Well some time life gets in the way... and I have been really busy with family matters for the last 2 weeks and have not had time to get any sewing done.
A treasured Aunt & Uncle were over from America and have just celebrated their Diamond (60) wedding anniversary - incredible that they made the trip at their age. We all had a great time celebrating with them..
It culminated on Saturday with a family gathering for 40 ... so loads of food to prepare and whizzing around getting the house tidy - ugh.. the summer spiders are coming out. You know you have plenty of food when you can sit 12 people down for leftovers the next day....!!
So getting back to my sewing room was lovely - I finished up the samples for the FQ retreat swap, I can't decide whether to post a picture before the event or not...
I have been gathering the supplies for my classes at the Retreat.... I'm paper piecing, making a frame purse, a Union Jack pillow and trying out Lu Summers 'Portholes' technique. Then there are some group 'play' sessions as well so plenty to organise, I think my poor husband will think I am leaving for longer than 2 days when he sees the car packed.
With the weather getting better every day its nice to have some hand sewing to sit with and I have been starting the first block of my Fernhill Button club.... sew relaxing.
