry!
I played with a few new techniques over the weekend, but the spider has foiled my attempts at a near finish:
To Be Worked On This Week:
My spider assassination skills/denial skills
Finishing the ‘play’ project
Working with some Tula goodness
Linking up with Lee and the gang:
Way too many spiders around at the moment! Loving the quilt
Get some conkers and put them around your house. They hate the smell of them. Chuck a shoe at the one that's there!! Ergh!!
Never mind a shoe, get the hoover out and treat him to a go on the arachnid waltzers! *wonders where the nearest conker tree is*
Not sure about shoes, hoovers or conkers……….I think you can get catchy thingies on the end of a pole……not sure where they can be bought tho so possibly not so helpful. Probably better lurking in your sewing area rather than your loo?! Juliex
Love the quilt! And highly entertained that "spider assassination/denial" is on your to-do list!
I would not even be in the same room with that thing.
Thin card and a glass you scaredie custard! Glass over it, slide card underneath and the shake out the window. Wimp, it's only a bloody spider.
XXX – for you not the spider!
I think your dad should come and show you, personally; I would be chucking the glass across the room and running the other way.
Love the quilt though xxx
At the risk of sounding unsupportive –unless that cantering spider was the size of as dinner plate ( and that’s without the legs ) Im calling you a wuss. Grab a can of spider spray or a winter boot and get rid of that sucker.
Love what Im seeing with the quilt – no matter what stage of finished its currently at!
I hyperventilate over spiders but frequently finding myself home alone when they appear I have had to resort to chemical measures- kybosh is the answer. I feel slightly guilty gassing them but I didn't invite them in so …
Love your lv and curves quilt!
You do realise the poor spider is more afraid of you!! Love the colours in your quilt! Jxo
Squish it. Who cares if it rains……..
You can sew more ; )
Love your projects
I'm with you on the ignoring — if I'm alone when I happen on a creepy crawly, I ignore it until it hides itself away. >_<
loving the look of that quilt Katy – stunning! When Sarah 'Quilt Candy' stayed with me for the SG weekend I had to 'degrade and destroy' a spider that was lurking in wait for her in the shower, so don't think it's just you!
i was logged in as my OH there (Colin) when I commented sorry Katy x
Do as your dad says, there's a good girl!
Do you know how many eyes spiders have???!!!! work equally hard on your denial and ninja skillz, cause they're both gonna need to be astounding. just like that fabulous quilt 😉 XX!
I like that curvy one… I would not have picked you for an arachnophobe…. I wonder if there is a 'fear of finishing'? I think i suffer from that.
Far out!! Spiders scare the begeesus out of me. I hope you found a way to deal with it. You know I love that DP quilt!!
Oh wowza! Your quilt is absolutely delish!
That's looking fab! You've just reminded me I put a glass over a doodler about 4 hours ago, fully intending to scoop him outside – but I forgot!!!
Eh? Thanks spell check! *spider*
