Yes it is raining, but my ole man is not a snoring, but at least he has to stay indoors today and take a rest.
But first he needed to help me pack a parcel. Chloe's Cuddles was all finished and I need to get it into a smallish size package for posting. I have instructed The Scot if we ever get a chance we must take out shares in Australia Post, the rate I am going I rekon I could buy them out, it would be cheaper.
But I digress... we need to pack the quilt small, so that it would travel. We have devised a scheme whereby we eject the air and seal the bag (using a bag sealer The Princess gave us) but today we were out of bags, so we had to improvise.
I managed to find a bag of Humpty Dumpty Fibre Fill which was the right size. The Scot found a larger plain plastic bag to transfer the fibre fill into.
All was going well, I wasn't going to fancy wrap it, as the air ejection spoils the wrapping. So I placed a lovely lilac decorated bag inside the envelope for Jules to wrap it in before giving the quilt to Chloe. Note Jules shake the quilt and then fold and place in bag please. :)
then we needed to expel the air. Umm as the bag was not the proper type it would not fit into the electric sealer. So we had to resort to good old fashion ways.
The Scot assummed Control as he usually does but with my 2nd in Command Instructions coming through loud and clear.
We needed a bit of weight on the quilt to expel the hot air, As I was the fattest heaviest one I had to stand on the pacel and The Scot being bossy more adept, was in charge of the sealing.
Then it wouldn't go in the envelope....... the Scot wanted to start again, but as you know I never give up without a fight, so eventually
One very tightly sealed quilt all packed ready for delivery.
A little bit of Aussie stitched into a Cuddle Quilt for Chloe.
