ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE......
Good morning, hope you are all well! I am enjoying the last five days of my 50s, having fun and trying to stay (mostly) out of mischief, lol! The weather has been a lot cooler since last week, for which I am very grateful, I'm definitely a northern climate girl.
The JanCave has seen bit more action now it's less equatorial in there. I was asked for a peg bag and as I hadn't made one for ages, thought I'd dig out the pattern and remind myself of the order of construction.
I'd received some new fabrics through the post:
And was just having a look at them, they came from Amothreads, a company that deals in ends-of-line and deadstock fabrics. The selection does vary a lot but there's some good stuff in there and saves it from going into landfill. The above are all furnishing fabrics and were £4.50 a metre.
And amazingly, I found my old pattern straightaway! I thought that I was going to be short with the lining fabric but a little careful positioning saved the day - phew....
Bright and cheerful eh? I hope the lady likes it.
Talking about lovely colours, my SiL made a gorgeous baby quilt:
Isn't that a lovely combination? Jill put a soft green backing on, which finished it off a treat,
And on Monday, I met up with a Desker! Lisa-Jane was in the area and we met up for a couple of hours chat, it was great to see her:
Socially distanced of course! The last time I saw L-J was at a WOYWW Crop in Wiltshire, a good few years ago. Needless to say, there weren't many long awkward silences in the conversation, lol, both of us had a lot to catch up on. Good times.
Have a good week folks, I'm having family and friends around on Sunday for a little party, which should be fun!
