Finishing Touches and Appreciation

Tonight, at my sewing circle I will be putting the finishing touches on three projects I have been working on. (There will be some show and tell to come.)

I had the most blissful day yesterday working on these projects...sewing almost all day. My man (with help of the newly purchased Wii) entertained the kids, polished and vacuumed my car and tidied up the yard whilst I finished the buttonholes on Eddie's winter jacket and completely made Ella's velvet swing coat.

So I think that a public Declaration of Appreciation for his efforts is in order!

Also, I have almost finished a quilt for my new nephew to be. So my sewing basket is packed, full of hand sewing for tonight. And I am full of anticipation for plenty of chatting, raucous laughter and scrumptious food, because you can't have a gathering of women like that without some mighty fine food.

Here is my contribution, Bakewell Tart.

Ooh that sneaky peak of Eddie's jacket looks lovely.
Can't wait for the full reveal.
