~*~ Pinwheels and Teacups ~*~




Had a really great Friday;

Met up with the Friday afternoon FQ's crew for lunch.The idea was to get the chatting out of the way and maybe some constructive sewing would get done.Did it work? No, we just chatted for longer!!!

Started this 40's Pinwheel quilt from the Kathleen Tracy book. This is the 3rd project in a row from this book, a real gem!!

Verity had her Halloween party on Friday night and it was great fun. Verity organised it all herself, planned the food and drink, decorated, carved pumpkins, sent out the invitations,fancy dress costumes, music, transport etc, etc........and tidied up afterwards!!!!!!!

In Nigella's recent cookery book, she served dessert in old-fashioned teacups and saucers and it looked so brilliant. Julie had a night away in the lakes and brought this lovely cup and saucer as a prezzie. I am going to look out for a few more to put puds in.

The pinwheel quilt is lovely Helen - I've got that book too so I must make something from it. Love the teacup too. But why haven't you put my photo back up? You should read the comment my sister put on about making me into a massive pumpkin pincushion! It's on the post where I talk about Chopwell woods and meeting you. The concept of me as a pumpkin has really caught on! Lucy x

The pinwheels look lovely in those 30's prints. That's such a nice book. Love the cup and saucer as well:)

Thanks for visiting me a leaving a comment. The teacup and saucer are just beautiful. Far too delicate to survive in this household unfortunately

Hey Nigella, looking forward to seeing what you make to put in the teacups, Verity's Rocky road from the Nigella book was good. Love the pin wheel quilt too, looking forward to seeing it finished.
