Rainy day fun...

Pouring rain here, and gale force winds...the best kind of weather for a spot of sewing. I had a play with a Fig and Plum Jelly roll. I was hoping to get to the basting this afternoon, but it's too wet to even wander over to the sewing room!


Good weather for playing board games though...especially my latest birthday present.
My lovely quilter friend, Robyn, surprised me with this little delight on the weekend, have you seen it?

Stitcher's monopoly! How great is that! The counters are a thread cutter, cotton spools-you get the idea. And the properties are all stitch instructions.
........Now, if I could only convince DH how much he would really love to play!!!

What a great version of Monopoly. I hadn't heard of that one.
We play the Welsh version, but not very often as Gemma cheats.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Wonder if we could get a cyber game going? I haven't seen this game yet, but I do like Monopoly. Seems that it would be good fun to sit around the game, chatting away the stormy weather.

The winds were scary, your Monopoly reminded me of winters of times past. I never did get the hang of Monopoly is it like the """" the one who dies with the most fridge magnets wins """"

Tracey Do you have the book The day the Chickens blew away ?
