Basket workshop

Coleman's Warehouse at Rushden was the venue for Fridays workshop.
I love going there as the atmosphere is so relaxed and I always learn something new.
Six of us enjoyed the workshop with Trish lining a basket. All the fabric [ 2 metres of it!] plus the basket were provided making this a real bargain workshop for £20.
We were allowed to chose our own fabrics, so mine were blue flowers and pink check.
My friend Christine arrived while I was looking around the warehouse and unknown to me chose the exact same fabrics from the large selection in the store!

While making the basket I thought how nice the flowered fabric would be for curtains in my Happy Room, funny the ideas that go through my head!
The thought persisted so a quick text to Chris asking him to measure my window [ funny how he never wonders why I ask these questions when I should be doing something else!]. I then bought the fabric for new curtains, this was not on my plan when I left home.
In fact it turned out to be an expensive visit to Coleman's as I needed batting, plus having said no more Christmas fabric items I then bought a Christmas banner kit.
Apart from the cost I seem to have loaded myself down with a lot of projects to make before Christmas.
My basket before the handles were put back on.
My shopping: Batting, fabric, banner and a polystyrene ring.

It was a great day, plus I filled my loyalty card and get the next workshop for free.

A few days in Norfolk

We decided to take a few days away in Norfolk and booked a chalet on the Sundowner Park. The chalet is pretty basic but has all mod cons. Ho...
