A week off work was spent being very busy indeed - with 2 separate trips to Bungay with friends. Firstly I'd planned a trip there on Tuesday with my friend Helen - we did a little bit of shopping in Sew and So's - I needed some fabric to make another baby quilt, and these packs of mini-charms in the range Comma by Zen Chic for Moda were perfect for this, and I couldn't resist this black and white numbered fabric (599 Numbers by The Henley Studio for Makower UK) for the backing. Of course a lime green spot for the binding was just what I was looking for! Then trotted off to lunch at Earsham Street Cafe, where we both had the spiced sweet potato, leek and coconut milk coup followed by some delicious cake...
...this was followed on Wednesday with another trip there with my friend Sue. This involved coffee AND lunch at Earsham Street Cafe, and a shopping trip to Sew and So's. I'd seen the spiced apricot crumble on the menu at the cafe when I was there on Tuesday, and luckily it was still on the menu on Wednesday and it was as delicious as it looks! I'm rather fond of batiks, and these four half meters were just what I needed to make some more place mats with to go in my newly decorated dining room - maybe I'll have time to make them at the end of my week's stay-cation, before I have to go back to work!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
