A Good Time was had by All

Kathleen and I went to a workshop at Bramble Patch last Saturday and we had a smashing day. We were making a cushion with lots of raw edge applique and it was a lot of fun to do. The cushion with the dark sky is a winter version of Summer Street and I would like to do one of these too. It took ages to get all the bits on and we only managed to get to the first house and start putting on the windows,curtains and doors, I loved doing the tree. My cushion is the one with the green door and Kathleens is the other so now we have to get on and finish the it. We had a beautiful day yesterday the sun shone all day and it was quite warm but today it is back to normal and it is a bit grey. Tony and I are off to the Shepton Mallet Antiques Fair this coming weekend and as it's my birthday on Sunday (65years) we are taking the caravan and having a few days break. I am looking forward to mooching through all the antiques, I can't think of a better way to spend the day. I hope you are all o.k and I will post about the antique fair when we get back.

The cushion appliqué looks most effective and I'm sure you had a lot of fun doing it. Have a lovely weekend and very many happy returns.
