Sewing Sunday

Blew the dust of my sewing machine and made some union jack inspired fabric pictures today. Thought I should start and get ready for the Spirit of Christmas Fair in November. I have painted canvases and made fabric gifts but have a long way to go to fill the stand.

In the background I have had to listen to The Ashes cricket all day thanks to Christian. It has been coming from Cardiff and I am very glad the first test match is finally over. We have just a few days rest before it starts all over again at Lords in London. I can't wait!!!
