Out for tea day

Did a bit of sewing this morning, have the blocks for the runner finished and sashed, just have the bottom and top border to put on. Then it needs layering up, quilting and binding. I also washed the towels, they are blowing in the breeze, should be able to fetch them in before we go out.

Toiling a bit for fresh idea of things to do for the fair. I am going to do a couple of the Christmas Tree wallhangings and I have some stockings to make up. I am going to use up the fabric left from the play mat to make a couple of child friendly ones, will use strips of the fabric for the backs. Might also do a couple more large mats to take a turkey serving dish using 10 inch squares for Delectable Mountains.

DB was in the garden for most of the morning.

 We had cheese on toast for lunch. Its the village over 60's tea today. The village young wives put it on every year, its funded from the two lotteries the village runs. Its a chance for people to socialise. Some of the villagers are unable to get out much, so they are collected and taken home by volunteers.

Update

Back from another excellent 'Summer tea'. fruit salad, ham, quiche and pork pie. Various salads followed by delicious desserts, cheese and biscuits, tea or coffee and mints.......there was the usual quiz and tombola. DB got a 7 day pill box, me...a large jar of Vicks vapour rub!! It won't be me using it!!

Home now, we will settle to watch TV for a couple of hours.

We had dark clouds scudding over but we now have sun and blue skies so a nice end to the day.

  1. You did, indeed, have and lovely day with your sewing successes, project ideas, laundry, and the delightful tea to enjoy! DB also had a good day as he got to do his gardening and also enjoy the tea. Nice!

    It's a hot day here with temps at 86*F and sunshine. I'm off to get the mail as it's a trek to the mailbox and will be under my umbrella so I can hide from the sunshine. Lupus and sunshine don't do well together.

    In a little while, I plan to cut 1" light borders for the St. Patrick's wall quilt, sew the first into place, then get back to piecing the Piano Key 3rd border. Won't you be glad when this is finished?! :) I certainly will be glad to have it completed at last.

    Hugs!

  2. Take some everyday quilting to the Christmas market. People don't always want tdecorative stuff when they are gift shopping. An assortment of themes are sold locally and do well
