We had a very pleasant couple of days last week, when Number One Son came to visit. He was able to stay for three nights, which was great. On one of the days we took a trip to Bath, and visited the Roman Baths. We've been several times, but it was Oliver's first visit and he found it fascinating. I never mind visiting again, as there's always something new to see or to learn.
Whilst I was there I went into Country Threads and bought some fabric that I needed for a workshop that I was going to on Sunday. I had hoped not to buy any new fabric for a while yet, but just didn't have the colours I needed. However, I was lucky and was able to get most of them from their sale table.
The workshop was very good, but very intensive. I made about a third of the blocks needed and came away with an understanding of what was needed in order to finish it. Though I've been so tired since that I've not sewn a thing.
This was one of my July finishes - a needlecase and scissor keeper for my sister-in-law's birthday. I used the patterns in the Angels Story book. The scissors are really pretty, with marbled handles - I'm rather reluctant to part with them!
