any excuse for cake
finally there's some sewing on this blog,
two little (50x50cm) quilts for twin babies
not sure how practical the white will be
these new mums, don't they know about the staining powers of carrot puree....
I just need to finish sewing the binding on them. I can't decide how I feel about hand sewing, in some ways it's so lovely; it's quiet, it's more sociable, you can sew whilst watching tv, or at the children's swimming lessons, and it's quite nice to have a slow pace, but in other ways it's soooo slow, and whilst my machine can make lovely even stitches I can't and it never seems very strong.
but a quilt with a hand stitched binding always seems like it's finished with love, so I guess there's nothing for it.....
and afterwards there's always a cup of tea to revive you - this tea cosy's for a friend, J asked last night after the tea went cold, why we don't have a tea cosy, and do we know anyone who makes them... I guess that's what he's getting for Christmas then!
I've just realised I've missed by a couple of days my blog anniversary, can't believe it, a whole year, it's been such a joy to make so many friends, so thank you, all of you, for making it a truly special year, and in true blogger style, help yourselves to a piece of anniversary cake.
