At last, I've done some 'real' sewing - stitching different bits of fabric together! Not quite a quilt, I'm hoping to start on my Irish Chain quilt very soon, but satisfying none-the-less. Using Jenny at Elefantz's lovely pattern for a shabby chic heart I've made a simple cushion for my bedroom. The border fabrics are some scraps from other projects, which go really well with the shabby chic, cottagey feel I love. I'm planning to use her shabby chic roses pattern to make another cushion with similar borders.
And then I've finally finished a laptop cover for Alexander's partner; this has been ongoing for about six weeks, but life has intervened, but it's done now. I just have to hope it's not too late - if it is then I'll keep it for my laptop! I used this pattern.
This morning we're off to Bath, to visit the Bath Quilters exhibition - well I'll be visiting the exhibition, Christopher will probably be sitting having a coffee somewhere, reading the newspapers! I must remember to take my camera - and to leave my wallet at home.
And then this afternoon, we've got two single beds being delivered for our larger guest bedroom. We only ordered them yesterday, from a little independent bed shop in Wells. Hooray for independent shops - they might be a little more expensive than the big chains, but I'd rather use them any day.
