Summary of my sewing weekend.

Sometimes you sort of get the wind under your sails and just manage to achieve loads in a short period of time. 

As mentioned earlier today my Jalie patterns turned up in the post yesterday and this event coincided with my D Mike having to go to visit his son leaving me with yesterday afternoon and most of yesterday evening to play with my new toys.

My first job was to finish a fleece that I cut out on Friday evening.  The Fleece came out of my stash and was only £2 per meter.  I only purchased a meter because it was 70" wide.  At the same time I had purchased this fleece, I had also purchased some zips and thread and found some lovely diamant√© zips for only £1 each so decided to add this to the red fleece. I used pattern Kwick Sew 3532 another TNT pattern which is quick, easy and fits nicely.

So here are the fruits of my sewing labour this weekend.

3 x Jalie scarf-collar tops, and one fleece.

Last but not least my Son, his wife and our beautiful little granddaughter came for lunch today.  I cooked a family favourite, slow cooked shoulder of lamb with all the usual trimmings that the family love, roasted potatoes, parsnips, cauliflower cheese, mixed vegetables and our lovely red wine gravy - yummy.

We have an apple tree in the garden which is holding the last of its crop.  I sent the boys out to hunt and gather what they could so I could make another family favourite, apple crumble, which I now understand is the same as apple crisp across the pond, with home made "real" custard.

Needless to say, there were a lot of people sitting around after lunch feeling very full.

Last but not least my beautiful GD was having great fun running around the house and garden in her brand new shoes.  These we her first real shoes and she found the noise they made on floor very exciting.
