Last night was the final night of this class project and there were finishes galore. Check them out on Judith's class round-up post. I am so chuffed with this wee cushion which I am keeping ALL FOR MYSELF! If there's not too much sewing going on around here for a day or two, you'll know it's because I can't tear myself away from stroking it!
Moving on, Hubby and I had a day off work today and we set out to make a wee relaxed start on Christmas shopping and enjoy a peaceful lunch. You don't want to know how the shopping went, but let's just say I don't feel so relaxed now that we came home with only one small uninspiring bag to show for our efforts. VERY bad score on the Christmas shopping front!
We had a little detour when Hubby had to take a conference call with a client mid-morning. Instead of sitting in the car listening to one side of a business conference call for an hour, I took myself off on a wee jaunt around Ikea which we happened to be just beside at the time. Look what I scored (pun totally intended):

It's another one of those Ikea fabrics that we seem to be split over. Some of us like to use them, some of us don't. I like them for some things. Yes, they are very lightweight and I wouldn't necessarily use it on an heirloom quilt but they are fun and quirky and very suitable for some projects. This one I just bought because I was at a loose end waiting for the conference call to finish, but I'm sure I'll find a use for it before too long. For those who are interested this is a 58" wide print on cotton. It's a very lightweight cotton (similar to the scripted numbers print or the houses print if you are familiar with that) and today it was £4/m.
And finally, although I came home with a meagre and disappointing Christmas shopping 'haul', there was this little lovely waiting for me courtesy of Mr Postie -
Festive score! I have a plan for this very soon - keep watching.
Have a fun weekend, folks!
