Party time!

Great to be invited once again to the Party in the Chookshed!

Thank you Chooky for your invitation - I do hope that you are able to let your hair down and have a great weekend.

It has been a lovely day here - shhhh cos it can't last! So I have spent lots of time in the garden taking advantage in the lull in the rain. Hedges today - the rain weighs them down so you get soaked walking past.

However there was some time to sew after lunch as I caught up with the Archers and finished putting together these tumbling blocks. They are now pinned and ready to applique onto the background fabric.

A bit of time for some secret stitching too. This evenings task is to sew these tumblers down to the background.

In true party style we have feasted on paella and the wine has been flowing!

Wishing you all a great weekend.

  13. Your tumbling blocks look very pretty, hope you were able to get them stitched onto their background.
    We used to listen to The Archers, for ever such a long time, but became disillusioned with the program after the Rob/Helen drama. For me it was becoming too much like Eastenders and Emmerdale. Shame because I really miss listening to all the characters!
    Have a great weekend.
