At 10 o'clock I will have my last coffee until tomorrow, after a medical test. No tea of coffee allowed for 24 hours and although I usually only have 1 coffee per day, tea for brekky and lunch, then either ginger or peppermint in the afternoon and chamomile at teatime, I must not have any, as they might contain caffeine.
I've picked a couple of lemons and will have hot lemon & honey to get me through. At least I can have a bowl of porridge and juice for breakfast. Luckily I drink plenty of water through the day anyway.
Now, what have I been up to this week. Not a lot, but with the Christmas Quiltalong challenge (no red or green allowed) underway and somebody joking about purple and orange, it got me thinking.
I've pulled this lot from both my stash and scraps, and an idea is brewing. Something might be revealed next month.
I had thought I could cheat a little when I first knew that the CQA was happening again this year, until I saw the rules.
No red or green, so no cheating. While working on last years CQA, I also made this little quilt that I designed to use the pink bauble fabric. Not quilted yet, but it is definitely on the green side.

Hopefully today, I may piece some leftover backing strips together and put them on the machine then lay out the many table runners I have made over the years and quilt them all at once. It is an idea I got from Bilbo.
Some were made just because and others to try out an idea. One was made from a design I saw on a "Fish & Chip Shop" floor. I sketched it on a napkin, then worked it out when we got back to the caravan. We were away on holiday, so ideas pop up in the most unusual places. Once they are done I will post and show what I quilted on each one.
Above are the said table runners, mats and maybe a cushion cover.
Well, that's all for today as I think maybe I should take it easy until tomorrow has been and gone.
I'm off for that coffee and biscuit. Have a lovely rest of week.
