Crampy fingers and improving the mind!

Wow! I've just finished the freemotion quilting on my latest quilt and my fingers are all cramped up! It isn't even a very big quilt but I not going to show it until I get the binding sorted tomorrow hopefully!

How does that improve the mind I hear you ask? Well I'm a big fan of podcasts at the best of times and love the content available from the BBC. From comedy to science and everything in between.

The series I've been listening to while working on this quilt is a history of the world in 100 objects. All objects found in the British Museum. If you have even a passing interest in how human civilisation has evolved and you can access it where you are I can thoroughly recommend it. I'm only up to the Egyptians but each programme is short and gives a taster of what life was like at the time.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/ahistoryoftheworld/about/british-museum-objects/
