Saturday last saw No 1 Daughter and me off to Leeds for a rather special afternoon tea. Sitting in the Sky Bar of the Hilton the vista of city spread out around us, sipping a glass of chilled Prosecco and enjoying a superb vegan tea we gathered to celebrate soon to be No1 Daughter-in-law’s Hen Do (hope you followed that twisty windy sentence!).
It was lovely to join RS’ wonderful family and friends and be counted among the women that are important to her. I hope my little needle-felted bridal hen goes some way to saying thank you.
As for going dotty. Later in the week and back home I was ratching through my scrap fabric store looking for inspiration and found it: a small bag of pinked squares that I won in a raffle more years ago than I care/dare to remember!
What a super prize. And more than enough for the little project I had in mind.
Which to choose? I couldn’t resist going dotty and with help from Jolly Janome a couple of hours later
I had a warm-hued cushion ready for making the autumn evenings a wee bit cosier.
Good to use up the odd shaped batik off-cuts from the making of a tunic to finish the front and
jazz up the back.
Now suffering with a cold (poor old dear) I am glad to have a snug well cushioned corner where I can lie down with a box of tissues, mugs of hot lemon and a great deal of self pity!
Until next we meet,
