More of the same please!!

Another couple of scrappy squares to show you in bright and mustard yellow...

Yesterday involved a trip into the village for morning tea with dear son at the most fantastic bookshop-teashop, surrounded by beautiful books and scrummy cake ( I had to try some cake before I took the photo, it wasn't the waitress!)...

And then a most successful charity shop spree.  A fantastic floral double sheet suitable for backing quilts galore for £3.50 in the first shop, and later on a huge bag of Aida, ribbon and a couple of hoops for 50p!  Yes, 50p!!!

We also spotted this beautiful picture in the French antique shop; fabric and buttons in a beautiful frame, unfortunately my picture through the window doesn't do it justice...

I also got to work on the next stage of Frustrating George!  It was truly the sewing equivalent of a practical joke, on me!!  No matter how hard I concentrated, every piece eluded me!

But I got there in the end... just.
