Friday I took another roster day to go on a short roadtrip to Berry with Paula - Paula wants to make a candlewick quilt for her mother, so we went to Sew and Tell to buy the variegated thread Paula had in mind to use. We also visited almost every other shop in Berry plus a few shops in Nowra. Lovely day out.
In early May, Elizabeth's best friend from school will be married. Elizabeth and 2 other girls will be bridesmaids and each can wear whatever dress she likes as long as it is black. Elizabeth has been looking for a dress but not found "the one" as yet, so I offered to make her dress. Elizabeth and Matt came down on the weekend so that we could spend some time looking through pattern books to see what is available. She has a few ideas and will talk to Mary, the bride, before we make a start on the dress (probably over Easter).
Saturday night we went out for dinner with a bunch of friends to celebrate a birthday - was so nice having Elizabeth and Matt along.
I can't show the goodies I've been working on lately (at lunchtime or at home) because they're all for swaps, birthday presents etc. "Mother Angel" is something I made in a former life (before patchwork when hardanger and cross stitch ruled my world). I have made a couple of these angels and have patterns and makings for a couple more plus a lovely santa (half done). One of these days I'll go back to this lovely form of stitching.
