I enjoyed a lovely weekend. On Saturday, The Posse congregated at my crib for a sew-fest. As always the day was relaxing and laced with a smattering of chocolate and a lot of
gossip information sharing.
Loz treated us to show and tell as well as a fascinating story about how she doesn't see the point of Pinterest. After I'd washed her mouth out with soap and water she showed us this gorgeous antique quilt she recently bought home from her US trip.
But wait! There's more.
Loz delivered a long awaited package foe me from Annie which contained Fudge Oreos (my absolute favourites ) and this cute gift tin.
This is what was inside. A vintage thread spool that unrolls to show this saying. I love it Annie!
I spent the forenoon grizzling (loudly ) about how many hexies I had to separate from paper. I also announced I was going to publicly name and shame anyone who didn't help unpick hexies during the course of the day. Blackmail is awesome . By the time everyone left every single one of those hexies was naked. I was also crowned the Queen of Over-gluing. Thank you ladies for helping me and not battering me to death with one of my own chocolate dipped double stuffed Oreos.
I crossed another February job off my list. Meet the fabric for my armchair re-upholstery project. It's hopefully on a plane as we speak and heading for my house.
On Sunday I hit the ball out of the park when I made this cake. Looks pretty and tasted good too. Score!
And I got the urge to challenge myself on Sunday and shelved my plans to finish the quilting on the Superheroes quilt (yes I have started !) and decided to make myself a lunch pail for work instead. Psttt...If you want to make one the tutorial is over at Pink Penguin.
That's what I call a jam packed weekend.
