Sampler Garden Casket



This weekend was the finishing weekend for Sampler Garden Casket, as you can see I didn't get very far. I had a busy weekend, so didn't have a lot of time, but this is my slow progress. I do prefer to take my time with the finishing though. I hope to get the bottom finished next weekend, and the casket lid. To see the casket and accessories, you'll find them on Judy's site. This was the Designing Ladies 2007 project.

For the third Sunday in a row, there was no JN.

And need to add, that we finally got the car going last Monday evening. Then on Tuesday night, the washing machine door fastener broke-arrggghhhh, but a new one is now on order, and I worked out a way to open the door using a teaspoon! More good news, DS17 passed his driving test on Thursday, and the bad news - the insurance company I'm with won't let me include him to drive my car. And I'm still waiting for them to get back to me to tell me why.

I've heard what a nightmare it can be to insure teenage kids on the family policy - hope you get it sorted soon.

That's a really lovely finish!

Congrats to DS, wonder why they wont add him on. I cant add DD to mine as we have a motor trader policy, She got some quotes and its going to be £1000 at least.

Your casket is looking superb, really looking forward to seeing it all done.

You've made great progress on your casket! How are you finding it to put together?

If its a big car or one that is considered a sports model that could be the reason. Cant blame them in the fact that fast cars and inexperienced drivers can be a lethal mix and even if your son is the careful type they dont know that.

Your casket looks lovely. Oh dear, that doesn't sound right at all! Your stitched box looks lovely!
Congrats to DS.

GC is looking great - looking forward to seeing more.
Congrats to your DS! Had the same problem when my DS passed - they wouldn't touch him for the Isuzu Trooper, so he bought a real Mini (old style) to keep mobile. His insurance has gradually come down over the years but is still more than DH pays on a much younger/nippier car. They tar all teenage motorists with the same brush, I'm afraid. :0(
