We headed off down the A1 this morning, Malcolm to visit his sister Jennifer, and I to have fun day with the Wednesday Ladies at The Quilt Shop. Ros has finished the bag that she was been working on when I was there two weeks ago. She prefers this side ......
but I like this one!
Ros's next project is quilting this beautiful fabric, to make a quilt for a friend. As she has her right arm in a stookie at the moment, having fallen while walking her dogs, I gave her a hand to pin it, ready for quilting
as always I had a browse round the new fabrics ...... lovely muted tones
....... vibrant colours
I was soon planning what I could do with this group of fabrics
I think these fabrics would make a lovely baby quilt
several of the Wednesday Ladies have bought this book ....... I am very tempted!
Avril was working on these blocks, which are a combination of applique and embroidery
I love Jill's delicate stitchery
Annie doesn't do subtle colours!!
Karen was working on an EPP project, with lots of Liberty fabrics (I WILL use mine one day!)
I liked the clever fussy cutting of the centre
drat - Malcolm came back for me just as I was paying for my purchases, so I didn't get the chance to hide them at the bottom of my sewing basket!!
and there may have been a little packet of buttons as well
do you remember when I was there two weeks ago, I suffered severe tin envy for Jill's tin? So I was absolutely delighted when Ros gave me this diary today, as she didn't need it!!
I opened it at random for this photo - how cute is the duck!!
as I write this, I am watching the weather forecast, with the bad news that Storm Doris is on its way - I don't think we will be going far tomorrow!
