Relaxing Weekend

This weekend was spent in front of a cosy fire turning a piece of fabric found in my mother’s store into a simple skirt.

The length of fabric that I used for the lining was also just right to lengthen a dress for my daughter.

The Granny Quilt

For several months, two grandmothers, regularly joined me at a Friday afternoon Sew-in-Company workshop to create the two sides of a delightful quilt for their first granddaughter.

‘Thank you so much for my lovely mat (which mum has only just unpacked!) It’s great for playing with my toys on while mum gets ready in the mornings and for watching Pinocchio on with dad before bath time – I love it!’

Grannies Caroline, Jackie and ‘Great-granny’ Pat loved making it too – with a little help from Sid!
