Wonderful weekend

Do you ever get to Sunday evening and think "what a lovely weekend"?  I've just had that kind of weekend. My most pressing assignments were all completed, I had finished off a couple of pillow shams to go with the quilt I handed over earlier in the week and so I headed off to the pretty town of Deal to see my friend Imelda. Now Imelda has recently discovered the delights of quilting and has bought herself a new sewing machine and a few books........ We chatted eagerly about projects and she is looking forward to the quilt show to be held at Detling Showground next Saturday.  Tonight I see from her social media comment she has turned her son's bedroom into her sewing room ( he has moved out!!!!). I just happened to mention it would make an ideal sewing room......

This morning I managed to finish off a couple of cushions that have been hanging around in the WIP bin and I got to sort out and rearrange my sewing room whilst listening to the Archers! Bliss.  Now I can't help from going in there and just looking at how lovely it all looks.

Then it was off to Canterbury for a birthday lunch and a spot of shopping with my Simon. The perfect end to a splendid weekend.

Here are my weekend finishes.

One of the pillow shams to go with the dashing stars quilt.


A cushion for my sewing room, made with the Moda 23 fabric.


A small cathedral windows cushion that has been waiting for a back for sometime now!!

Hope you've all had a great weekend. Jacky O

  1. How lovely to encourage your friend so much as she starts out in this wonderful hobby ... let's hope Imelda's son doesn't decide to move back home, hey?! Sounds like my kind of Sunday - love your projects. And Canterbury? Beautiful city - went to The Sewing Shop last summer - have you been?
