Had an impromptu sewing day on Friday at Rae’s home as Jen R was visiting from Sydney. Jen and I worked together many years ago in a patchwork shop and I have always admired (and longed to emulate!) her fabulous design and colour style with her quilts. So it was with a day filled with great excitement and anticipation!
I was up early and made a Walnut Cake. I’ve been watching lots and lots of re-runs of The Great British Bake Off to the extent that I took out a Paul Hollywood book “British Baking” at the library this week. The recipe for the cake is from that book and it was deemed a hit.There were other lovely treats to be had too and in amongst catching up on all the news there was a little sewing. Jen is making this gorgeous Double Four Patch using only Liberty fabricsAmanda stitched the last of the blocks for her next quilt (which is one of Rae’s patterns)Rae was cutting up for a new quiltand I nearly finished the last of the 15 blocks of “Parsons Geese” (finished on Friday night).A very lovely day, indeed!!
