Lazy summer days

There hasn't been an awful lot of sewing going on here. Beccy and I took ourselves off to Woodbridge in Suffolk on Saturday and had a mooch around and then Sunday was so lovely it was too nice to be inside
So I got on with my label for the BQS3: I was inspired by the fabulous name badge that Lucy made for me-her stiches were amazing. Mine are nowhere near as good as hers, but I am pleased with how it has turned out

 I can now get this sewn on to the back of the mini and then get on with some hand stitching

I received some delicious post this week, fabric from Pink Castle Fabrics: all in their sale, half a yard of each.  I don't normally splash out like this, but when I saw the sale prices it was mad not to!!

 I have been sitting in a boiling hot office this week - I finish for the summer next week, around the time that the weather is set to go back to being unsettled!  I believe it hit about 29 degrees here today, so we splashed out on a disposable bbq

Beccy doesn't eat meat, so we only need a tiny bbq and these are perfect.  This was the toasting marshmallow stage (best bit!) Beccy also doesn't do bugs of any description, which is why she is sitting all regal like on the chair!  This is our 1st bbq of the year, I hope there will be plenty more

I will be posting off my purse tomorrow for the purse swap - can't wait to see who has got what!


  1. Lovely fabric - looking forward to seeing who got what in the swap too

  2. Great swap tag.
    MMmmm BBQ - I could just go a toasted marshmallow right this second.

  3. Was at my 1st BBQ of the year today nephew's 2nd birthday party!!

  4. Great fabric choices I got caught up on their site too, still waiting for my order to arrive.
    Yay BBQ's are so much fun, big or small =D

  5. Lovely stitching on your label :-) Toasted marshmallows are soooo good..... I'll just do mine on the gas hob then....

  6. Oh, toasted marshmallows...I'll be at the hob with Sarah ;o)

  7. Your stitches look gorgeous! Love the fabrics too! Mmmm marshmallows :)
