Sewing Sleepover

Home again after a fabulous weekend spent with eight lovely ladies and hosted by  my friend Sue.

We sent hours playing with our “Happy Village”…

020

and often asked each other why we were doing it..

019

I wonder how many of the villages will be completed?????? I still have a longggggggggggg way to go………..

On Saturday Loris ( one of our Patch Lady’s) come over with her pots of dyes and the visitors enjoyed dying all their white fabrics…

009

There was lots of oo’s and ah’s as the fabrics were removed from the bags, washed, then dried to reveal all the pretty colours…..
