Our perfect Autumn weather turned decidedly Wintery over the weekend. I changed three times before heading out to Mrs Mac’s for sewing on Friday; long sleeves first as it looked cool outside, then short sleeves ‘cos it seemed quite mild, then long sleeves again as the morning cooled considerably! I did draw the line at boots though.
Luckily Mrs Mac had a fire burning for us
and some of my friends had succumbed to the call of the boots!
Miss M had a pretty new bag
and Miss Kaye had a lovely old basket, complete with round handles,
and with the inside lid still in relatively good condition.
Apart from a good chat, there was lots of stitching
and, of course, what sewing day of mine with friends would be complete without…..food!
Delicious home made dip
a variety of scrumptious slices and scones
and even though it was a bit early, some Easter eggs
Earlier in the week I’d been out with GJ to IKEA to hunt down some storage for GJ’s sewing studio. We came back with four CD units (put together by clever GJ!), an idea spotted by GJ on Pinterest.
and I thought this rug would be perfect…..
On Saturday we started sorting and folding, placing the fabrics in the spaces, colour coding on the way
and doesn’t the rug look great with it?!
GJ also has a wardrobe from her growing up years now in use for storage too. I love the “appliqué” pattern on the doors!
There was food here too; the astute among you (surely that’s all of you!), will notice that it’s the same photo as Sunday’s!!
and for those who asked, yes, the hot cross buns were made by GJ’s own fair hand (with a little help from her new Thermomix!), and yes, they did taste as good as they look……
light, tasty, with just the right amount of spices….and very moorish!
Hope you’ve had a lovely Easter break……it’s back into the swing now!
