Is the Great British Sewing Bee rubbing off on you too?

Afternoon all, it's Friday again and it will soon be time for the weekend, which means working for me and maybe some fun crafting for you?
Yesterday I had a busy day crafting, whoop, whoop, which is why, unfortunately I didn't get around to posting on here.  Move over the Great British Sewing Bee the machine is out!

Now I had two or three projects to make with my machine.  The first was to complete a second patchwork cushion for my front room, I bought the material ages ago so it was about time I got it started and finished. Another project off the to do list!  :)
I have my cushions to do for my crochet covers too plus a Tilda Santa.
My pal Irene also very kindly brought me a desk tidy cut out ready to make up, in just my favourite colour! 
Can't wait to make that.

Irene and I had a lovely day, stopping for lunch and cake! 
I managed to finish my patchwork cushion which is now in the washing machine to finish off the whole effect, I will show you soon.  For those who have followed my blog over the last couple of years, you will have seen my earlier cushion.  
It was certainly more fun than sewing alone, we did have a giggle or too and it was also a good opportunity for me to get back into the rhyme of using my machine which did need a good dusting down.  Irene could keep me in check!  (Or try to.)

After our day sewing we had a trip over to Varis craft shop in Forres as there was a special event on last night.  I bought some lovely embellishments and ribbons and these...........for another wee project.

I couldn't resist this beachy material, just FAB.  I have big plans for this little project, I guess it's another watch this space for now.
I'm itching to get started but today I have another card order to finish and uniform to iron before the kids finish school for the weekend.  Yippee!
Have a good one, catch you again very soon.  x

Erika can I have some of what you have been eating or drinking that has given you all this energy!!! I am tired just reading all what you have done in the last couple of days, your next project looks interesting. Look forward to seeing your cushion cover too. Hazel xx

What a busy girl. Looking forward to seeing your cushion. I love to watch the Great British Sewing Bee but it doesn't make me reach for my machine. I think it's because they're all so talented!

Hi Erika, you are going to be busy. I've not watched the sewing bee, but it seems to be a popular programme.
Looking forward to seeing your projects as you make them.
I'm working tomorrow too, hope it goes quickly, hugs Kate x
