1 sleep left.

Diane popped round today with her R.R.C. Due to life being a bit hectic, it was decided to have two months to turn the fabric into a vessel. This fabric was made by Margaret, quilted by Nickie, cut up and stitched into a different shape by Debbie, made into a vessel by Diane and now I have to embellish it. I got the idea from a Quilting Arts article earlier in the year . At the beginning of September we will have a get together to give the completed vessel back to its owner. I wonder how the others are getting on, I haven't seen or heard that they have swapped yet.
Talking of Q.A., I got the latest copy when I went to Craft Arena delivering posters for the F.E.T exhibition, I also managed to get the black velvet ribbon I needed for my' butterfly.' Denise is very kindly donating the magazine 'Stitch' to our group of Y.E.

Sue from Tylers Patch persuaded me (I didn't need a lot! LOL) to look at the handmade Fimo buttons and beads in the shop next door to her. I just couldn't resist these beads and pencil, very reasonable too.

Today's baking is Scrumptious Slice to take away on holiday. I just love this, marzipan, apricots, coconut and chocolate in flaky pastry. Another very quick and easy recipe if anyone wants, just forget about the diet!

This evening, after many interruption's, I have made for a friend but I can't post a picture yet as she reads this blog.

I've cleaned the house, filled the fridge and freezer for my son and his friends , the packing is all done ready for the off tomorrow.
