Busy Saturday

Saturdays are usually about either sewing all day or going into the village for a paper and having a coffee in the pub. 
So yesterday started with sewing at the Bramble Patch with Bren. Lots of Lutrador painting and FMQ. Lots more work for this one - but I'll keep you posted.
But it finished with me, DH and some friends sitting in a field watching Alvin Stardust and then Dr and the Medics. It's true - honest.
It was a fun eveing and they both did rally good sets. Lots of dancing an d a little drinking.
What have you all been up to?

Busy busy busy


So here is the finished item I was teasing you wit on one of my previous posts. It was a cushion I made for a friend for her birthday. She was really please with it.
I've also spent the last 2 days at the Bramble Patch with Sheena Norquay - and here are the results from the end of day one:
We started by using an array of items to print with on my dyed fabric. We used lids, corks, screws, cotton reels and cotton buds. I promise to post the results when I've finished it. I've also managed to  master the use of metallic thread - I had a bit of an issue with it and have been rather nervous about using it.  But I can only say I can free motion quilt with metallic thread. Yay.
And I'll be off to Bramble Patch again on Saturday for another lovely day with Bren.
Hope you're all enjoying the sunshine.

I did it


Yep - I managed the 5k in 37:10 which is considerably faster than my last 5k effort.
And here's the proof. 
I'm now going to relax.

Lots of sewing...

I've been a busy girl - honest.
So here is a cushion I've made for the Market Bosworth festival where we have the quilt exhibition. This cushion for the cushion raffle.
I've also made a present for someone special - but I can't show you it all until I've handed it over...
And I've got something else on the go too....
So....
There you go - I've been busy honest.
Tomorrow I'm off to run the Race for Life - there's a link to my sponsorship page on the top right-hand side of my blog page if you'd like to make a contribution.
And I'm on holiday this week and I've got a class at Bramble Patch with Sheena Norquay.
And I was really pleased to see my quilt for the Margaret Every challenge on the Bramble Patch site. When I collect it later in the week I'll post a photo so you can see which on it is.
I hope you're all enjoying this lovely weather we having - after all the rain.
Have a good weekend and I'll post lots of photos of my class very soon.
