Nw Zealand cushion cover numbr 2

Finished at last.

                                               Hear it is with it's mate.

 I have spent the morning in the garden doing some weeding, this afternoon the forecast rain has arrived, so having nothing else planed I got on and finished the cushion cover I started months ago . All I had to do was the piping and put the back on. I love the Jenny Rayment pattern. I still have two more fat quarts to use,  just waiting for the right pattern for the fabric.   Another thing for  "show and tell on Thursday.

Iron Caddy

I found this pattern on the internet .It is great for going to class as you have your own pressing mat and easy to take you HOT iron home. I used a ready made pressing mat and added extra wadding before backing it. I will take it to my next quilting meeting for "show and tell".

Little Ellingham show 3

The Little Ellingham vintage show was lovely , lots to see . There were demonstration of all the farm machinery working ,with ploughing competition. Heavy  horses ,Vintage Tractors, Vintage vehicle's.

The weather stayed fine both days, just a bit windy. We were glad to be in a marquee rather than our gazebo as I think it might just have taken off.

This was very worth going to, we will be back next year.  9/10 th August  2014

To-morrow our Fair in Attleborough Town Hall we have Story Time for young children as it is the school holidays. The two books are written and read by Karen Clark with illustrations by Paula Hickman.

This week-end and Leafy and I will be at Little Ellingham Vintage show. An event we have not done before so not certain on the number of people it attracts, it is on for the whole week-end .

I have just tried to remove some marks made on some of my work ,I hope it works   or I will have to sell at half price. Why do people not own up ?? O.K. enough of the whining .

My runner beans are doing well as is the trumpet vine , you can just see one of the beans .

 The trumpet vine I first found growing in West Vancouver next door to a place my Uncle and Aunt took me for Coffee at   The Bread Garden  .

The flower only last about a day .
But as you can see there are plenty to come.
Off to put up posters in the town for our Craft Fair to-morrow .
