Today there’s a FQ Retreat linky party going on over at the Fat Quarterly Blog if you want to check out all the bloggers who’ll be there next weekend.

Fat Quarterly

And as I’ll be there in the flesh, I’m linking up too!

If you are visiting my blog for the first time, hello and welcome! I’m looking forward to meeting so many of you next weekend!  I’ll be one of the few speaking with a Northern Irish accent and I’ll be tagging along with some of my fellow Brit Bee gals, among others.

I’ve got all my workshop requirements gathered up (Saturday: Framed Purses and Potholes), and there might be a pressie or 12 making their way into my case too! (More on that after the weekend!).

Only 6 more sleeps for me, and then I’ll be high in the sky!

Anyone want to admit being old enough to remember ‘Watch With Mother’?

I’m waaaaaaaaaay too young of course, but my youngest and I had a wee ‘Sew With Mother’ session today.

Her friend turns 11 next week, so instead of me turning out another pencil case/pouch/suitable gift, I said she could do it!

She choose a green and aqua palette and did a crazy patched front, and striped back:

Finished size: 10.5″ x 6.5″



Doesn’t the Fimo ‘lolly’ zipper pull match the lining well?

I only did the boring bits i.e. the zip and lining!

All we need now are some goodies to fill up this monster case and we’re done!

Hope you’ve been enjoying some spectacular sunshine today!
