So - today was our sewing day at Scamblesby - a fabulously friendly day , organised by Sewingbuddy and catered for by Jean - its a day to just sit, sew and chat. We all enjoy it so much that we are branching out and meeting on one Saturday a month as well - get us!
Having finished my Anni Downs quilt, I took it for a show and tell, but focussed on sewing the Tuesday night blocks - I managed to sew 7 blocks in total so will need, tonight, to layer up the blocks and check off which ones still need to be completed.
I also made a start on some of the free machine embroidery - trying out two different patterns. Again I am not an expert but I am feeling a little happier about the outcomes.
Then Pat arrived - she had been at a papercraft show. She bought me a little pressie - a lovely tin from the Lynette Anderson range - how lovely that she thought of me!
So - if that's the high - then what was the low? Well two of them really - the lesser is that I dropped my phone when I got home so am now the proud owner of a cracked screen which I would want mending before I go away on holiday. Of a more serious nature, and one that puts others in perspective, is that Jean and I were held up by a car accident. We didn't see it but it looked like a large car had knocked a lady off her bike. I can only pray that she is okay!
