Labels and More Labels

Good Morning, it's a lovely morning here, very warm for some reason. Yesterday I spent the afternoon making labels, I love doing this fiddly work sometimes. I use the labels on special presents for friends and family and they also look good tied on a door knob in a pretty bedroom. I search everywhere for the small silk flowers that I use and I am sometimes lucky enough to find some in charity shops, the beauty of silk flowers is that they wash well and look good as new when dry.Kathleen and I are off to Fabric Guild now have a good day.

Cup Ckae Cushions

Hello, happy wednesday everyone, I love this little cushion it was so easy to make, I used a fleece blanket I had bought from Ikea for £2.50 and I will get at least 6 cushions from it.As you can see the pattern is by Gail Penberthy, I seem to like a lot of her patterns and I bought another one at Malvern it is a Tea Cosy with a Cafe frontage and you can personalise the cafe name to whatever you want, Lovely! I spent the morning yesterday drawing out a new wholecloth quilt pttern onto white cotton, Kathleen came to help and point me in the right direction, it looks lovely I am looking forward to quilting it. For a reward we had some lovely chocolate pud that I had made from a recipe I got from Cherry Menlove's site it was delicious and simple to make. I am now going downstairs to continue painting the skirting boards and windowsill in my dining room and as the sun is shining I may even do some washing, is'nt life wonderful.

Malvern p- A good Time was had by all.

Hello and a Happy Halloween to everyone. Well, we had a great day at The Malvern Quilt show, there was lots to see and plenty of lovely stalls to spend your money at. The weather was a bit damp but it did'nt dampen our spirits and we set off finally after Kathleen had gone back into the house about 3 times she was finally satisfied that we could go. We had such fun and as you can see Kathleen enjoyed the Pork and Cracklin Roll as usual, we all had one and they were delicious. Our feet were a bit sore and as usual we spent too much money but it was a great day. On the way home I took them on a scenic route as Worcestershire is my home stamping ground and we gave the motorway a miss for a bit and I took them through Worcester and into Droitwich and then onto Hanbury where there is a lovely craft centre called 'The Jinny Ring' you can see them blowing glass and making jewellery and pottery there is a place that is making chocolates as you watch , we bought somethings from there, then there is a delightful shop which sells lovely stuff and I had to drag them out of there. There is also a restaurant and we decided that we would go there for a meal before christmas so that is something else to look forward to. Tony and I have started decorating the lounge today and everything is in uproar but it will be lovely when it's done. Oh and Yippee I have got my 50th follower thankyou all of you lovely people.
