Another successful sewing day with the usual suspects, Rachel, Deb, Rachael and Gwyneth - also newcomer, Mel. This time Deb was the birthday girl (we celebrated a few days early) and she got thoroughly spoiled. Deb had admired the Fractal Pillow I made for a swap way back here, and has frequently dropped hints about having her own, so I could not disappoint her . Again a rainbow ring with low volume background, a deep purple shot cotton backing and that prismatic rainbow fabric for the binding. I think at some point I am going to have to make myself one too. As usual a Liberty pincushion completed the package. The Fractal pillow was also the second finish from my Q3 Finish-Along goals.
Lots of yummy food again - I made a beetroot coconut soup - recipe from my Sarah Raven cookbook - again lots of similar ones on google. Yes, margaritas were consumed - this time, they were frozen pineapple. A beautiful chocolate Baileys mud cake was made for the birthday girl.
All in all another fun day, great food and company lots of laughs and oohing and aahing over projects and fabrics. The perfect way to end a weekend.
