Look what I found in the new shopping centre

We have a new shopping centre in Cardiff, complete with John Lewis ( haberdashery! Woohoo!)
One of the shops in the new centre has this amazing window display - all antique sewing machines. My husband thought I was daft, I was so excited. I think he walked away when I got the phone out to take this picture!

I have No idea what the shop is called, but I think they sell men's wear.

What an excuse!

I took a quilting class on Saturday with Deborah O'Hare.
Although I wasn't really looking forward to it on the day (no real reason, just was not in the mood!) it was one of the best classes I have evr taken. I had a great time!
We used sweetie wrappers to make the applique shapes and then covered the wholelot with organza before quilting. I havent finished quilting the background yet, and we're away this weekend, so I hope I will be able to get to it next week.

The photo doesnt really show how bright this piece is!

It does make me happy!
