What a wonderful day and such a great proud day to be British!
I thought Katherine looked beautiful and she and William looked very much in love.
I feel very proud to have the Royal couple as Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (where we live) and think that they are a wonderful example of our future monarchy.
My hubby and I had travelled to my parents' house which is about 30 miles away and we had a street party with games and party food.
A day to be remembered for many, many years to come.

Show and Tell

The baby quilt top is done! I was pleased that it only took a day and a half to do (half day on cutting and a day laying out and sewing)
From this...


And finally by Sunday night it looked like this...

 I really feel pleased with it and hopefully it will be basted and I can quilt it. I love straight-line quilting especially on quilts based on squares and I think this will be perfect for this.
Back to work tomorrow but only for a day because then we have the Royal Wedding. It will be a great day and we are going to a street party with my family which will be really great. I look forward to seeing Catherine's dress and also our nice champagne breakfast! We have so few excuses for a nice community day like this so this will be great! Let's just hope that the weather stays nice (rain is forcast =( )

After six very long months of not sewing I finally managed to get some fabric out and cut into it. With having moved house just after Christmas and two accountancy exams in June, I have barely had any time let alone some clear space. We have a lovely long holiday with Easter and the royal wedding so I have decided to have a few days away from studying to do some sewing. I must get a move on because a friend has a baby girl due any day. I love sewing for little girls and can justify using as much pink as I want.
