Wonderful Wales!

Rosie and I are just back from a wonderful weekend in Wales, visiting Jennifer. We talked, sewed, enjoyed fabulous food, pottered round the antique shop and even watched Titanic! The weather was glorious, perfect for the barbecue. Along with croquet, table tennis and boules, we managed to be very productive on the sewing front...


Rosie made a lovely tote bag for her teacher. You can just about see the crab fabric in the lining - bought for the purpose after the teacher put a plastic crab on Rosie's shoulder one day, making her jump out of her skin! 

I whipped up tissue holders for other teachers and even managed to follow a pattern and make my first dumpling pouch! Jennifer made me the beautiful peg bag, and I hand stitched a few pieces for my next mini quilt.

It was such a relaxing time, can't wait for next time :-)

  2. You look so happy and relaxed in the sunshine. You're wearing co-ordinating colours, and have similar-ish haircuts. You could almost be sisters...
