Sunny Sewing Saturday!

Well much of today has been taken up with finishing Rhonda's prize, but if it's going to remain a secret, I really wouldn't trust her to look away if I showed you!  So you will all have to wait until it has arrived in Tennessee!

But one thing I did discover is that prescription sunglasses are the business!  I have never had them before; my vision hasn't really been that bad to bother, but now I have literally seen the error of my ways.   I sat in the sun sewing and I could actually see what I was doing without squinting!  Bloody marvellous!

So in trying to think what I could show you this evening I found a few of pics I took this week and didn't get to include already...

... this £2 linen Western Australia souvenir table cloth from a charity shop just begging to be cut up and rearranged into something else, (which will probably just look like a bigger table cloth... eventually!)...

... these childhood favourites in a local bakery, which the kids thought were hilarious!  Cornets, without ice-cream but marshmallow instead!...

... and to counteract the above, the apples in the garden are ripening quite nicely, (I've killed the strawberry plant and the sunflowers, so I take no credit for these!)...

Off the Kent to deliver the birthday quilt in the morning, so I will report back tomorrow xxx


  1. Happy birthday to your mum. Enjoy your visit.

  2. You will definitely be in Mum's good books after that parcel is delivered...enjoy :)

  3. Happy birthday to mum, hope she has a great day

  4. hope your mum loves the quilt! must book opticians! Have you noticed how much more saturated colours are too? That's what always gets me when I come back with new glasses :)

  5. Great news on the specs, squinting aint good for wrinkles :-P Have a wonderful day with mum tomorrow, I'm sure you're going to be massively in her good books when she sees her wonderful quilt x

  6. I love my prescription sunglasses too! Great for driving! Have a lovely day with mum, I'm sure she'll be stoked with the quilt. Love the table cloth btw -shame to cut it up. Jxo

  7. I love your tablecloth. I have one that my granny embroidered. I'm not sure what to do with it. Can't wait to see what you do.
    Hope you have a lovely day with your mum :)

  8. Rx sunnies are the biz! You know I make specs, right? I have lots of pairs. Lucky me!
    I love that tablecloth! Can't wait to see what you do with it. Bet Mum loved her quilt, yes? How could she not?!

  9. I totally would have looked away....*wink, wink*. I too wear prescription sunglasses but they are the old prescription and I am now in need of bifocals...UGH!! They really do make a huge difference.

  10. Oh, come on and show us Rhonda's goodie. Rhonda will look away for a few days I'm sure.

    Enjoy the day with Mom. She's going to love it and you're going to feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It's the best ever!
