I spent the weekend in Duxford doing demonstrations for Lady Sew and Sew. I have to admit doing 2 shows back to back was hard work, but it's always a lot of fun and it's so great to meet people (especially when I spend most of my days alone sewing in my craft room). I cut out lots of Christmassy half square triangles for a couple of projects that I'll be spending the next week or so on. I'll be sure to show you once they're finished!
Have a lovely week - I'm going to take a very long soak in the bath today and get myself unpacked and raring to go for another busy week sewing!
