Yesterday's sewing

Yesterday my lovely friends Vicki and Christine came to do some sewing with me!

For lunch, the lovely bakery quiche and salads. Lovely and refreshing on such a HOT day!!


I decided to make this beautiful slice. I am not a lover of Licorice, but this slice is DELICIOUS!! And, talk about quick! (OH, and we DIDN'T have cream cake either ;=)



We talked about doing a project together, and with both Christine and myself fear the dreaded zipper, I wanted to do a project that had one in it. Vicki is a whizz at that sort of thing, so if I got into any trouble, she could help out lol! So we all worked on this little project from HERE.


The night before, I did one stitchery for the front, then did another in the morning, but then decided to use this fabric which really did not need a stitchery:


With little sewing works all over it, it looked a treat!


It was actually not bad to put together, and I plan to make the hexagon one. I tried to 'google' free hexagon templates so I can get ready to make it, but got a virus after clicking on one!! Luckily, my virus protector was current and it did not make it to my computer! Anyone know where I can get the free templates? I am a little hesitant to go looking again!
Thankyou Vicki and Christine for such a FUN day xx

Hi Sarah

Here is a link to hexagon paper for you http://www.printablepaper.net/category/hexagon_graph. If it doesn't work just go to www.printablepaper.net and then you should be able to find the right category from their. Good luck

I should have said from "there" not from "their". Sorry just have to fix as I hate getting words mixed up.

I find zips are easy to put in I am half way to making that cute bag but finding the instruction a bit hard to follow.
cheers

Christine said...

And thank you Sarah. Already looking forward to our next get-together.
