I made two pretty, twirly skirts from a £2 fabric remnant and the first one was well worn last week by the younger of the Brighton Belles during her visit.
The second will be given to my German Fraulein who arrives for a visit at the weekend. The fabric is so lovely and is almost the same as "Belle & Boo" which is so popular with children at the moment.Perfect for her forthcoming 6th birthday
Joining in with Annie's Friday Smile (over at astitchintimeblog) as I am so happy to have my family visiting over these few weeks. The best gift I could have.
Recently my quilt group had a fun day out to Chester courtesy of our bus passes.
It is a beautiful black & white timbered cathedral city.
Take a look at this link to see Chester in 360 degree panoramas
When we arrived in Chester we crossed the road from the railway station to the Queens Hotel and enjoyed morning coffee (and their delicious homemade shortbreads) in the comfort of their splendid lounge. It has almost become a tradition!
I chose the best seat in the hotel..........need I say that I had HIGH TEA instead of morning coffee.
I definitely went up in the World!
Afterwards to we took the bus link into the centre of the city and visited our favourite haunts including the gorgeous Liberty Bell shop on the rows.
Well there had to be fabric involved somewhere.
Later we had an Italian lunch in Fattoria in Bridge Street. They serve delicious, authentic home made Italian food and the service is excellent.
