Sew 'N Social

Yesterday I attended the run by Fran and Tilly at Pitsford Village Hall [ just outside Northampton]. It is a great day where a project is offered or you can work on your own sewing.

Although I liked the project on offer [ a cat picture] I really wanted to complete some of my 44 UFO's.
The room is nice with plenty of table space and within minutes of arriving a drink just seems to appear on your table. Jane is responsible for all the food and drinks. Eleven o'clock and its time for another drink and home cooked biscuit.

Around 1pm lunch tables are set up and a cooked lunch is served, chicken burgers with lots of side dishes were followed by either a peach flan or mixed fruit flan and juice.

Back to the sewing tables and everyone is given a free raffle ticket, I was really lucky and won the prize of a pretty FQ and ribbon.  More food at 3pm, yummy home made cake. All this for £22.50

A really nice day and if you are interested there are places available on the June 28th workshop where the project on offer is an unusual hand bag or you can do your own thing with help from Tilly or Fran.

It's nice to go somewhere to do crafty stuff and be fed as well. No lunch bag to think about!

Sounds really nice ... but what is a pretty FQ and ribbon? Congratulations ... whatever it is.

Another up & down week

I cannot believe the bad luck we are having at the moment, it seems to go on and on... First the good news: I attended a sewing day at Bed...
