Home alone..... Take 2......


Well I tried for another "Home Alone Day" on Sunday....... 
Music ..... Gav and Pippa have gone model plane flying so looking good at the moment.


Breakfast on the patio
                                                         Banana cake in the oven.  


Oooooops look who popped in for a chat.....June (g/daughter)...... but this time she didn't stay long and she thought it was very amusing to interrupt my alone day...... she lives next door to me so popping in is easy.


I did make it to afternoon tea  and was able to get a bit of sewing done during the day.


This quilt is from a Jelly Roll Book and called "Blossom Time", I'm very happy now its finished.




I started making this "Mai Crystal Ball Pin Cushion" last week and it was giving me lots of trouble but its done now and it will be the last one I do.... its cute but a bit of a pain to make.




Yesterday we visited Norreen in her new house for another fun day. We were a very small group again with a few girls away but Sandi and I made up for them with our giggling......  this is the house warming gift we gave Norreen for her new sewing room.


Thanks Sandi for this photo...... it took 6 hands to put my pin cushion together and I was just a little bit grumpy doing it...... I'm getting a bit of a reputation for silly photos.


I couldn't resist this photo of Corinne (g/daughter) in her feet warmers, she jumped into my sewing with them on and plopped on the floor so I think she should get a reputation like mine....... silly photo girl.

Your quilt looks lovely Helen. I bought one of those pin cushion kits at last year's Stitches Show and it's still in it's bag. I did pull it out when I reorganised my sewing room last week but maybe it will stay there a bit longer!

Hooray - you had some time to yourself and some lovely visitors. The quilt is wonderful. So glad you finished your pincushion - a wonderful achievement of patience and persistence :)
