I missed making Pippi for Bee blessed the first time around, so I made sure I made one when Sarah posted the block for March
This was a lot of fun to do: I think they help to channel an 'inner you'
I also got Sheilas Bee blocks done, she is making doll quilts for her granddaughter, so these were cute to make: tiny little granny squares
And I also managed to use up some more scraps in my 'Scrumptious Spools' mini, the scraps were all 1"
I am dissapointed that the middle spool is slightly wonky, but hope my friend likes it. I popped it in the post today, so fingers crossed!
This weekend I did a little of "how the other half live"
A group of us from work went and had a day out in London, including afternoon tea at Harrods
It really was everything you would expect it to be. The sandwiches and cakes were amazing: one of these between two people! (We all took doggy bags home)
We also went to see Jersey Boys, and the went to Chinatown for supper: I still can't believe we had a huge Chinese after our Harrods tea.
This was all in aid of my friends 50th. You may remember the red granny I started last weekend, well I turned it in to this
Which I will be gifting to her tomorrow.
Now, I could definitely get used to a life like that!
I have enjoyed a lovely relaxing week off work and have particularly enjoyed the winter Olympics: great for sewing along to.
My friend had asked me to cover some foam cushions for her new summerhouse. She had a 4ft and a 6ft bit of foam
It was a struggle sometimes; fabric and foam don't mix very well. But I did finish it, along with 2 of the 8 cushions that she also wants
And they look great in their new home
It is her birthday next week so I thought I would add a splash of red to her room with a cushion
I just need to quilt it and get it ready for next week.
Well done to all team GB at the winter Olympics: it has been amazing to watch: I am glad I am back at work tomorrow, I won't have time to sit around and miss it all!
