Stung I was on Wednesday. Apparently if I had have stayed calm when the bee flew into my ponytail I might have avoided the sting. Or so Tim says. I haven't been stung by a bee since 2001 so I had forgotten that it does hurt a little bit. You would be forgiven for thinking that if the bee was in my hair that I was stung somewhere on my face or head but no, in my crazy get it off me dance (which was no doubt entertaining to watch) I was stung on the hand. Today I knelt on a stinging nettle and in my opinion that feels worse than a bee sting. Maybe I should stay safely indoors... I don't think so.
I finished off my picnic rug that I am sending to an old friend. It is definitely not an adventurous quilt and really feels a bit like cheating but I'm happy enough with the end result. And who can complain when you can go from having nine fat quarters to a quilt top in a couple of hours.
With all of the busy/ hot work here this week, I haven't even thought about wearing a frock but if I did, I would definitely join Kylie in her quest. Kylie is participating in Frocktober to raise funds to support research into ovarian cancer and by the looks of things she is having a load of fun doing it. I hope you can have a look at her page and leave a comment as a way of support or make a donation to such a worthy cause.
