As a prelude to next weeks dyeing workshop, Sheila bought us in the backing she has done for Sappho's quilt,
Sheila has made this such a personal backing, with Sappho's name, and many references to Madeira, and other personal references on the backing. It will make Sappho's quilt reversible.
Denise is on a roll, a bag making roll that is, she went back to Johno's for more fabric and with help from Robin found the perfect match for the inner shoulder strap and lining.
Denise also used the lining fabric for the circles that she has appliqued to the front of the bag using a lovely gold thread and machine embroidery stitch. And the best news, she has promised to make some for sale at the Christmas Fair.
Because it was the first afternoon tea for the new year we needed something a bit spesh, so asked the DIL to make us some cup-cakes. Oooooh! major Yum!, she made these little chocolate raspberry mud-cakes with a delicious frosting topped off by little sparkly pink decorations.
DIL is wanting to start a party cake business, and with darlings like these she will be a great success. Just had to have another brag and show a close-up.
