Quite the Weekend!

Well there’s been lots going on around here this weekend!

The first stage of the 2nd biggest bike race has been here this weekend, passing right past the end of my street!!

Giro D'Italia Belfast 2014

And at home, I took the notion to move my rooms around!  I had an epiphany!

Why have a huge big bedroom (which I don’t spend much time in) and a small sewing room (which I spend practically all my time in!).  My sewing room leads off my bedroom so with much humping of furniture, lots of bumps and bruises later, I now have a cosy wee bedroom and a giant workroom!  Squeeee!

Plenty of room now for me and my apprentice!

And speaking of my apprentice, just look at what she’s been up too:

Shannon's QAYG Handbag

A ‘Quilt as you go’ handbag (she made this in a few days by simply following my pattern!):

We found some old Jeans pockets which were perfectly co-ordinated with her fabrics!

A Laptop Sleeve (she combined 2 patterns and rustled this up in an afternoon!):

Fabrics from Ikea!

And her first quilt top:

Look who was lurking behind!!

This will be a class sample – she’s certainly got the sewing bug!  Should I be worried??

Have a great start to the new week!
