Getting on with just one or two interruptions

I write about these two masks further on in this blog I seem unable to put photos in the right place
                                 Florrie joined me as I was trying to work out the final colour for the border
                                 I made the quilt with crazy patches as I wanted to use up some of my odd
                                 bits of material.I have another one in progress, not quite the same but it is
                                 again  fairly simply made and will be the same size.
I have managed to make a journal page every day.It really pleases me that I can't wait to make a page first thing in the morning,and it is getting easier to draw ,paint or whatever my thoughts dictate at that moment. I then began a search for some purple material to put the edges on one of my quilts. While doing this I came across a bag of several swallow masks. I'd had them a long time and alawys thought one day I would use one of them at a fancy dress party. That day hasn't arrived yet. I showed them to Tony who immediately said "if you don't want them I will put them on my auction site" I suddenly became very possesive about them,but in the end conceeded he could have 4 and I would keep the two in the photo.I bought them over here in Paris long before we lived here. I also have a huge bag of brooches made in a similar way,smaller and with out the black swallow mask of course.I have no idea what I will do with them.
